Skyscraper. Three coats, full sun, no topcoat. This little sparkler is a gorgeous deep midnight blue jelly with silver glitter in low light, and brightens to this beautiful indigo in full sun, as seen here. Love it! I don't own Essie Starry Starry Night to compare, but I don't think I really need to now that I have this.
Concrete Catwalk. Two coats, full sun, no topcoat. Lovely cool, dark grey creme. Much softer than stark black, but still edgy and fun.
Street Chic. Two coats, full sun, no topcoat. Nice neutral mushroomy taupe. Nothing groundbreaking here, but still a beautiful classic. For comparison, it's not as pink/purple as last spring's Below Deck, but more pink than OPI You Don't Know Jacques and Orly Prince Charming. I'll have to do a comp post w/photos soon.
I don't recall any application issues with these, other than that Skyscraper tended to be a bit blotchy for me. I love how shiny the cremes are!
