Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad It definetly did its job. Ths is my first essie polish and I approve. Sure it is a bit pricey, but there is one weird thing about it that I found peculiar. It was very thin. It was much thinner than all my nail polishes. I am not complaing about that though. It allows a thin even coat, so now the layers of nailpolish won't build up on your nail. But you could buy other base coats if the money is too much. It works as well as others, but i would buy it for the thin consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please don't change a thing!!! I bought this on a whim because I had problems with my manicure lasting just a day or two. I am glad to say that it lasts a full 7 days, no matter which polish I use.
