This is a rather pigmented cream that is opaque in 1-2 coats. I say 1-2 because it took 2 coats for me because the brush kind of freaked me out. It's super short and kind of stubby. Not just the brush, the wand itself is also very short. I was really impressed with the formula. I hope to get used to the brush!
This is 2 coats on most fingers, 1 on some of them. The color is much more blue than in the pictures. It's a fairly "true" red. Of course, DH thinks he is hilarious and said I should be on a street corner. I responded that red is a fairly "tame" color by polish standards. I just tend to wear darker and/or more muted tones.
The last one is the most accurate swatch, though it's still pulling a bit more orange than the polish actually is.
