(Hello, awkward bottle shape!)
Basecoat: Gelous (1 coat)
Color: Borghese Stellare Notte (3 coats)
Topcoat: Seche Vite (1 coat)
So far I've noticed both a distinct purple shimmer and a teal shimmer. So pretty!
I'm going to take a pass on the part of the post where I usually talk about application. Why? I really, really hate the Borghese brush. It's all of the super-wideness of the SH Insta-Dri brush, with an awkward cap shape and a really short stem. AND - the neck of the bottle is super long, so I had real problems both polishing and judging the amount of polish I had on the brush. I will say that cleanup was really good, which is great, because I got this all over my fingers. I hate this bottle and brush so much I actually decanted it right after I took these photos. It's easily my least favorite bottle and brush (though I haven't tried the Nicole "new" brush, which might give it a run for its money, since I already hate those bottles, too).
Opacity was really good - without the stupid brush I might have gotten away with two coats, but I needed three since I made such a mess of it. This is a gorgeous color and I'll definitely be wearing it again.
