Outdoors, 3 coats with 3 (I know you're cringing at this) coats of Seche Vite. It was so bumpy it drove me crazy I had to keep putting it on! In person this looked very opaque with no VNL, but all my pictures showed it and looked sheer. Well anyway I'm late showing you this but Atlantis is a sea-colored base with tons of small holographic glitter! I really do think this looks much better in person than I can show you here.
