I painted my nails on Sunday, and by Thursday, they are still practically perfect. This is nothing short of a miracle on my hands, as they've had to put up with dish washing, ukulele playing, running errands, countless hours of typing, and other all-out assaults. There are a couple of nicks here and there, but overall, this polish stays put.
When applying this polish, it seems to stay in the "tacky" phase a little longer than others, but when it sets--it's set. So try painting them while watching TV or doing something where you won't have to move too much while they dry. I used just two coats and no topcoat, and it still has lasted a long time.
This polish is pretty gentle, rating a low 2 EWG Skin Deep database. The main ingredients that stick out are FD&C colors such as yellow 5 and red 34. I had a little bit of a hard time locating the ingredients, as they weren't listed on the bottle, but they are on the website. I would love to see a label or something on the bottle that includes the ingredients as well.
Another great aspect of this line is the color selection. Even the reds are vegan, such as the beautiful classic red I tried. The finish was smooth and glossy, but I suspect it might be a little different if you select one of the shimmery colors. If you're looking for a long-lasting vegan polish, Benecos offers a great option.
