First off, I really love this color. I think it’s a good transition between spring and summer, it’s kind of a pastel but it’s also subtly bright. This is three coats and no topcoat-it is pretty shiny, it was opaque in two but still streaky. Two thick coats would also work. It did dry pretty fast. Overall, this was worth 99 cents. It is pretty opaque so this would be a good polish for nail art.
