        I bought this for my daughter because she fell in love with the color. The same night i did her nails she took a bath and came out the tub with half of her nail polish gone. She was upset and didn't understand how that could have happened. I was shocked too.

            Polish goes on smooth and dries glossy but it does chip after a few days. I think the only way to prevent this is to have acrylics. But the polish is reasonably priced and the color selection is good.

              SUCH a great polish! Received many compliments on the color. My nail polish usually chips within 2-3 days, and this polish lasted me 6 days before chipping! Very shiny and really does look/feel like a salon gel manicure.

                Love this polish. I have been wearing it for 24 hours and it looks fresh and new. I am rough on my nails and hate the look of chipped polish but this stuff is awesome. It has stood up to washing dishes with no gloves on, making supper. Office work and general clean up.
                I used the base coat and colour only and have issues so far.
