Application: Surprisingly smooth!
Coats: 2 - could do with another, but I'm liking the visible nail line here.
Comments: I have never really thought of myself as a red nailpolish wearer, but as I put the first coat of this on, I actually gasped! It's a beautiful in-your-face red, and I think I'm liking it especially on my shorter nails. Since it was just a swatch, I tried a stamp over it in Sally Hansen Insta-Dry - Mango Motion. I'll have to wear this red soon.
