3 coats with a coat of SV. I was never interested in this because I enjoyed Mr. Wrong tremendously. I know Mr. Wrong wasn't a dupe but it had the simliar golden shimmer effect and I liked how it sparkled. I went to CVS and this was 50% off lol so I snagged the last one. I wore this for 6 days and finally got a chip on day 6, that is pretty good! Opulent Cloud grew on me, I would like to try this layered over other colors!
