I bought this polish along with the Super Duper Top Coat and Protein Base Coat since Ulta had a buy 2, get one free sale on Essie products. I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try this brand. I chose Neo-Whimsical, a soft lilac creme. The application was smooth and easy, although it took about three coats for the polish to become more opaque. The color looked adorable on my nails and it didn't chip - probably because I used the base and top coat polishes, too. No wonder people like Essie so much. It's very good quality. I'll buy more colors once another sale comes up!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
