Originally I bought it for a nail art design...but it wasn't long before I just wore it as a full nail color. And I LOVE the way white looks.
This polish has a lot of shine (as the name implies) but unless I have a good top coat on I'm lucky to make it to the end of the day without a chip.
It's not the easiest polish formula I have ever used. It's streaky and thick. It takes about three coats before I'm satisfied. I heard whites can be a little fussy anyway.
