I am very disappointed with this set because I usually love the Deborah Lippmann products. The base coat doesn't seem to adhere to the nail, so it basically makes a peel-off layer below the nail color. The top coat does not last any longer than my usual top coat--I still get chips within 24 hours of applying. The two products combined means that the polish peels off in large chunks rather than little chips. I tried the top coat alone and it still gets chips within 24 hours, but at least they are small little nicks and not big chunks.
