Comparison Swabs:

Ink swabs for comparison, left to right (top to bottom for mobile RSS): Diamine Flamingo Pink, Colorverse 40 Girls Just Wanna, and Colorverse 5 Lights on CeresClick here to see the Colorverse inks together. 

Diamine Scarlet, Lamy Vibrant Pink, and Kobe 30 Oji Cherry. Oji Cherri is similar to Girls Just Wanna, but it's a bit brighter, and the flow is much wetter. Oji Cherry is the closest (and I actually prefer it over Girls Just Wanna). Click here to see the pink inks together.

Longer writing:

 I used a fine Jinhao Shark pen on Tomoe River paper. The ink had a slightly dry flow, which caused some skipping.

Overall, it's pretty well behaved, but a bit drier than I prefer. I do like the color, it reminds me of bubblegum.

In large swabs there is some interesting shading. The ink drops took forever to dry, and haven't even dried yet, they are still a bit wet.

 I used a fine Jinhao Shark pen on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average to slightly dry flow, and did have a few hard starts and skips.

Overall, it's got some nice shading, but it's pretty close to Diamine Kelly Green, which is much cheaper, and has a slightly better flow.
