Robin is a creme polish and they can sometimes be hard to put on because they can look streaky and show every little imperfection in the nail. I was a little disappointed in this one because it was thick and sticky though. It takes me awhile to polish my nails because my right hand shakes intermittently (a residual symptom of the stoke I had last year). But even without that, it would of taken me awhile. I was worried they weren't going to work out at one coat,...

...but my worry lessened at two coats...

Honestly, if I hadn't been planning to put glitter over it, they would have looked horrible! But that is what I was planning, a coat of silver glitter before the top coat to finish this look.
I used OPI's Nail Envy as a based coat and their Top Coat. Julep Maven's Robin and Essie's Set in Stone is the silver glitter. I also used OPI's Drip Dry to dry my nails. (I forgot I had it and it popped its little head up the other day.) Its great! It dries your nails to the touch in a few minutes.
I am usually partial to pink polishes, but this one struck me as really beautiful. What color(s) of polish are your favorite?
