Both of these colors to me just scream party, now when I say party I mean high school, college, concert or club type party, not for fancy events or cocktail party type events. Both of these colors need layers, for Connaught Square, I just applied two or three coats. However for Sloane Square I had to use a silvery base coat (OPI's Lucerne-Tainly look marvelous) for it to take full effect. Both polishes have lots of sparkles in them, which need cannot go without a topcoat because they dry kind of rough. If I were to recommend one of these to you guys I would definitely say Connaught Square the purple sparkles make the nail polish exciting and fun.
