Color is to die for; very tasteful neutral gray with a nice hit of mauve to keep it from being boring. It is a bit tricky to get it to go on smoothly and I had to clean it off the edges of several cuticles. It's easy to have it to on too thick and have it be a bit messy, or too thin and have to do a third coat. Most nails turned out nicely with only two coats and only the pinky of my off-hand has marks I'm a little dissatisfied with. Aside from that, the brush marks all vanished when the polish dried. Dries quickly.
The thick brush is, so to speak, a double-edged sword; it makes it easier to cover the whole nail quickly but it also makes it hard to touch up the edges without getting polish on your cuticles. I haven't painted my nails in a while so I may just need a little practice - actually, it looks pretty good considering how long it's been since I did this. So factor that when considering my complaints about application - if yr used to this brush, probably you won't have any trouble as the texture is very consistent.
Considering I paid less than $3 for this on sale I'm definitely pleased. It looks like a much more expensive polish. Bought this on positive recommendations from other MUA reviews and am dead keen on the color. Just hope I get good wear out of it, as other MUAs have reported!
