The formula on this particular polish is quite nice. It applied opaque in one coat, but I did two to even it out. This polish dried super quickly. I don't think that it was completely dry in 60 seconds, but I applied a top coat after about 3 minutes with no smearing. From what I saw in the store, there didn't seem to be a huge color selection, however, The color and formula of this polish is great, and the price is fantastic, so I definitely plan to pick up some more of these.
