I applied this using several coats to get it to this opacity. I think it was four total coats, topped off with two shiny coats of Seche Vite to smooth everything out.
My nails are getting pretty long, thanks to my Orly basecoat that I have been using. I'm pretty much down to the little last drops of that bottle, and I even put some thinner in their to use up every last bit. You betcha I am gonna repurchase this soon.
I am thinking of filing them back down though, just because I have already gotten tears in some of them and constantly fixing them with nail glue is getting a bit ridiculous. I envy women who have long, strong, thick nails!
