Two coats. And messed up by my camera. It turns this one a bright red! It's not. It's a deeper medium cherry, cool toned red. The second photo has been slightly color corrected to show that.
But my initial plan was to get some use out of one of my Kleancolor glitters, namely Red-Hot. Coating it over a cool red might not have been the most ideal choice, but that's what I did.
Two coats of Red-Hot, but still, the glitter is rather sparse. I had expected a more wham pow sorta effect, because it looks really red-hot and massive in the bottle, but this is what you get. Also, the Kleancolor glitters have a rather thick, jellyish base, so the coats end up a little too thick to be able to dry decently. This shitty manicure was still soft when I left the apartment about half an hour later, and I got a lot of dangs and smudges here and there, which is the the reason why I never took some sunny photos later. Also, the small glitter is of course not black, but the same orange-y color as the larger hex particles. I don't know why my camera does this to some glitter, but it annoys me.
So, from me Red-Hot gets a big thumbs down, while I always, always favour a classic red creme, especially if it contains toluene and applies and dries like a queen! However, I just don't ...get the name. Again, I guess I'm just too Swedish. Kennebunk-port. Is it witty in some way? I haven't got a clue.
