I've heard all the hype about how this shade was worn for the royal wedding and that reviews about it were good, and so I bought it to check it out myself.
I guess it varies on the 'color' of ones nails, because when I put it on by itself... it's as if I just put a top coat on... it was almost colorless... although after 5-6 coats... I think a veeeeeeeeeeeery light peach (what you actually see on the image above) shows.
It really is very light, as if you're not wearing anything. If you're wearing your nails longer, the 'longer' part of your nails will still show. For this reason, I don't like it that much (due to lack of color).
Perhaps a first layer of white (or other lighter color) might bring this shade to life. Or maybe it only works for the 'french-tip' style. But for wearing it solo, I'd probably skip it.
