To do this mani, I started with two coats of China Glaze Purple Panic. This is a neon, with a slight shimmer in it - and it dries matte. The color is pretty, but I had a hard time with the application on this polish. I put on two coats and it was just so lumpy and streaky, I really didn't think a third coat would help. I put a coat of Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat on it, and it helped smooth it out a little bit. Then, when the polish was no longer tacky, I used a make up sponge and dipped it into China Glaze OMG and lightly sponged it on top. I didn't put on a top coat on it because I thought it may dimish the beautiful holo of OMG.
