I loved the shade of this nail polish and had to apply two coats for the true rich colour to show through, but I was pleased with the end result and it’s a great shade for winter. Although I think the new maxi brush is great (the flat design of the brush is easier to use when applying), it is bold to say it’s mistake free. I had to be careful when applying not to paint my fingertips! The lasting effect of this polish was around four days before it started chipping, but I think if I had to apply a top coat it would have stayed on for longer. Overall I enjoyed using this product, but would recommend painting a top coat over the polish.
