Dawn - It Girl is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 3001.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The only yellow I can wear... Down side... it is a pain to apply. Dries very fast to the point of being streaky - and needs 3 coats to be opaque. Up side... different and flattering... and doesn't need a white coat underneath. It isn't something I would have ordered, as yellows generally don't look good on my pale cool skin... It was part of my welcome box - and it was a super nice surprise. :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Color, Poor Formula I received Dawn and Claudia together as the "Lemon Lime Time" Sweet Steal. Dawn is okay. Although she's not as pastel-like as pictured on the website above, I appreciate that her yellow color hints at a greener tone rather than a true bright yellow or yellow-gold. Her formula, however, is disappointing. Due to an unforgiving, streaky application, she needs three coats or two extremely thick ones for an uneven but full coverage, at which point the polish bubbles (see image below). She is also difficult to "clean up" around the edges of my nails (I use a soft brush dipped in acetone) due to her gooey nature. Overall, despite her unique color, she's not worth the hassle and poor end result.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Something unique I added Dawn on to my July Maven box, and I'm glad that I did. It's a weird color, to be sure, but I like that about it; it's different and unique. I found that it was actually really brightly colored, even slightly brighter than the swatches. Super fun and summery! It applies smoothly, and I had no issues with it. It does require three coats for opacity, but I won't fault this polish on that basis since it is a yellow. I can imagine a lot of people wouldn't like this color since it is rather offbeat, but I do so I would recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love Yellow! Definitely need 3 coats of this polish! I like that I don't need a white base coat to get the color to show up though. I would say the color isn't as bright as the picture shows

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color is Gorgeous - Application Not So Much. The color of this polish is gorgeous. I actually had this in my cart (and it was on my wishlist) the day before I received my mystery box. I ended up waiting for my mystery box before I made a purchase and I was SOOOOO excited to see that many of my "wishlist" polishes were in my mystery box, including this polish. The color of this polish is gorgeous and unlike anything I own. I don't think it looks like a nail fungus at all, and in terms of color alone it is my new favorite yellow polish! As much as I love the color of this polish, the formula and application are terrible. The polish is thick and goopy from first use and I may end up adding a thinner just to make it easier to use. Thick coats will get you nowhere and if you try adding a second thick coat, it will just remove the polish from your first coat. I found that this polish is easier to use when applying VERY thin coats, and a lot of them - I needed four coats to achieve complete opacity.
