This manicure features a polish called Pegasus from an Indie polish called Hare Polish. It has a lilac jelly base with silver glitter pieces that feature large octagon, medium dots and very small dots. I used three coats over a base coat of Perfect Formula's Manicure Booster and used it also as a top coat plus Seche Vite top coat to help it dry quickly. I also added another coat of Seche Vite several days later since I needed it to last longer than seven days due to vacationing with Hubby and not having the time to do another manicure. It lasted eleven days and if I added another top coat it would have probably lasted another couple days. The glitter on the sides started to snag stuff, but a top coat would solve that issue. You could get away with two coats if you don't mind seeing a bit of your nail underneath or by using an opaque lilac polish as the first coat. The glitter didn't curl, so there wasn't an issue with it snagging anything as long as you used enough top coat. It's a really pretty polish that looks good in any light. It's really easy to get super close to the cuticle line and that's the look I prefer. I know some people prefer to see a line of no polish between the cuticle and the polish, but for me that just looks like your manicure is a week old. This polish took a half hour to remove, so I would highly recommend using one coat of a opaque lilac polish first then only one or two coats of Pegasus on top.
