This nail polish brush is small which helps you get a clean application. The colour is very opaque and one coat is all you need, however, you can add a second coat if you want a more even, deep coverage. It’s very quick drying and glossy which is amazing especially when you’re in a hurry. Even though I did not apply a top coat, the nail polish still looked glossy and beautiful. It did last for about 4 days before starting to chip which is one of the things I love about this nail polish.
