I am really pleased with this nail polish. It went on smoothly and I only needed two coats. It was a real treat to get to skip a base coat and a top coat. It looks like it has a beautiful top coat because the finish as a high gloss. In indoor, warm lighting I found that the gloss can sometimes have a black green hue, not necessarily a bad thing. I have found the polish to be chip resistant, more so than most brands. The only feature I did not love was the applicator brush. The ends were bristly and uneven. I prefer a smooth end on the bristles because it makes it so much easier to get the polish evenly on the bottom of the nail.
