I find that pink polishes are streakier in application. I love the colour on my skintone though, for some reason it just works really well and seems to last decently. Takes 3 layers to go opaque. One layer would be pretty and sheer if it wasn't a streaky formula.

I'm about to go travelling, and I always choose a light shade to wear and take when I'm going away. I learned my lesson about trying to take a base coat and top coat as well or attempting to use one of those base-and-top-coat in one. Having used other Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes before, I knew that I was a fan so I grabbed Royal Blush. Royal Blush is a pinky-peach semi-sheer shade that isn't too milky (depending on your skin tone). With three coats this colour is almost opaque, but there is still some slight VNL. I actually don't mind a bit of sheerness, but I find that it's a very subjective preference so you probably won't be a fan if you crave a strong and opaque colour. I love the colour though. Soft without being super girly or make me look pasty. Very appropriate for travel as chips were barely visible. I tested the claims of requiring no base and top coat. I found I got a couple of chips after about 5 days of wear. I removed the polish after 7 due to my bad habit of peeling nail polish off once it starts to chip. Not bad considering how I rushed to put it on. As for application, I really like the brush. It's easy to control; however, I swear mine is cut asymmetrically - something is a little off about it. However, it has a nice width and stiffness that allows me to work easily with it. Although it may have been the cut of my particular brush (I plan on re-cutting it I think), I did find that it didn't quite apply too evenly, but I find that this is usually not a big deal when you are used to applying 2-3 coats anyways. All around a good natural/neutral polish to have on hand. I recommend having one that is marketed as "completed" even if it is just that peace of mind it gives when you don't have the time to or want to do a complete manicure. I would say that this colour is not necessarily essentially. There are other great natural colours in the line that would do the trick!

Royal Blush is a pale peach creme polish. This is a great nude shade and looks warm on my skintone. This goes on sheer but builds up with 3 coats and there is still some visible nail line. I like the flat brush in this, it makes it easier to apply polish and I can get a nice edge with it. The polish goes on without streaking, flooding, running, or balding with additional coats. This polish wore very well for me and I had no chips and only minimal tip wear after 5 days of use. This is a nice office friendly neutral shade, but it is a little boring. I would have liked this better if it had some subtle shimmer or something to make it more memorable. This is a decent polish overall though.

This is a pale peach polish. Like other Sally Hansen CSM polishes you do need 3 coats.

What a disappointment. Generally I like these polishes, my favorite is Shell We Dance - and I thought this new nude-looking color would be perfect for Spring. It streaked terribly upon application, even with a base coat, 2 coats of color, and a top coat and didn't change upon drying. Then it chipped the next day. Tossed it in the garbage.
