I like this colour a lot. I got it because it's a MUCH less expensive near-dupe for Butter London's Trout Pout. Maybe I got a bad batch but my bottle is very very streaky. Even after three coats the colour was somewhat uneven. Still, I like the colour enough to put up with the formula for now.
I love this shade and tend to collect a lot of peachy pinks in my polish collection. The colour is bright and fresh and almost summery in vibe. The formula was nice - you'll need two thicker coats or three thin ones. I was so sure I had a dupe for this because I love peachy pinks but I can't find anything exact. Tonally it's most similar to Dior 'Pink' (maybe 95% similar) but just a bit lighter and brighter. It's very different from Essie's Peachside Babe (which is way more peach) and Stones and Roses (which is more dusty, pinker and darker). It's darker and more saturated than NCLA's Bikinis and Martinis. If you missed Dior's Pink last year, this gets pretty close!
