I bought this nail polish and used it the first day on someone else and it worked good, and it dried very fast. Their nails came out smooth and they looked nice. I used it on myself and my nails came out okay but I did learn that I had to paint them quickly because if the polish starts to dry and I bumped the polish even a little with the brush it would smear badly. Once you paint any on your nail, you can't try to add more polish to it until its completely dry because it's very gummy until its dried completely. I missed a tiny spot and tried to fix it by adding a dab of polish to the missed spot and it messed it up so bad I had to remove it all and do it over. The stuff on my nail suck to the brush pretty bad. It works much better if you aren't painting your own nails. I think the fast dry is what makes it turn gummy. I liked the hot pink color and I do use it for my toe nails, which I have much more luck painting with this polish. I probably won't buy anymore of this fast dry kind because it takes too much time to get them nice looking, due to having to repaint and having to be so careful. The polish is thick and kind of hard to work with. I like the brand, but not this brands fast dry products.
