I didn't really feel like painting my nails yesterday, but today I did. I've got so many untried Zoyas & I really wanted to put on Apple, but I'm expecting to get Bevin, Skylar & Kimmy in the mail tomorrow & I know I'm going to want to wear Bevin this weekend (if not sooner) so I didn't want to put on another green so I grabbed Penny. I love this color--it went on like a dream, had a fast drying time & is just wonderful. I'm not really a gold person, but I've been loving copper for awhile & Penny is the perfect copper color. I did 2 thin coats on all of my nails except my left thumb I just did 1 thicker coat (didn't mean to, my cat scared me, lol. I don't think you can tell any difference though), all over 1 coat of L.A. Colors basecoat topcoat.
