Both colors are gorgeous! They each took 2 coats. Including my China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat and my Beauty Secrets Top Coat, 4 layers in all and my nails still dried quickly. Now that I've mentioned my base & top coats.... LOVE. I stumbled upon each at Sally's Beauty Supply. They work amazing. I love that my base coat has added days to my manicure and my top coat is very shiny and seems to resist chipping also. I usually change my polish before the manicure is ruined so I can say I get at least 4 days from a manicure and with some polishes (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro Nail Lacquer), as many as 10! This is becoming quite the run-on post... The Rimmel polish, I love the stuff! However they have limited selection in colors. To be fair, the website says 32 shades, what I have access to here in London (Canada) seems to be a lot less.
