Hidden Treasure greatness. I loved this color in the bottle. On... not so much. This is 3 coats of Sally Hansen Sea and Be Seen with 2 coats Seche Vite. It's fairly sheer and probably could have used a 4th coat, but I didn't think it was worth it. Application was pretty good, I like the wide short brush. In the bottle, there are flashes of green and purple along with the blue. But on, I saw virtually none of that. I looked at it in all kinds of different lighting and blah. It's just a blah blue. It's kind of on the icy side too, which is more wintery than summery. I'm not sure if it was the icy quality or the tone itself, but I just did not like this color. I only left it on a couple days, I couldn't stand it. I think it would have been better with a base of an opaque blue, but even still, I didn't get all the pretty colors that I see in the bottle. Anyone else have this issue?
