I had the worst application with this one! This is 4 coats, no base, no top. This polish was awful, I kept trying to get an even, opaque application but after 4 coats it still wasn't even. This had a very glueish consistency to it. This is not a color I would normally wear so I'm not to upset it didn't work out. I think I might empty this bottle and use it to mix up my own!
