Cult Nails Kiss My Rose Bush Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a “classic pink … [with] a modern twist … [with a] wax finish.” It’s a medium pink with subtle warm undertones and a wax finish–so it’s mostly matte, almost squishy-looking (like vinyl, rubber, etc.) but has a slight sheen. MAC Snob is shinier. MAC Silly is lighter and shinier. Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink is darker, shinier. Essie Off the Shoulder is darker, shinier. See comparison swatches here.

I found the consistency of this shade to be a little on the thick side, and it was harder to apply smoothly and evenly. I felt like it was almost sticking to the nail and was rather streaky on the first coat. The second coat covered a lot of the streaking but not all. Because of the wax finish, I do recommend using a ridge-filling base coat to smooth out the surface. The wear I get with the wax finish formula gives me more tip wear after seven days than the cream/shimmer formula from Cult Nails. I didn’t have any issues with chipping, though.
