The first factor to know would be the fundamental differences between LuxeCoat and using it. However, I am not really a gel polish fan coz it lasts up to 14 days, honestly who likes polish sticking to your grown nails! It's not a gel polish manicure which everyone these days raves about. After trying it on its own, I layered Flawless over Pretty in Pink, which is so pretty. The next shade I've tried is Pretty in Pink. This is the best holo-glitter polish I've ever worn. The formula for Red Hot is good, but it ends up applying slightly thick, so you must use extremely thin coats when using this polish.
