Three coats to get this polish opaque. One coat definitely won't do it and two coats can still be a little too streaky. If you don't wait long enough for each coat to dry it can cause problems. Wherever you lay the brush down for the next coat, it can remove product and create a mark at the base of the nail, which is a pain. This polish chips after about three days and the tips are pretty worn by then too.
I am not impressed with the formula. There are so many nail polishes out there that I have tried and it seems like every single time I write one of these reviews, the "three day" time frame is when so many polishes fail me. Maybe I'm just tough on my nails. Or maybe all of these polishes really are just crappy. But whenever I come across one that lasts over that three day mark perfectly, that's when you know it has a great long-lasting formula. Then you'll know what the really great nail polishes are.
Overall, the color is beautiful and great for spring and summer, but the formula isn't the best. If you don't wear your polish for more than three days, you might be interested, but I wouldn't really recommend this line of nail polish.
Thanks for reading!
