have you tried layering the shellac?  I personally like one coat of beau, as a base, with one coat of romantique over top.

I splurged a really good quality nail polish (Chanel’s “Ballerina”) and I have found that two coats of it goes on extraordinarily smooth and looks great without needing more coats.

@frogprincess:  I know what you mean. Try Essie or OPI brand nail polish.  A base coat usually helps. Apply two thin coats and yo should be all set. A clear fast dry top coat is good too

I actually have that color of sally hansen insta dry- its great.  With that brand it takes me two coats to get even coverage, with about 10 minutes between coats. The only problem I find is after about 3 or 4 uses, while the bottle still has polish in it, its no longer the right consistancy o go on smoothly.  I usually end up tossing the polish and starting a new one at that point.  

In general each brand is different in how many coats you need/how smooth it is, but I definitly find after its been open for a while it gets harder and harder to use.
