Nail File -- MAC Mischievous Mint

I was lucky enough to grab the last bottle of MAC Mischievous Mint (from their Quite Cute Collection) at my local boutique. I don't own anything like it, but thought it was such a refreshingly bright color that I had to have it! Mischievous Mint is a slightly lighter than turquoise, milky aqua blue. It's extremely eye-catching, but despite the unique color, I was quite dissatisfied by the polish formula. The first coat looked absolutely dreadful and although coverage improved drastically by the third coat, it looked like it could use a fourth. Upon closer inspection, I could still see streaks and coverage was still not fully opaque. Now, I'm on the hunt for a similar color with a better formula...
