Gem Crush - Big Money: Two coats gives great coverage as you can see but the glitter is sparce and colour sheer so needs at least that. This mani has no topcoat because I like the more matt texture of these polishes, especially on this one... no need to add anything else... So pretty, I love it!
Gem Crush - Lady Luck: Again, two coats; this time I did add a topcoat and you can vaguely see the shine it added, but to the naked eye it was glossy and felt smooth to touch. Saying that, even when left matt these polishes feel even and smooth, not grainy or catchy at all. As for removal, came off the nail very easily unlike some heavy glitters... but was difficult to remove from all over my fingers lol!
Complete Salon Manicure - Mermaids Tale: This is so pretty and my nubby nails and this picture really don't do it justice. Its a VERY sheer, gelly like, high gloss polish. This is three coats without any base colour as I wanted to see what it would take to get it opaque and to see it's true colour. Definitley says mermaid to me! Can't wait to try it over a white, green and a blue or grey!
