I'm a Vinylux fan and own 19 colors including this one. The application is extremely streaky and unforgiving. It does not level out, shows every single imperfection in the nail bed, and chips. I can wear all the other colors for a week with only minor tip wear but this one chips the next day. It also never looks shiny even with two coats of the Vinylux top coat. I would imagine that it might work for nail art for tiny designs or accents but that's not my style so this one is going in the garbage. The application is nothing like all the others like Vexed Violet, Fedora, or Dark Lava which are beautiful.
