I read so many positive reviews of this polish that there was no way that I couldn't try it! As an avid nail painter of my long natural nails, having them look nice really means a lot to me. I applied this gel polish on Tuesday of last week and today is Sunday. The polish has lasted and gone through my daily typing at work, golfing, 10+ rounds of beach volleyball, and just general wear and tear. My normal nail polish wouldn't have lasted 3 days on my shaped nails. The only chipping of the polish that was done was due to myself actually chipping my nails, and thus the polish with it. I do however have one thing negative. I read on another review that someone's polish began to have miniscule cracks in the polish all on the nail. I also am experiencing this, not on all colors or nails but just the teal colors(I tried to photograph this, but my camera couldn't focus enough on them). Overall, this polish really is amazing and I will probably be switching over completely from regular to this formula. Great great buy!
