Hi guys! Another day another polish. First thing's first: have you entered my GIVEAWAY? You can do so by clicking the image on the top of the righthand sidebar. It's easy. Do it prease. Kthx.
Alright, so I'm going to go ahead and say that China Glaze Up & Away was probably the most anticipated spring collection. I was definitely looking forward to it, so much so that I made the Sally's employees dig through boxes to find it a month before its release. The whole collection looked lovely to me, but more than anything I was looking forward to Peachy Keen, a true peach creme. Then I started seeing swatches of it pop up in the blogosphere and I got a bit worried. Plus I heard that it applied horribly, which makes sense. It's a really light pastel creme, so I don't know why it would apply well.
So it didn't apply that badly. This was two coats but I could have used three. The formula was okay, just really thick like Grape Pop was. I think before I use it again I'll thin it a bit. I just can't decide whether or not I like it on me. I think it would look fabulous on darker skin tones, but I think because I'm so fair it looks weird. What do you guys think? Does anyone really love Peachy Keen? In that last picture it kind of reminds me of the goop inside of a pumpkin. I used flash in none of my images, just natural light.
I'm going to be a total dork right now and give you the definition of "peach," according to Wikipedia: "Peach is a color that combines pink and orange colors. This color is named for the pale color of the peach fruit. Like the color called apricot, the color called peach is paler than most actual peach fruits and seems to have been formulated (like the color apricot) primarily to create a pastel palette of colors for interior design." Isn't that interesting? Primarily for interior design?
And for your amusement, here is another famous Peach.
I only have three Up & Away polishes, and I've only tried two of those three. I loved Grape Pop and I think Peachy Keen is...okay. I guess I don't know yet. Still undecided. Does anyone have a favorite polish from U&A that I should definitely buy? I still have Refresh-Mint on deck so you'll probably be seeing that one soon.
Alright, as always, thanks for reading! You guys are the bestest.
