Two coats with topcoat. This is incredibly opaque. I would have gotten away with one coat if it wasn't for some mistakes. Topcoat is absolutely required though, it dries satiny. I really worry about staining though. Even just doing cleanup around my nails have left my skin kinda green. Really not looking forward to taking this off. Although I think I want to leave it on for a long, long time.
Pic of the Moment: A little while back StBFF was in Banff and she got me a pen. This was dangling from the top of it. Hello Kitty wearing a beaver costume! I couldn't stand it so I took it off and put it on my cell phone. It's so ridiculously cute.
