Laquerlicious Unity Pebble Stone Swatches & Review

Yesterday manicure was light and bright so today I decided to go with something nice and dark, Laquerlicious Unity Pebble Stone.  I picked this up recently when they had their free international shipping promotion.  As a Canadian, I can never pass up free shipping.  It's a rare occasion.  Pebble Stone is a black jelly base full of a variety of glitter.  Looking at my nails I can pick out black, blue, yellow, purple and silver but there could be more colours in there.

I used two coats to reach opacity.  Unfortunately the formula was a bit thick and application was quite finicky.  It dried quite rough and even after a coat of Gelous it wasn't completely smooth.

Pictures show two coats of Pebble Stone with one coat of Gelous in natural sunlight.  I love the colour of this polish but I'm a bit turned off by the formula.  I have tried other Laquerlicious Unity glitter polishes and they were much easier to apply so hopefully this problem is unique to this colour.  In the future I think that I will start out with a dark base colour and just add a single coat of Pebble Stone on top.  That should help with the rough finish.  When I last checked Pebble Stone was sold out and was slated to be discontinued but you can still get lots of other Laquerlicious Unity polishes from their Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/LaquerliciousUnity.  Check out the "last call clearance" section for some great sales prices.  Are you willing to put up with a not so great formula if you love the polish colour enough?
