@ 1-week so far, great! Love the new CND brushes, they make application super smooth & easy, you can practically coat the entire nail in just 1 stroke. Formula is smooth and fills in ridges better than the original base coat. As of writing this, it's only been on my nails 1-week so I can't yet attest to the 3-week wear claim, nor am I able to comment on the removal. But at 1 -week of not being particularly careful of my manicure, no chipping nor lifting.
