1 medium coat of this give good opaque coverage, and longevity is very good. I took these picks after 5 days of gardening, washing, cleaning and dish-washing and there is just a bit of tip-wear, no chipping or peeling.
I used my trusty Avon 24kGold strength as a base coat for this but didn't bother with a top coat just because I was in a hurry.
Its pretty, it comes off easily and didn't really stain my nails after 7 days of being on my nails. I like this to give a bit of colour if I am wearing black, or just on my toes to give a cool pop of colour.
