This is a beautiful iridescent sheer ballet pink. If you used it on its own, you'd need at least four coats. I put two coats on two layers of ridge filler and it looks amazing. Girly but neutral.

I bought this because it looked like a gorgeous colour in the bottle, but when I applied it onto my nails, I was extremely disappointed. I'm usually very satisfied with Sally Hansen polishes but this one was the complete opposite. I applied 3 coats and it STILL was looking very sheer and I could see my nails through it very easily. I won't be buying this colour again!

This is a gorgeous sheer pink with a very girly lilac undertone. It does look somewhat opaque in the bottle, but I always test my polishes on a white card first just to get a better idea of what it looks like out of the bottle. So I wasn't at all surprised at the sheer finish. Three coats will get you a semi-opaque look. I adore the feminine look this polish gives my hands. It's instant pretty! I find the finish and wear on Sally Hansen nail polish to be one of the best in the market, and I'm a nail polish junkie! I've tried just about every brand and this is one of my faves!

In the bottle, Must-Have Iris looks like an opaque deep shimmer pearl candy pink. The *actual* colour is a sheer shimmer pink with lilac iridescence. So the packaging is deceptive (grrr Sally!). The colour is unique, and would have been quite stunning had it been opaque, but you can't achieve it no matter how many coats you put on.
Application was smooth and dried quickly. As with most of the Diamond Strength range (pffft! yeah right 7 days no chip), they start to chip about 2-3 days in.
All in all, a bit disappointed with this colour considering the price. Sorry Sally, won't be buying this again!

Semi-sheer iridescent pink frost with a lilac flash. Unique shade! Colors like this normally don't compliment my warm toned skin, but this one is flattering. It is a lovely shade for spring and summer. Very long wearing. My only complaint is that it doesn't really look like a sheer polish in the bottle and I wanted the color to really show. Even after 3 coats it isn't competely opaque, but it's still really pretty.
