Seriously, soooo pretty! This only took 1 (!) coat to opaque, though I did use a very light second coat just to ensure that I didn't have any unseen bare patches once I took pics. It took about 2 minutes for things to be "dry" to the touch, about 15-20 before I could really do pretty much anything. I've had one of the Milani Quick Dry colors on my toes for about 5 days now without any issues, so far so good!
