                    I usually don't care about beauty products and think they're all the same, but this stuff is legit. I borrowed it from my mom the first time, and used it without the top coat because I didn't realize it was a special kind of polish. The first week it didn't chip AT ALL, even without the top coat. The second week it has a few nicks that were mostly my fault for picking at my fingers, but even then the imperfections weren't visible to random people who probably aren't staring at my hands. Overall I had it on for 6 weeks, and even then it was not that bad- really it was just where my nails had grown out, and some damage at the tips because I'm neurotic and pick at everything.
                    Freakin' amazing, awesome for lazy people like me who don't have a good routine of taking off old nail polish. Also they have great colors! I'm gonna get one for every season :)

                      I bought one of the shades to try the "gel" effect and omg, it is so beautiful. I used a regular Seche Vite topcoat with the polish and it made my nails look soo glossy! Lasted about 10 days and only then did it start to chip. Definitely buying a few more colors.
