Oh my god, this was a nightmare. I think this is 5 coats to get opacity and I still have VNL. And then after trying to get it just right for so long I smudged it. Badly and twice. I gave up on a Square Pants mani, took my pics and whipped out the remover. I was disappointed, but I will know next time to use a white base like Underwear. Maybe when I do Starfish Patrick or Bikini Bottom.
