The application of this nail varnish was amazingly easy. I managed to get a very even coating of nail polish without touching the sides of my fingers and getting it everywhere. The Colour pay off again was very good. One coat gave a very thorough even coat and then I applied a second coat to make it look even more polished. The outcome was a gorgeous mid - dark bright blue. I applied a top coat and would guess I would have got around 4 - 5 days wear from this without signs of flaking or chipping but I only had this on for 2 days before I re-painted.
