I was very happy with the application of the polish, it came on smoothly and I only needed two coats. I finished off the polish with my favorite top coat, Seche Vite and I was a happy camper. The polish did chip after about 3-4 days, but I was not upset because I was expecting it to chip sooner. I painted several of my friend's nails and I can vouch for the fact that's it's a universally flattering shade. All in all, I'm happy with this polish!
