I applied three thin coats of Picture Polish Serenity over Essence Hardening Nail Base. Serenity has simply a perfect formula - thin yet pigmented (you got it, those are my favorites) and there is just enough polish traveling on the brush to cover each nail with an even layer of polish. Due to the thinner consistency, I would suggest to rather go with three thin coats than two thicker ones - as Serenity is drying very fast, we don't talk a loss of time here. The shimmer makes this polish dry to a satin shine and in order to keep that effect even with Top Coat, I choose Cult Nails Wicked Fast, which is very shiny mind you, but not so glossy that it would "dull" the sight of the original satin finish.
Final thoughts: Picture Polish and the Polished Peripherals have me awed - they created "le" stunner. Serenity looks to me like Zoya Zuza and RBL Aqua Lily joined forces and some purple glitters jumped in to join the band. From Zuza comes the intense, strong turquoise, from Aqua Lily the clearly visible shift in shimmer from bright turquoise to pink. And I am really sorry to not have been able to capture the pink shine in my pictures but despite the sunny weather, the light is weak and the sun just doesn't have enough force to make that shine step forward on pictures - so you have to take my word for it: IT IS CLEARLY THERE AND VISIBLE IRL ;-)!
I ordered Picture Polish Serenity with Harlow & Co.
