Ocean has an ocean blue (do you see what I did there?) jelly base loaded with scattered holographic particles. Since the base is a jelly, it is a bit sheer, so this is three coats. When I first started this manicure, I had one coat on my nails and thought "this is going to be too sheer, I won't like it" but it built up very nicely and in three coats I had both opacity, and a gorgeous depth that wouldn't be possible with an opaque base. I have worn for 4-5 days without any sign of chips or wear, and I didn't haven't had any issues staining.
I can't even describe to you how much I love this nail polish. The color is absolutely perfect, it's the bright blue of clear ocean water. It reminds me of looking into the water around Hawaii. Also, piCture pOlish scattered holographic polishes always have the most beautiful sparkle! I may have gotten a bit carried away with the photographs (what can I say, I'm in love) but I also had fun with some seashells, a perfect match for Ocean!
I absolutely adore this polish. I've worn Ocean 3 times since I purchased it a little over a month ago, and that's saying something for me! It's such a bright beautiful summer blue, and so flattering!
