i got this color for Christmas (well, i picked it out a few days before) after having a little freakout at Sephora because i forgot they carried Illamasqua now, and i love it! this probably isn't the best picture since the sun went into hiding, but i think it's pretty accurate. the color reminds me of a very clear, bright sky.
this is just one coat! there was slight VNL in certain lighting at certain angles, but i hardly noticed it. it went on very smoothly, although the brush holds a lot of polish so it took me a couple nails to figure out how much to use. i also liked that you could easily pull the cap off, so you can paint with a normal circular cap.
