It is not easy to describe the actual color of the polish on my nails, especially as the color looked different in different lighting. Without sunlight or bright light on it, the polish was a dull or dusty orange. It was still very pretty, though. Sometimes it looked like the color of band-aids, like it had a little brown or beige in it. Sometimes it looked like butterscotch pudding. In its more muted form, I think it might be a nice color around Easter, and of course it would make a very nice color for Indian summer or fall. I would say it is a work-safe color because it doesn't stand out so much inside an office.
I used three coats, and there was still visible nail line in some lighting. At three coats it was a little darker than the bottle color, so I stopped at three, not to mention that adding another coat would have added more drying time. It did dry well, though.
The brush is a slightly wider, flatter and thicker brush than the traditional Revlon brush, for example. I normally don't like wider brushes, but I do like the Hits brushes.
The formula is very good. It wears very well, and I had no chips. I did have some regular tip wear, and I had some shrinkage from quick-dry top coats.
Here are some pictures:
