The colour is amazing - the perfect off-white pink that is lovely in the summer, especially if you have a bit of a tan! But it took me 3 and on some nails, 4, coats to get full coverage. I hate having to do that as I find then that the nail polish is more prone to peeling off the nail since it's so thick. I do love the colour though so I will definitely keep using it - I may just accept that it's a bit streaky and do two coats though!
This colour is very similar to the old Fiji formula - off-white with a hint of pink. I also find it similar to Urban Jungle, but with a pink undertone. I like my nail polish completely opaque and was satisfied after only two (thick) coats on all but one nail - super impressive for such a light shade!
This was the colour I expected fiji to be when I ordered it online. But Fiji was a little too pink for me... I really love this colour very much...its like white with a drop of pink in it.. formula is not that good.. it will take 3 coats at least for opacity. But since I love the colour I don't really mind.
I have a lot of trouble with the formula of most baby/milky pink polishes, but I found this a lot easier to work with than Essie Fiji, which is a favourite of mine. Romper Room is a touch more white-based than Fiji, but very similar.
