It dries a little satiny, so you will definitely need top coat. The formula is good, no complaints there.
Such an awesome color. I should note that the brush is a bit different- it's kinda wide and flat, not nearly as big as the OPI Pro-Wide, but definitely bigger than say, a China Glaze or Essie brush. I'll show you how it compares in one of my next Contrary Polish posts. I quite like it, personally, and if you're a murky shimmer fan you definitely need to check these out.
Thanks for looking and commenting, and I hope you're having a great week!
