I applied two coats of Picture Polish Love over Essence Hardening Nail Base. The formula is - as a true crelly is supposed to be - not very pigmented and on the thin side. However, I had no issues with application and while you will still have some VNL at two coats, I prefer the translucent squishiness of it a lot more than the nearly opaque three coats. The red coral is so vibrant that it has enough "punch" to go at two coats and look delightfully bright and happy.
Final thoughts: There is always space in my stash for such a beautiful, juicy, bright red-coral hybrid!!! It will take me throughout the year and any occasion - oh and just look at the shininess of Love - this is WITHOUT Top Coat!!! Amazeballs, no?
I ordered Picture Polish Love with Pshiiit Boutique.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for dropping by :-)
