This polish dries to a glossy finish. If you'd like to smooth over your watermelon seeds, a coat of Gelous or some other thick glossy topcoat will smooth everything over. The first two nail pictures show the polish on its own, the last picture has been topped with Gelous. This polish covers well in just one coat, use 2 to obliterate VNL.
The nail wheel shows from left to right one coat, two coats, and finally one coat of Watermelon Splash over one coat of China Glaze Strawberry Fields. You can see that it's a great layering polish too!
This is a full size, .5 oz bottle.
