Ocean View is one of the newer Xtreme Wear shades and I believe this is the first time I've used anything from the XTreme Wear line. I was surprised to find that the brush and stem were both fairly flat and it actually made the application very precise and easy. These components aren't as wide as the ones found on the Insta-Dri polishes and the brush is cut straight across, rather than tapered. I'd have to say that I prefer this combination over the Insta-Dri brush and stem. Ocean View is a lovely shade of turquoise shimmer that applied nicely in 3 thin coats. 2 coats would have sufficed, but I went with 3, just to be sure. This shade appears to have a blackened base, which I love. I picked up several of these polishes back in June, and after the ease of application, I'm looking forward to trying the rest of them.
