I would buy again but it depends on the color. I'd avoid lighter shades as the 3 I brought were gluggy and streaky, and so sticky they took 20 minutes to dry. But I really enjoyed Ever Young #114,...

This is a nice polish but it chips really fast on my hands so I'm using it on my toes instead and it stays forever. Easy to apply, only one coat needed even for the larger nails, good big wand,...

I heard this polish well-hyped up so I purchased the lightest beige color "Dream On" along with the brands' base and top coat. I did not find that this polish lasted very long at all. Mine...

I bought the base coat and the top coat, and this polish lasted all of one day--I wasn't washing dishes or working in the yard, so I don't know why the staying power was so atrocious

I was intrigued by these nail-polishes as my hair-dresser uses them and they look amazing on her. However, she is very good at applying make-up etc whereas I am rather clumsy. I found the...

The nail polish range is great. Doesn't last as long on my nails because I work with my hands alot but with a top coat it lasts longer. But on my toes - it just sticks. I change it every week just...
