Out of the entire Pirates collection Steady As She Rose was the thickest formula for me. It was not difficult to work with like most pastel polishes though.
I really love this light pink, it has a bit of a lavender tone to me, somewhere close to Lucky Lucky Lavender maybe? I would love to compare those two but my LLL is with my mother, although I know it has that usual streaky pastel formula. That is probably why I do not wear it much. Steady As She Rose will be getting plenty of use especially with the great application.
I used two thin coats, it covered fantastically and dried quick.
With Silver Shatter I love this color even more. The light pink under the silver I think looks very interesting. I really like this combo! Picture is with topcoat.
Just my piece of advice on the Shatters, some have been saying they have dried up quickly so every few times I use mine I add a couple of drops of thinner and gently roll it until mixed well.
