Not only is the colour great but the sturdiness of the polish is great also. I haven't had a chip yet in the first two days of using it. I have to say the older OPI nail polishes chip really easily and don't last long at all. For strawberry Margharita I only applied me coat and it's pretty vibrant. No top coat or base coat is needed. Looks great with MAC Lickable or Impassioned.
