I applied two coats of La CC 1940 over Essence Hardening Nail Base. 1940 has a jelly formula, while not very pigmented the formula is easy to control and you will not need to reach for your clean-up items, it is that easy to apply. Dry time is about normal. 1940 dries rather shiny but I like those super dark reds with super high shine, I therefore applied Essence Better Than Gel Nails High Gloss (which is not available anymore).
Final thoughts: There was a time in my life - well actually it was about two years - when I solely and only wore Chanel Rouge Noir on my nails, day in and out, year in and out. I am sure you agree that I have owned my share of Rouge Noir bottles and so far I haven't felt tempted to buy a new one but my preference for those blackened reds have persisted over time and to the day I cannot get around buying the one or the other and La CC 1940 certainly is earning its place in the Pantheon of the blackened reds. In short - I am in love with LaCC 1940!!!
I ordered La CC 1940 with the website of La Couleur Couture here. Laccbeauty ships internationally.
