I bought this color to compliment a dress I was wearing to a wedding. First of all, I dont normally buy Essie because its a little more expensive than other drug store brands and I buy quite alot of polish. After I was done, it reminded me that u get what u pay for! The 1st coat went on with just 3 strokes of the brush on each nail. And looked fabulous! The chrome color looked sleek, like a glossy mirror, glitter free. It was funky yet appropriate to wear anywhere. I was running late, so I skipped the top coat. 3 days later it still looked freshly painted. Highly recommend!!
