Loved the color, but did not love the hue of blue it left my nails after removing. I usually don't take the time to apply a base coat, although I know I should. That being said, I usually don't have a problem with my nails becoming stained. This polish left my nails a sickly color! I rubbed and rubbed with nail polish remover and it still took a few days and showers to completely get rid of the color. If you use it, just be sure to use a good base coat!
