I didn't have any serious issues with application. It wasn't too thick or too thin, but it definitely needed two coats to get the full effect. As with other Sephora by OPI polishes, it takes quite a while for me to notice any serious chips.
I don't have anything similar to this in my collection either. While I have plenty of burgundies, wines, and browns, I don't have any polishes that have this golden bronze metallic glow as well. This is definitely something I'll be using multiple times throughout the season.
Can you see yourself wearing this color?
