Shown here is two coats of Jessica Lime Cooler over Orly Bonder sealed with one coat of Out the Door. The formula was surprising; the first coat was a streaky mess but the second coat of Lime Cooler evened out so well that this mani only needed two coats!
The photo above looks a mess but from a bit further away it looked fine and you couldn't see the topcoat bubbles or small imperfections that macro brings to the party.
I applied the gemstones with topcoat and then sealed with it as well in order to have them stay put. And it worked well, they didnt come off until I picked them off. (Couldn't help it! But they stayed for two days without issue.)
