The formula is runnier than usual and is extremely streaky. It looked so strange, I took the first attempt off in the hope that it was just a bad fluke. This is three coats but I think four is needed to get it completely opaque. Bizarrely enough, it dries with a matt finish and you can hardly see the glitter. I was so disappointed but when I applied a top coat, it made a huge difference.
The top coat's shine brought out the colour intensity and the glitter becomes visible. This photo does not do the nail polish justice!
Edited to add: This was a pain to remove. The pesky glitter does'nt budge without abrasive treatment on the nails.
