In the bottle, Rose Cache is a dusty soft pink that is significantly lighter compared to Morning Rose.
At first glance, the pink shimmers in the bottle are not very noticeable. However, it can be seen if the bottle is tilted in the right angle.
Despite the gorgeous shimmers shown above, Rose Cache failed to deliver the same amount of intensity on the nails. The formula is rather sheer so it takes 3-4 coats for full opacity. I can still see visible nail lines with 1-2 coats. Rose Cache did however, glide on smoothly without clumps or streaks.
In direct bright sunlight:
On my nails, you can see a faint hint of shimmer peaking through. With indoor lighting, Rose Cache looks like a simple glossy soft pink without any shimmers.
In darker lighting with flash:
Here are a couple of possible dupes for Rose Cache from my collection of pink nail varnishes. From the bottle alone, Essie's Innocent looks the most promising but it doesn't have any pink shimmers.
On the nail wheel, Innocent is darker and most pink, Essie Ladylike is cooler toned, Zoya's Pandora is not as pink, Tickle My France-y has more gray undertone, and Skinny Dip'n In Lake Michigan is a nude salmon-beige. Alas, I don't have an exact dupe for Rose Cache so I'm quite glad I had picked this up.
The same shades in bright sunlight:
Overall, I'm quite smitten with Rose Cache. To me, it is a gentle and girly shade that I can wear in any season like a classic Chanel purse. I feel that Rose Cache is the most unique out of the 3 in this collection because of the subtle shimmers. However, I do wish that the shimmers would translate a little bit better on the nails.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a simple yet elegant and chic pink nail varnish, you may want to check out Rose Cache. It is a bit on the sheerer side so it will take at least 3 coats for full opacity. I am sure there are similar shades to Rose Cache but nothing quite exactly the same. When it comes down to these natural types of shades, Chanel always manages to come out on top. It is a must-have? Probably not unless you are drawn to shades like it. It is a nice-to-have? Absolutely!
