I started out with a "clean slate" and used Cult Nails Tempest. This is an amazing white that Maria created. If you do it right it can be a one coater, it's also self leveling so you don't get those nasty streaks. I always do 2 coats just because sometimes I'm a little shaky and I like that second coat to smooth things out for me. Since I was in a hurry I added a topcoat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast fast dry topcoat. This stuff is awesome and I'm sad I'm almost out and can't place an order yet. :(
I wore this beautiful white as is for a couple days, nice and crisp and clean. But then after a couple days I was getting the itch to add to it, unfortunately I was at my Mom's out of town and didn't have my mani supplies with me so I dug around in her stuff to see what I could find.

I have to say that the formula on this rosy/mauve nude was amazing! It went on smooth with no streaks or gloops. It dried fairly quickly and had a nice shine on it's own.
You can find out more information about Morgan Taylor products here on their site. Normally on any kind of beauty supply stores that carry Morgan Taylor products require you to have a cosmetology license but if you google there are a couple ways to purchase them if you don't have a license, Amazon is one of them.

Let's get on with it.....
I used 2 coats and no topcoat for these pics.
I'm not really a yellow person but I like the pastel shade of this with the slight shimmer. It actually looks good with my skin tone.
I used 2 coats of color and no topcoat for these pics.
I am new to Morgan Taylor polishes so I wasn't sure what to expect with them. I love them! I think that their formula is great, nice and smooth. The only one I had a little streaking with was Ahead of the Game but I have noticed that with just about every yellow I've tried, no matter what the brand is. For me it all smoothed out with the second coat though so that was nice. I would say dry time was pretty average. I wanted to show you all these without a topcoat so that you could see just how much shine they have on their own. I always add a topcoat later even if they are shiny because I want the added protection.
I've been wearing this mani for a few days now and have very minimal tip wear and I type on a computer all day long for work so this is good. No chips to speak of either. Overall I am very impressed with Morgan Taylor and hopefully will be able to get my hands on more of their polishes.
