I used a base of Duri Rejuvacote, 2 coats of polish and a top of CND Air Dry. I didn't have any issues with formula or the brush itself.
In the sun you can see how well this polish applied. While it's not a true metallic, it's also not a pearl even though there's a bit of streaks.
In my first shade picture, you can see it's not quite orange, not quite red. It reminds me a bit of China Glaze Street Racing (which also is staring at me from my untrieds) but I think this is more orange.
This is also a shade color but just different overhead coverage. I really do like this color quite a bit, and wonder how more of these colors would look!
Finally, indoors with the flash and it is pretty red hot! I am definitely happy with this polish and would like to purchase some in the future.
