2 coats. Not only an oldie but goodie, but also an oldie but goodie formula. Of course, not exactly manufactured yesterday, so it had evaporated a bit, but it was still manageable without thinning. No sun this day, which explains the less focused photos, but usually absence of sun doesn't matter when it comes to duochromes, because they photograph better in the shade.
Some additional shots, because this polish deserves it.
It's a before tried, but winning concept: purple to green duochrome. What more can I ask for? Green and purple are perhaps my two favourite polish shades, add duochrome to that and you have a lacquer right up the alizarine alley. I'm not crazy about the finish, but I'd forgive a good duochrome anything.
I first saw this particular one at Acetone and Old Lacquer, which is a great blog I think you should all check out, and the mere sight of it created such immense immediate lemmings that I had to open up a new tab in the browser for ebay - I scored. Within five minutes. This is the impact Bruno at Acetone and Old Lacquer has on you.
