China Glaze Peachy Keen

China Glaze's Peachy Keen is awfully, uh, bright.

Barielle Hydrating Ridge Filler Base
3 coats lacquer
1 coat CND "Air Dry"

Not streaky so much a wash when applied thinly. After two applications, I still had some funny washed looking nails along with some bright nails. A third coat gave them all a bright evenness.

I had some tipwear at day three, but it did hold up remarkably well during a spectacular crash that shaved off nail layers. Very little chipping around the damage.

Laid out on my colorcard, I can't figure out what "Peachy Keen" is ... it is not orange, it is not red, it is not pink. It is a funky combination of the three.

I'd definitely consider it a nectar/melon color. And it looks horrid on me. I suspect someone with some skin pigmentation would pull this off much better than myself.

It is flirting with neoness when mixed with my pale yellowed skin tone.
