I used 2 super easy coats, 1 coat was really opaque. The pro-wide brush made application even easier (but the shape of the brush meant I couldn't paint closer to my cuticles, rounder cuticles beware?). The texture happened pretty quickly and though it takes slightly longer to dry properly I find that the manicure lasts longer (5 days currently and only a tiny bit of tip wear)

Also I'm really liking the texture, it's not very rough at all, think a rough glitter and that's really it. I'm one of those people who enjoys feeling the texture. So I'm liking the sparkly textures (if you couldn't tell), I don't think I'll buy any of the creme textures though. They kind of look like lumpy nail polish, I could like it but I won't be finding out anytime soon.
I've always been on board with textures, I'm use to not smooth manicures due to my topcoat abandonment (which is over now since I found the perfect topcoat). I haven't topcoated Jinx cause I want to enjoy the texture (which I am) but I will eventually. Now I'm even more on board with textures considering how amazing Jinx is. I also really like the colour and think it somewhat suits me nicely.

Thank you very much for reading this rambly post but boy I am so glad textures are a thing this year. Have a great day!! :D
P.S. I know I wrote sparkle/sparkly a lot
