First and foremost, my nail polish has been on for two weeks (and I'm not easy on manicures), and is barely chipped. This topcoat does take a while to dry and is easy to mess up with dents, fingerprints, or random textures off of surfaces you may touch accidentally during that time. It's also not quite as high gloss as I'd hoped for, which could have to do with the previous point, however. To keep my nails going two weeks, I added another coat of top coat after the first week. For the first time in a while, I think I may have to strip them down because I'm bored with the color, not because it's so chipped up it's no longer appropriate for going out in public. As with the other Ruffian nail products I've tried, I do think the design of the cap makes it easier to control, so there's not as much polish that ends up where I didn't want it to.
