If you like natural, neutral and slight mother-of-pearl colors and want to extend your no-chip manicure, as I like to do, then this is the polish for you. It is a little thick, but evens out. It fills in the new nail growth quite nicely. I like the wide brush for application.
The polish is prone to some bubbling if you put it on too thick, but it isn't a deal-breaker. I use Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear clear polish as a "base" coat (over my no-chip manicure) and top coat after applying about 2 coats of Smooth and Perfect (Dune 03). The top coat helps hide the little bubble problem. I tend to come back to Smooth and Perfect after trying other neutral color polishes.

Got this in 02 Linen. It is pretty sheer, but thats what I love about it. It looks very natural. It dries very quickly. Mine was thick or gloopy, was indeed smooth and applied smoothly with the brush.

I wanted to love this polish -- the colors are really pretty nudes and they don't chip quickly. However, the formula is so gloopy! I thinned it out a little bit and it was STILL gloopy. I am particular about nail polish, but I expected better from Sally Hansen, especially for a polish called "Smooth and Perfect." I do like how wide the brush is, though. And if you can get it applied well Dune is a perfect blush pink. I just won't be buying again.

This nail polish is one of the WORST nail polishes I have ever purchased. I bought the shade "Sea" expecting it to be a nice sort of minty colour.... was I ever wrong. This color came out sheer/white and I had to do 4 coats to get even a hint of the colour. The drying time is extremely long and since you need to do so many coats that can be annoying and time consuming. Overall this was a waste of money.

I love the opaque look. I do not like LOUD nail-polishes. I'm sort of a tomboy and this works great! It gives me the "girly" look I want, but not too girly! I have 06-Air and I am not complaining!

I have tried the "Satin 04" color. I love the color, it's very nice to wear to work. Just like with most drug store nail polish, you have to apply 3 layers for the color to come through like it's supposed to and for it to be even and consistent. I really don't understand why they can't make light colors more pigmented. Anyway, you do need many coats and you have to wait a long time between coats. I waited 15-20 minutes between each coat (3 of them) and then added a clear top coat and waited another 20 minutes. It seems dry but if you, for example, put your hand between your head and pillow at night, the nails get a texture on them from your hair or pillow. It's very gooey and doesn't get rock hard. After they nails get dinged, the shine goes away also. The top coat (also sally) didn't help at all. Not only that, but little bubbles appear on some nails! I would not purchase again.

I like this is. Its not a must have but to layer under glitter its pretty nice. I like how thin and buildable it is so it doesn't look like i have a ton of nail polish on when I apply my glitter on top.

I don't have much to add. It is thick and gloopy, but you need to apply lots of coats (I have Air and Fog and with two coats it is still sheer). The colors are beautiful but it really is a waste of money. I bought it on sale (but still pricey) and i am disappointed with it.
e.t.a once it does dry, which takes forever, it dries really really hard which is nice.

i bought this in the color sea. I thought it would be a perfect pastel light minty color, something i didn't own in my nailpolish collection. I love painting my nails and when i bought this recently at Walgreens on clearance i was very happy. I don't spend alot of money on nailpolish and getting more brand name nailpolishes on clearance is great. I applied it today and it is so sheer even after three coats my nails look sheer white lol. It doesn't even look like a minty green color. It was goopey and too thick, it was hard to apply. Overall i'm glad i got it on clearance ($3.50) but i would never buy full price. I will not repurchase. A cheaper alternative is the sally hansen hard as nails, although it doesn't have the benefits of the smooth and perfect nailpolish, it is so much better and not streaky AND cheaper.

I bought Fog, which is a gorgeous sheer, millky white. For the color alone, I would rate it a 5, HOWEVER, applying this was an absolute nightmare. The formula was extremely goopy and thick and tended to bubble up. It took me, literally, 3 coats to reach a somewhat opaque/sheer look. This polish will only look "smooth & perfect" if you can apply nail polish flawlessly. I don't recommend this because there are other soft pastel colors you can get with better quality.
