This color was sent to me as part of a swap on Makeup Alley so I didn't even choose it for myself! But, hey, that's kind of cool. Usually I'm not a huge Essie fan because the colors tend to be a little tame for my taste -- how many variations on pale pink does one really need? Antique Rose is a dusty pink that isn't too flashy. It also isn't the typical Essie pale which means that I dig it.
