doesn't last!

I didn't even read the other reviews until after I received it. All three go on nice and look really nice, but my entire nail polish peeled off in one sheet after using it one day later. I tried it again making sure that I had clean, roughed up nails too, and it still didn't stick. I'm glad I used points, not cash to buy this. Major disappointment.

Great

The polish stays on for weeks and doesn't chip easily. It also has a nice shine to it! I would definitely use it again!

Love These, Wish They were bigger bottles
Purchased

I love the top and matte coat polishes in this pack. As someone who paints their nails often, I wish the bottles were bigger.

The base coat goes on nicely, but I found that it makes my polish peel off sooner instead of the intended affect of having it keep polish on for longer.

Does a good job
Purchased

It's a base, top coat and matte nail polish and does the job as intended. I will say, for $24.00 I expected full size bottles. I would return it, but it's too much trouble.

Some Good, Some Appallingly Bad
Purchased

I really like the Matte Coat and the Base Coat. However, the Varnish Top Coat peels off within a day - and I mean peels off in sheets, not just chips off at the tips. I have tried it twice with the same awful result.

Used numerous times...

Yet I still can't decide if these are horrible or just run-of-the-mill. Nothing against Ruffian (I love their colored nail lacquers!), but this triplet of coats peels just as easily as any OPI or Drug Store brand ensemble. I'm guessing that's the norm, so I give this product 3 stars. The only way it doesn't peel is by applying sans the Gesso Base Coat. It's nothing special, just normal.

Great set

It's so convenient to order as a whole set, I must say that I am now addicted to the matte look
