Walmart is selling Essie now and I told my daughter I would buy a polish and try it out. It took a few coats to apply due to the fact the first coat is runny. Second coat was fine and this is really a pretty polish I just need to be more careful next time as it gets air bubbles easily if you ask me. I used Essie ridge filling basecoat, Essie Coat Azure and OPI top coat. Have a great week and peace be with you.
