Sorry, couldn't help myself with the last photo. Three coats. Goes on a bit streaky, but it's manageable. I would never have made it with only two coats, though. Do you see the top photo? The little gleam of Swedish fall sun? That's pretty much all we get this time of year.
Then I thought of another pastel glitter polish I fell for, for similar reasons. One of those few exceptions I make for these colors. I thought: what if I combine the two..? Said and done. I added Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air on top. Two coats.
I actually did the layering during the day, but forgot to take photos of it, so flash was the only decent light I had access to when the idea of picking up the camera finally occured to me. Nevertheless, rather pretty. But dense. So many coats of pastel pigments. Like nail shields.
Swedish word of the day:
pastell -noun pastel
Just put the emphasis on the last syllable instead.
