I used a base coat of Seche Natural, only one coat of Riveter Rouge, and a top coat of Seche Vite. The formula was pretty awesome - no pooling but it wasn't too thin. After looking at my sun pictures, I could have probably afforded a second coat, but I was just too excited.
As you can see, the microglitter isn't as defined on the nail as it is in my bottle but look at that red! It reminds me a bit of China Glaze Drive In from the Retro Diva collection, but I know they aren't exactly the same. There's a bit of brush strokey ickness in this color but it's totally tolerable. I just recently buffed my nails, so it's not my natural ridges.
Check out the back of my bottle - all that microglitter is gone! It's like it all floated to the front of my bottle, possibly in shipment. Oddly, this reminds me a LOT of the Specialty/Glitters & Cremes collection that China Glaze came out with... tons of glitter in the bottle, not so much on the nail, but still beautiful.
In the shade picture, you can really can't see the glitter or the brush strokes at all - just a nice pretty red shimmer. How many reds can one girl have? Well this girl can have this one too. Happy camper!
