answer 1
Apply color directly over the cured base coat. Only use the cleanser on the cured top coat to finish the entire process.

Question
Is this product buildable, or only meant for one coat?
I want to build strength and thickness, and I can't do it with the color, as I'm planning on using a semi-transparent french pink. Would it be better to apply several coats of base coat, then color and top coat, or instead do one base, then color, then several top coats? Has anyone tried it?

Hi, I did a pale pink french for my first time, using "bare to be different" gelshine color, and the base and top coat. I used 1 base coat, and 3 layers of gelshine color, and then 1 top coat. It worked perfectly.
Bare to be Different was very very light, almost clear, so that's the only reason why I used 3 coats, because I wanted that light light pink/nude sheer color to be slightly visable.
