I love the Complete Salon formula, I love the wide brush, I love the bottle, I love the little rubber ring on the cap. I have three others colors of this brand and I buy whatever I can find on clearance (not because I don't agree with the price point being a good value but because I'm just really poor). The wear is fantastic, the formula usually only needs two coats to not be streaky, and the drying time is excellent.
The only reason I've marked this as a not buy again is this particular color just isn't that great. It's sort of dull and lifeless, and even with a good top coat (I use Sally Hansen Mega Shine) it's got more of a satin finish that just doesn't 'pop'. The color has been discontinued, I think? If they were to make a similar color in the future I hope they make it brighter and more vibrant, and maybe I'd get it then. Bought this on clearance for $2 so I'm not heartbroken, just a little disappointed.

I love the color of this polish, the formula glides on smoothly and is easy to apply! The brush is wide so it does not leave excess brush marks in the polilsh as some brands can. They bottle is nothing special, but it is pleasing to they eye and very sturdy. It is a moderate price for a ds polish, but still worth buying and an absolute steal if you can find it on sale like I did. :) It has been on my toes with no top or base coat for a week now and has not chipped at all! I look forward to trying it on my nails and expect to get a good 3-4 chip free days out of it. I would recommend and buy again.

This polish looked beautiful when it was on.. Good opacity, nice creme finish, even lasted 5 days chip free. The problem arose when I went to remove it.. The teal shade stained my nails and fingertips!!!! I walked around for I think 2-3 days with Shrek-esque tips.. not cute. :( I was hesitant to try other shades from this line since. I'll gladly stick to my OPI any day. I apologize for the negative review !

I was surprised to see the reviews mostly saying this stained their nails! I did not get that after effect, and generally have no complaints. It chips after a few days but other then that I liked it. Stood out nicely against my NW15 skin. I am a fan of the brush, though for some it may take some getting used to. I felt it eased the application and I could do a couple strokes to cover my whole nail instead of a few quick ones with traditional brushes. I like the bottles on these, but I must agree it's a little pricier for a drugstore polish. I would repurchase.

I am always a super positive person and I have never written a negative review. I guess there is a first time for everything. I was so excited to try this after seeing it on a friend. I loved the brush and the color went on very nicely. The problem came the day I wanted to change colors. After removing the polish, all ten of my nails were stained teal. I mean really stained. I had to google search how to remedy stained nails. After soaking them in a bit of bleach and soapy water, and buffing my nails like crazy the color came off. The brand states that you don't need a base coat with this polish but I tried again (hopeful the basecoat would help) and it did not. This polish is now in the garbage :(

Gorgeous deep teal color that goes on nearly opaque and smoothly with no streaks. you can *almost* get away with 1 coat, but 2 thin coats make it perfect! the brush is flat, round-tipped, and even all around. it fits the shape of my nails and cuticle line perfectly. i wish all polish brands had this brush!

SH CSM #450 Fairy Teal is a beautiful teal creme.
It has the standard Insta-Dri/CSM and Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro brush where it is thick, wide, and oddly curved (not symmetrically on both sides). I'm not a fan of the brush, but I can work with it.
The color is a lovely green-based teal. It is bluer and dustier than LA Colors Color Craze- Atomic.
First time I wore this color (2 coats of base coat, 2 coats color, topcoat), it chipped in the first hour. I wrote it off as a bad application and redid a few nails over. With a topcoat, it lasted into day 2 before it started chipping badly.
Even with a base coat, this color stained terribly. Because of the staining, I'm probably not going to wear it very often. I've only worn it twice and it was a bit better if I put a layer of another color first.

Overall Rating: (5/5) I love the colour, love the pigmentation and the formula... and surprisingly, I love the brush too. It is big and it does dump a lot of product on your nail but you just need to learn how to use it. The brush is WIDE but it is ROUNDED which helps the application process as opposed to normal brushes that are thin and square at the tip. The rounded tip of this brush helps because it is rounded like your cuticle/nail bed area so it's easier to apply.
Price: (5/5) I don't really know about the price because I got this as a gift but if I payed for it, I'd honestly be happy with it. :)
Packaging Quality: (4/5) The bottle looks kind of unappealing and schintzy but I give it a 4 for the ergonamic brush design.
Buy Again: Yes and in other colors too.
EDIT: So after using this polish for the first time, it started chipping and I decided to remove it from my nails. IT LEFT HORRIBLE STAINS! I have never experienced this with any nail polish before, even with much darker colours. I still like the application and the payoff of the product, but seriously?!? My nails look like I'm dead!

This is a very pigmented teal. So pigmented that like others, my others nailbed and fingers got stained after application. It doesn't help that brush dumps A LOT of product on your nail. I really do like the color (which, after two THICK coats was the same color as the bottle.) The formula is nice and the brush is obviously expensive and took a lot of engineering to make. I appreciate the quality of this product and I think if you can get this brush to work for you, it's a great option. But ultimately, for me, I'd rather get a similar color by OPI or Essie that comes with a brush I know I can work with rather than relearn my application technique just for this one brand of nail polish.

I just love SH CSM polish. The best ds polish hands down. The brush is incredible. The formula is very pigmented and thick. Love it and the color. Great product.

Love the color, love the formula, wears very well. Is a little expensive for a drug store polish @ $8, but very worth it really. I rate it 4 out of 5 overall because it is perfect except that stupid over wide brush, just makes a mess on me.

This is a very pretty, medium deep turquoise/teal that is perfect for a summer (and summer-into-fall) pedicure. What impresses me most about this is the wear and the look; with only two coats, you get complete opacity and it wears like rock. It's also very glossy, and stays that way for days - even without a base coat or top coat. Great wide brush, too. Yes, SH Complete Salon polishes are higher priced than other drugstore brands, but the wear and ease of application gives OPI a run for its money, which is still a few dollars more.
