  • Very good

    I am using with Smith and Cult nail polish. The polish stays on several days with no chipping. Easy to remove with acetone polish remover.

  • Great product..

    Pleased with all their products, EXCEPT the crazy bashed in lids!! I have read that they help to control the bottle when opening and applying polish.....they ruin the whole look of a beautiful nail polish bottle. Hundreds of nail polishes do not need to bash in their lids!!! The dents are not even consistent bottle to bottle which makes them look like they HAVE been damaged. Many people question these dents....I add myself to the growing cry to get rid of the dents so we can display these pretty bottles.

    This is hands down the best nail polish product I have ever used! It's BETTER than shellac. Goes on like a dream. Quick drying. Lasts 7 - 10 days, much longer than most of my professional shellac applications. I ordered LOTS!!! More than $100 in nail polish - but I can do this myself and look BETTER and last LONGER than any walk-in salon. DONE with that hassle! Smith & Cult FOREVER!!!

    Very shiny goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I had the top coat on for less than a minute and bumped by nails and thought OH NO..but no nicks or damage done..the nails were dry!!! Three days now and no peeling or chips or fading. I love the bottles and the cap. At first I thought the cap was damaged, but then realized it was made that way to help you hold while applying..How Cute!! I have a set of polish on backorder and can hardly wait to get them..I thing they will be great with this base and top coat.
