This is one coat of Essie As Gold As It Gets on top of OPI You’re Such A BudaPest. No additional top coat. It does not have a high shine finish, but it’s much better than the effect top coats from L’Oreal. It adds a soft layer of gold flakies. It looks stronger and more impressive in person. It was very hard to photograph. The effect can of course be intensified with more layers.
It applied very well, there was almost no need to dab it on, I could do a normal swipe across the nail and only added in a bit at the tip. To be honest, it applies better than my regular Essie top coat. I’m currently wearing the whole thing for the third day and no tipwear.
