Coral and me have a truce, so to speak. I'm Constantly trying to find the "Perfect one" and Coral puts up with my existence knowing I mean well. I don't know what is about coral I just don't feel like any of the ones I've tried are for me. I love the idea, but the idea doesn't always love me. If you know what I mean? Still this is a very pretty color! This is 3 coats, no base, no top.
