I should have known better than to trust a $2 nail polish that claims to last up to ten days, but I've been really impressed with inexpensive nail polishes before (Sinful Colors anyone?) so I thought I'd give it a try. Sadly, this started chipping the very next day, mostly on my thumb and index finger. I wasn't even putting my hands through too major excursion, just some shopping. I applied as a base coat the Revlon Colorstay (the one that's been discontinued) and as a top coat Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat, which usually gives my long-lasting results if the polish is good. It applies okay; it's a thicker formula, so one thick coat gives nice opaque color, but if you like to apply in thin layers, it'll be streaky on the first coat and kind of hard to work with. I gave it two stars because it's a nice nude color (I also have the minty blue one but haven't worn it yet) and its dirt cheap, but I would not recommend this.
