I used three coats, though I might have been able to stop at two. No problems with application, and swatches are without topcoat, so it's pretty shiny on its own.
Of course I couldn't resist doing a comparison, so I grabbed Catrice I Sea You and Sally Hansen Insta Dri Sea Breeze.
The Models Own falls nicely in between the other two; it's not quite as dark as I Sea You or as bright as Sea Breeze. If I can find two more suitable shades in my stash I'll do a hospital green ombre mani.
Unfortunately, I cannot say that no nail polishes were harmed in the making of this entry. There was an unfortunate incident with I Sea You; I dropped it from chest height onto a hardwood floor and the cap broke. Fortunately, not very much polish flew out of the bottle, so I was able to clean up the floor (and the nearby door that also got splattered). I also happened to have some empy mini bottles handy, so I was able to decant what was left. And thanks to the magic of the internet and the kindness of nail bloggers, I already have made arrangements to get a replacement, so as polish accidents go, this was minor.
