Application Instructions: For best results first apply a base coat to clean, bare nails. Then apply 2-3 coats of colored polish (depending on its consistency and thickness). For long lasting wear finish with a top coat.
This polish has multiple personalities. Indoors it looks gel-like and muted while in subtle natural light it becomes an opaque, vibrant, mango pulp orange. Unfortunately (for me, but perhaps not for you) it also becomes very neon when in direct sunlight which is not really my bag. Formula-wise it requires three to four coats on it's own to achieve full-ish opacity, but with an opaque base coat in white or orange it could probably be opaque in two. I like Action a lot but due to it's changeable colour I'm very careful where I wear it and am unlikely to wear it for more than a few days. If it could only maintain that mango-pulp hue 24/7 this would easily be one of my favourites.
More orange than it looks here. I thought it would be a true yellow orange mix. A little disappointed. Still a pretty colour, just not what I expected!
