Basecoat: Salon Sciences Fiberglass Network (1 coat)
Color: Orly Rock Solid (3 coats)
Topcoat: NYC Grand Central Station (1 coat)
See what I mean? Anyway, application was really good - my brush tended to get a whole lot of polish on it, but as long as I was careful to wipe off any excess, it wasn't a problem. Consistency was fine, and cleanup went a lot better than I expected it to. I have a couple of bare spots but it's not really noticeable, either in photos or in real life.
I believe NYC Grand Central Station is really a clear quick-dry polish as opposed to a topcoat, but it's been getting rave reviews as a topcoat, so I decided to try it. Dry time is very nice - not as fast as Seche but just fine, and it's reasonably shiny. My manicure still has a little bit of texture to it, but I'm not blaming my topcoat for it - I used a not-smooth base coat, and this polish has a lot of glitter. It's still an acceptable texture - not anything like the Nubar Sparkles - and although I think a Gelous topcoat sandwich would work here, I just don't been like it's necessary.
