The Essence polish was a bit weird to apply. It went on fine, but if you didn't do it perfectly, it kind of got a little clumpy. Of course, I fixed it by applying another coat. I used two coats, but it was definitely opaque in just one. When that was dry, I topped it off with two coats of Nothin' Mousie 'bout it. The end result looked like a dark purple fine glitter polish.
Here's a few pictures of just the black polish. Please ignore how messy it looks! I fail at applying black polish. D:
Now, here's some pictures of the black with the pink glitter on top:
I really wish my camera could capture the true look of this manicure. It's really so purple-y and gorgeous. I love it. I love how Nothin' Mousie 'bout it applied as well. I would definitely recommend that polish, even if you do have to fish for the glitter hearts.
