This nail polish is a gorgeous Summer color (bright coral) but that's just about all it has going for it. The formula comes off super gloppy and uneven (even using a base coat or ridge filler). You have to apply several thick layers in order to achieve an even coat, which is very wasteful in my opinion. It takes longer than other formulas to dry (probably because of the large amount of product needed) but if you manage to execute this perfectly the nail polish has decent staying power (3-7 days) before it starts chipping. The formula doesn't plump up to gel proportions but is shinier than most polishes.
