As base polish I used Misa - Catch A Flick. Then I don't quite remember if I put on one or two coats of Theoretical Vegan. I remember I didn't put on top coat though. That gives it a matte look.
Theoretical Vegan has a light green base that is on the sheer side and green, gold and black glitter. It is very pretty, I like it very much. And of course, black cat on the bottle. Awesome.
Nothing wrong with the formula either. I am starting to like Vivid Lacquer quite a bit! I want more.
