Love love love it. Even though it showed the ridges I missed (and I mean they stood out like a billboard)....I still love it. Easy to apply, good shine and a top coat didnt hurt it at all. Lasted several days with no signs of wear and tear.
It is a gorgeous polish and is very true to it's name. A lovely, shiny metallic color, just as the bottle says. The only problem is it takes a bit of practice to use it properly. It shows every little streak and I found it chipped easily despite a top coat. A bonus though is no base coat needed like some other brands of polish.
It worked well for me, but as expected it will have streak marks on it since it's soo metallic. I had to fill my nails beforehand or the metallic shine would pick up every imperfection! Pretty colour though!
One coat did the trick. I have acrylic nails so the surface is very smooth, therefore no imperfections! This polish looked like chrome and was very striking. I loved it but it's not for every day, in my opinion. Save it for a party!
