Stunningly mediocre. There are several d/s brands that outperform this. It just doesn't provide a nice smooth surface. It goes on a bit thin and seems to vanish unless you either goop it on or layer it 3x. It also dries very sloooowly. I don't have the patience to apply 3 coats of base coat and wait for it to dry 20+ minutes before even getting to the nail polish. Fooey!
