I have been a dedicated Essie/OPI girl until I tried Zoya polishes a short time ago. What I've noticed is that while you always need a minimum of two coats with nearly all of these polishes, they seem to chip significantly less easily. On me, my Essie polishes will begin chipping within two or three days of application, even with a good top coat like Seche Vite. The Zoya polishes I have tried have all made it to the five day mark with very minimal chipping, if any at all. If you haven't given this brand a try I say go for it!
