Dahlia Cantaloupe

Before seeing Dahlia Nail Lacquer on Ebay, I had never heard of the brand. Although after a little digging, I discovered it is a cosmetics company that was established in 1924. To be around that long, they must be doing something right, right? So I gave in and bought two Dahlia polishes. Cantaloupe is the first one of the two I've tried.

I used Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love on top. Cantaloupe by itself is shiny and the exact color of the inside of the fruit its named for. Its got a little more peach to it than the picture shows, but if you've seen a cantaloupe, you know the color.

I don't think you can tell from the picture, but it painted on streaky. Even after four coats. Perhaps thinning it would help. I will thin it before using it again. But don't let my streaky experience deter anyone from purchasing a Dahlia polish. I've had bad experiences with wonderful polish brands. I blame it on a bad batch or a chemical reaction to my body chemistry. Who knows why it happens...

I plan to try my other Dahlia polish soon. I'll let y'all know how it paints on. Hopefully better than this one.


  1. I hate when I love a color, but the application is a bitch!

  2. I know! I'm really hoping that thinning it out will help.
