The good thing about wearing anything bling-tastic during winter time is my hands are safely tucked away in gloves where they can't distract me while driving. Teehee.
Three coats with topcoat. I also added an extra coat of clear under my topcoat as a spackle coat. Didn't really have any issues other than it thickening during the mani. I actually went and added a couple drops of thinner to it while I was applying my second coat. So just keep that in mind during application. Don't leave the bottle uncapped too long.
PS: This mani only really lasted three days for me. After that, it just started to pop off. Literally. The nail polish was so thick that instead of chipping, the entire whole sheet of nail polish on my nails just came off. So if you want to wear this for a special occasion, I would suggest not doing it too far in advance because you won't know when you'll just lose a nail of nail polish.
Mini History Lesson of the Moment: I want to share this little vid with you guys. It's the history of the Keep Calm and Carry on Posters. It's really interesting. I had absolutely no idea it originated in the Second World War. Please watch and enjoy.
