Essie lady like – 2 coats
Essie absolutely shore – 4 coats
Essie st lucia lilac – 4 coats
Essie borrowed & blue – 4 coats
Essie eternal optimist – 2 coats
The two pink shades are much easier to apply than the other three. I don’t like mauve that much but I got both bottles in a lot from EBay. Lady like is opaque in just 1 coat but I did 2 just to be sure. The 3 shades in the middle are very streaky. I have to apply 4 coats just so I won’t have any visible nail lines.
