I was dubious about the brush as this is much wider then I am used to. However it is so much easier to get a neat manicure with a wider brush. I think I now prefer wider brushes, it is a shame that 99% of my collection don't have them.
This also applies like a dream, even and practically opaque in one coat, I did use two. I have found the Nails Inc polishes to be a bit hit and miss recently, but this was amazing and dried really fast too, with no bubbles. The wear was also good I think I wore for a good 5-6 days with minimal wear.
I am so impressed with Essie the quality is just as good as Nails Inc, perhaps in some instances better yet cheaper. I am slightly concerned that with these being limited edition I might use up the mini and might not be able to replace.
You can buy either the mini set which included this plus two other shades for £9.99 from boots.com or the full size for £7.99 here
