This is warmer than Mademoiselle, but has a similar application and effect, which is to say smooth and clean looking. Minimal streaking with 3 coats. It's very “mannequin hands on my light-medium/neutral-yellow undertone in some lighting, but it can also appear like my polish has just yellowed. I can see it working for darker and warmer skin tones. As for me, I will stick to Mademoiselle!
I love this nail polish! I usually stick to dark reds but I needed a light pink color to match a dress. After seeing Salma Hayek with it on the cover of InStyle I thought I would try it out. The color is a very subtle pink and very shiny. I used 3 coats and it has lasted me almost a week which is longer than any other nail polish I own (even OPI). Also since it is such a pale color, chipping isn't very visible (definitely a plus).
I like this polish but am not in love with it. I needed three coats to get it to actually appear somewhat visible. I do enjoy that it gives my nails a super polished, clean look that one might consider a kind of "my nails but better" finish. I'd be lying if I said that I'll re-buy though. I think I'd rather shop around.
Classy, shiny, beautiful finish. I do two coats in addition to a base and top. This color is perf. if you can only groom your nails about once every 7-10 days, because chips don't show.
