I bought this polish to use for a little French Nail moment at home- the polish is suupppeerrrrr pigmented, which I find to be rare for white polishes, but absolutely awesome for French nails. I used the miracle base coat first (which also has a beautiful, sheer light pink tint so also perfect for French nails), let it dry, then used the ends of some bandaids as a nail tip guide (improvising lol, but worked great!). The white polish went on in one swipe and I didn't have to fiddle with it to get an even coat. I removed the guide when the polish was still wet to avoid cracking or the polish pulling up, and the consistency is thick enough to hold its shape when its wet but it's not gluggy or goopy. Dried super quick, and followed with a top coat and it lasted ages! Would definitely recommend!
