I don't know if it's been reformulated but, this is not streaky at all... the first coat was near perfect and the second, spot on. I do use a thick-ish coat, and it self-levels perfectly. This color is seriously amazing. It's exactly the rose gold I craved. I'm getting the purple in this finish too! 123
I've had this polish for at least 6 months and struggled every time I tried to use it. I love the color but it always came out streaky. For example, if I applied a second brush stroke on top of a first, while the first was still damp, the top brushstroke would grab some of the color from the bottom and that looked like a mess. I finally figured out the best way to apply this. Apply quickly, generously, and try to use no more than three strokes on your nail. It dries quickly and then do the same with the second coat. If you can apply it smoothly, you'll have a great color payoff. It's a very lovely color. I'd say the color is worth 5 stars but the formula is only one or two so I ended up giving it four stars. 123
This is a lovely neutral. It needs care in application because it does streak like a lot of chrome-metallic polishes, but it looks great. I top this sometimes with an Essie chunky pink glitter called A Cut Above. Great combo. 123
Beautiful rose gold colour!
You need to be careful - goes a little streaky, but still great. 123
