^ Two coats. No problems with the formula at all. From my experience, it is really rare to have an issue with the formula of a Chanel polish. That's another difference between this and the MAC polish, the MAC one was all kinds of streaky (I always seem to have issues with application on MAC polishes). I found Peppermint Patty btw, so when I take this off and swatch Jade Rose, I'll also compare Jade to Peppermint Patty.
