Illamasqua Radium Manicure

Illamasqua Radium - photo taken in the sunlight

This is a nail polish made in Australia called Illamasqua and this color is called Radium.  It's looks lighter in the sunlight or artificial light than it does in indoor light.  Inside it has more of an olive tone to it and it looks really retro and reminds me of a green color very popular in the 70's.  This polish was so difficult to apply since it was so thin and was drying before I was able to even apply three stokes to one nail! Also the brush wasn't perfectly straight and that made it made it very challenging to get a perfect edge near the cuticle. It was really frustrating and it even didn't play well with the top coats.  I used Perfect Formula's Manicure Booster as a base & top coat and then Seche Vite on top along with two coats of Radium.  This is the first time I have tried this brand and I'm wondering if the other colors are also hard to apply.  Have you tried this brand before and how was application for you?  I received two compliments the first day I wore it out and about.  It's a really pretty color.  I tried to get a photo that shows the olive appearance indoors, but I wasn't able to.  This color is described as "acidic lime, shimmer finish" on their website.  The shimmer is barely noticeable and this polish lasted eight days before having issues on the tips.
