I tested this polish with 3 different base coats: Zoya Anchor, OPI regular base coat & some generic kind I got at Sally's Beauty Supply. I got the least amount of shrinkage with the OPI so I went with that.
This polish is a navy jelly with aqua micro glitter and the bigger hex glitter of green and blue. It makes me think of a mermaid or the deep ocean or maybe even the universe. ;) For the top coat, I didn't go with my old faithful Seche Vite because I had read on another blog somewhere that the 2 didn't play nice with each other. I used Orly Polishield on my left hand & Zoya Armor (no drying drops) on my right so I could see which one held better. I had just the slightest bit more tip-wear with the Zoya but I am right-handed so I think they were both an even match.
As thin as this polish is I was surprised that it was opaque in 3 but it was and most definitely worth it! I'm going to wear this for as long as I can because it is so awesome. *Edit: It wound up lasting 3 days which is a long time for me.
