Cuticula-Grow A Pear (Base Coat & Top Coat)

Inspired by Lucille Ball. The scent is described as a blend of fizzy pop and fresh pears to give the amazing scent of sparkling pear. I could still smell it days after applying(even after numerous showers and hand washes) To me the pear scent was strong but in a good way! And I could also smell an undertone of something sweet almost like candy as well. The Timeless Fast Dry top coat is what is used over all of the polishes in this post :)
