For one, I love the color! It's an awesome color and not like anything else in my large collection. It's so nice to find a unique color! As soon as I can upload some pictures (hopefully I'll be able to get my Google issues straightened out soon and be able to upload pics again - fingers crossed) I will come back and edit this post!
Application was easy. I did use my Gelish base and topcoat, as I refuse to buy each different brands base/top. I applied two coats of the Greystone. They applied smoothly, gave me great coverage, and I experienced no shrinkback or streaking at all.
I wore this for 11 days, which is pretty average for me. I had no reason to take it off really other than I wanted to do something new (I was super excited about a custom color I whipped up recently and just had to try it). I could've definitely gotten at least two weeks out of this, if not more.
After about a week I had added some spectraflair on top, which was mixed into a little Gelish Simple Sheer, with a fresh layer of Top It Off (TIO). So I had on base coat, two layers of Greystone, TIO, a layer of simple sheer with the Spectraflair, and new TIO. Oh, and I didn't buff the original topcoat before I did the spectraflair.
Today I removed the mani (as I said, because I was dying to try out my other creation), and it removed LIKE A DREAM! Even with two layers of topcoat. After a mere 8 minutes most of it slid right off, with the exception of a few stubborn tip spots where I use bonder that I had to soak an extra minute or two. Had I waited the full 10 mins I wouldn't have had to do that I'm certain.
I would definitely recommend the TruGel to anyone. I loved it and can see adding more colors from their line-up.
While my google issue is not fixed, I have (as always) found another way. :) Sure hope Google gets my stuff fixed soon though - this process would likely be faster if you could CONTACT Google in any way, but apparently you can't. ;-/
