The application was perfect - two coats covered everything with no visible nail line. It even covered by bruised and icky index finger in two coats. Ellen dried quickly and I got three separate compliments on my nails today at work - two from men. I think this is a good color on me. :)
This mani is a few days old - base coat, three coats of Ellen and a Qtica topcoat. I had very little tipwear - I just had to add the extra coat because my cats claws are like daggers these days and Riley put a huge scratch in my polish last night.
