The colour is described as a classic grown up pink and I couldn't agree more. The colour was only as harsh/white in the first day or so of wear (when this picture was taken), after that it faded to a manageable pretty nude - the kind you would find in a french manicure set. Its very pretty, subtle and feminine and when applied with two coats and even finish, looks shiny and professional looking. Next time I wear it, I'm going to do a french manicure look to see how it works with that!
The nail polish itself stayed on for 10 days straight without a single chip - I don't know if that's because its a nudey pink and I didn't notice or if it is particularly wear-resistant but I was really impressed.
I'm always impressed with Essie nail varnishes - they're my favourite high end polish brand and I couldn't recommend them more as they're worth every penny of their 7.99 price tag - 10/10
