This radiant semi-gloss sheen will help you create a sleek, reflective look that brings maximum impact to trim, windows and doors as well as indoor furniture and cabinets. Don't settle or compromise between the look you desire and higher level of durability you require. *A PRIMER COAT MAY BE NEEDED ON SOME SURFACES. SEE BACK LABEL FOR DETAILS.

Not very impressed
With all the advertising and guarantees I wanted to give this a try. Watching paint dry is never fun but since this paint is suppose to look good after one coat I thought it would also save me time and trouble moving furniture around. This was not the case at all, after painting over the old light blue paint it was still bleeding through a very noticeable amount. Ended up wasting my day repainting the room and now I have to buy more paint for the closet I didnt get to paint. This paint isnt exactly cheap so thats another negative. The only positive thing I can say about it is that at least it looks good after painting it twice.
