It has been a while since I painted my nails with China Glaze. The constant hunt for new colours, new brands has opened up my polish horizon, and I’m embracing the differences. I still love China Glaze, don’t get me wrong. I have a lovely colour to prove it 🙂
For the weekend, I pulled out China Glaze Peachy Keen. It is a pretty peach colour in the bottle, but by the look of lots of online swatches, I expected it to be a peachy pastel. Was so surprised the way it turned out on my nails, a true peach colour 🙂 Did take me a bit of time to come to love it on my skin tone.
I have the same issue capturing the true shade of Peachy Keen. This picture was taken at night with flash which washed the shade out to a lovely pastel. Take my words, it is darker IRL. More pictures to follow.
This is a glamorous version of Peachy Keen. I added a layer of Maybelline Colorama flakie in Shimmer Girl (gold) and a layer of Cover Girl Boundless in Pink Twinkle (a pink glitter in clear base). A nice combo of various brands and texture.
I know that a flakie shows up the best on top of dark colours, but I was curious to see it transform Peachy Keen, and I’m glad I did.
All pictures are clickable for larger view. I’m in love with this mani. Fun and warm for a spring day 🙂
Below, on the left is the same flakie version but with flash. Again, the colour was washed out a lot. On the right is in indirect natural light, by the window. What do you think?
