It has been crazily, unseasonably warm here the past few days - it went up to 15 degrees! IN JANUARY! It has felt like March/April outside, and with all the spring polish collection announcements coming out lately, I've been dying to break out some pastels. And so, today I have China Glaze Peachy Keen to show you!
|Cloudy, 2 coats plus topcoat|
Peachy Keen is originally from China Glaze's acclaimed Up & Away collection, which was full of bright spring pastels. Peachy Keen is a difficult colour for me to describe. In the bottle it looks like a light peach pastel, but on me it definitely pulls darker and more orange. This is definitely a "peachy" orange though - it has that hint of dustiness and coral to it to stop it from looking like a ripe citrus.
This polish has a great formula. It's creamy, thick, and super easy to apply. I used two coats of polish and it covered perfectly.
While the orange and peach in this polish make Peachy Keen a bit more suitable for someone with a warmer skintone than me, I still really like this colour. As far as pastels go I'm more of a purple and blue girl myself, but this orange is a nice change from that! It certainly felt appropriate in these spring-winter days we've been experiencing lately.
Do you have any polishes from the Up & Away collection? How do you feel about spring colours in winter?
