I used three coats of TT Creme, but I'd wear just two coats. It was pretty opaque and even at just two coats. (Sometimes I do three, because the macro lens makes things see-through). This also felt like a light gel and again, I found that made it quite easy to apply.
Overall, I love the color and formula of both of these polishes. I am really pleased with them. You never know how polishes from a collection like this will be, but I think they are fabulous. If you are an orange lover (like me!), you'll die over these. I can't wait to try the other two!! By the way, I neglected to take a picture of the packaging, but it looks just like the lip gloss set packaging, so, totally awesome.
Sephora + Pantone Universe Color of the Year Nail Enamel Set is available now at Sephora.com. At $24 for four polishes, I think it's a good deal too!
