See that pretty shimmer?
In both pictures, there is topcoat on my thumbnail and none on my other fingernails.
Verdict: I like this color but it bubbled a lot on me. The finish isn't really matte like the bottle says, so I would wear this with topcoat due to the fact that it gets rid of bubbles and it brings out the pretty shimmer. Also, this color has great opacity. You could probably just use one coat, but I chose to use 2.
