Roses, such as Dahling, are the colors I love the most. As much as I like paler colors on other people, mid-toned colors looks best on my very pale (pink) skin, as I find that most nudes, and certainly any color with gold or yellow, can give me the dreaded lobster hands.
This color is fantastic, but I am hopeless at manicures, especially when I spend 20+ hours a week in the gardens. Anyway, this blog is called Everyday Beauty, not Pampered Beauty.
The color looks a bit washed out above. It's actually deeper and so pretty on I might have to buy a backup, and I almost never do that with nail polish (except for Revlon Teak Rose).
Application is very smooth, and I achieved opaque coverage in two thin coats. Wear is average, around 5 days before it begins to fray from the edges of my nails. No chipping over Orly Bonder base coat with a single top coat of Seche Vite.
Bottom line: A sophisticated, ladylike rose that goes with everything and is a good substitute for reds.
