It's my first time trying this nail polish. The first coat of polish was thick and streaky, so I decided to use a base coat with the rest of my nails. The rest of the application went on with a much smoother glide, but it definitely needed two coats to get the streaks out. Also, I'm getting lots of bubbles because I have to go over the application a couple of times before getting it over the entire nail. Not completely thrilled with the consistency. Tomorrow I am going to the spa, and if it doesn't chip, maybe I'll change my mind. For now, it's not my favorite brand.
