The photo is of 2 coats of LT Cheerio under 1 coat of LT INC
I bought this to compare to O&J’s nail brightener, which I love. I would say the shimmer in O&J’s nail brightener is a little smaller, making it look more pearlescent and less sparkly. Also, the LT INC has a bit more pigment than the O&J nail brightener, which is sheerer.
The shimmer/shine effect of LT INC is so subtle that I will definitely try 2 coats next time! I would have this time but I already had 2 coats underneath and I was worried 4 coats of color would be too thick.
This manicure lasted 6 days I think before it started chipping, and I’m someone who is hard on their hands.
I can’t speak to any nail conditioning benefits, as I had LT lacquer on underneath.
Overall, I think I would recommend and repurchase LT INC to have something on hand that I know I can throw on for a quick manicure.
