For application, try the 3 line technique: First wipe off the brush at the bottleneck of the nail varnish bottle; the brush must be covered evenly with product and must not drip. The first line of nail varnish is applied in the middle of the nail, from the cuticle to the nail top, in a long, soft line. The second line goes on one side of the nail and the third line on the other side. This guarantees even distribution of the shade. Additional layers may be applied to suit coverage desired.

Rich egg yolk
If you haven't, like me, tried the rubber finishes before note that they are very thick. You will want more on your brush so you can do a thicker coat rather and avoid streaking rather than 2 thin ones like with standard polishes. The yellow is deeper than it shows, it's less true yellow and more happy chicken deep into orange yellow. This is no gamma but it's not a sunshine type yellow either.

Lovely finish, not yellow though..
I brought the colour Serenity and loved the rubber finish so brought this one too. It's more orange than bright yellow but still a lovely finish! Bit streakier than others but still lasted ages on my nails (at least 5 days without chipping!) Very pleased with this colour for this price!

lovely colour but not yellow
I ordered this nail polish, Optimist, which I expected to be a lovely yellow colour, and actually got a very orange nail polish. It's still a nice colour, and applies very well, but the colour is in no way yellow, unfortunately.

Optimist is almost perfect!
I LOVE Illamsaque's nail varnishes, but this one isn't the best. The drying time is ok (not as fast as some of the other rubber finish colors), but the polish is really streaky. I might've gotten a bad bottle. The color, however, is absofuckinglutely gorgeous and very unique. The color is definitely worth the streakiness.
