Manic.Monday: Peachy Keen with China Glaze

It's Monday again, and time to polish up on our polishes. A month or so ago I bought some lovely new nail polishes for spring and summer and one of those was China Glaze Peachy Keen (£4.38) which is a beautiful and radiant light coral color - simply perfect for summer. Yes I know it's still a few months to go before we're there, and I may not feel the warm sun on my face yet, but I can still channel a summery look on my nails
At the moment China Glaze isn't readily available on the high street in the UK, which is a real shame since it's an excellent brand with an amazing range of colors. So far I have tried three different shades and I have been extremely happy with all of them. Usually the formula has a great consistency and the polishes come with a superb wide brush that covers so much of the nail that you only need one brush stroke for each coat. With Peach Keen I found that the formula for some reason is a little bit thinner than the other shades that I have tried, so I had to wipe of the brush quite a few times to make sure that I only got a tiny drop of formula on the brush to avoid making a complete mess of the application. The pigmentation is so rich that despite using much less than I usually would, you still get a lovely opaque color with just one coat. As you know I usually apply two coats, which is also what I'm wearing in the photo however with China Glaze I have start to not use a top coat since the formula contains an ultra shine strengthening ingredient which also helps to make the polish chip resistant, and on average I would say that it lasts for about four days before you need to touch up.

Since the formula of Peachy Keen was a bit thinner I must admit that some of the nails got a slightly thicker coat than I would have wanted and I could tell that the wear wasn't as long lasting as it usually is, and I unfortunately noticed chipping already the day after I had applied the color on quite a few of my nails. However since it's such an easy to apply and quick drying polish I won't hold this against it and I've really enjoyed wearing this happy, sunny and summery versatile peachy color and I'm sure it'll look even more beautiful with a tan. You can easily get China Glaze online, and I prefer to get my stash from Beautybay.com since they often have some amazing deals and free delivery. If you haven't tried China Glaze yet I would highly recommend that you browse the fantastic range of shades and treat yourself to some gorgeous new polishes for summer.

  22. I do love orange on the nails and this is a nice almost neutral colour but without being insipid. I must add China Glaze to my US shopping list.
