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.
I wasn't very happy with this nail polish - the formula was very goopy and uneven. Definitely takes at least 2 coats and it was very hard to get a smooth finish. I found that if I shook the bottle excessively (for several minutes) I had fewer problems, but even with thorough mixing it still wouldn't go on as smoothly as all of the other Essie polishes I've tried. The colour is also very different from what I thought it would be based on the swatches I looked up online - it's more of a light coral pink (kind of orange-y) than a pale/rose pink like I had expected. I actually still really like the colour, but I was looking for something a bit more reserved (especially with a name like "High Class Affair", lol).
I'm lazy and like one coat polish even if it means a lighter colour. This one is too streaky at one coat. But two coats is lovely.
