This is my favorite nail polish ever!! It has everything I want in a polish. It's opaque after one coat, fast drying, not streaky, and really beautiful. It can be a little hard to apply since it's so fast drying, but if you work quickly it should be fine. I'd recommend a good base coat with this one. Like most essie polishes, it's long lasting, but obviously this will vary depending on your top/base coat and how often you work with your hands. If you're looking for a silver, you can't go wrong with this one.
