I applied the necklace designs to my ring fingers and thumbs and accented with a tiny pearl on each nail. I added a final layer of top coat to seal the design and was done! My photos were taken right after application, so they looks nice and glossy. I would probably need one last layer if topcoat to make this mani smooth and super glossy. The sandy texture really absorbs the top coat!
After trying this polish with and without topcoat I would have to say I prefer it on its own without a topcoat, I lot less effort plus it is so tough and long wearing! I thought that applying a top coat would make removal a bit easier, but I think it actually made it worse! That is the only thing I dislike about glitter polish, it takes more work than usual to remove, lots of scrubbing!
