I’ve had this color for ages and was never really motivated to try it. I thought it looked beautiful in the bottle but was worried it wouldn’t translate well into real life. I hate it when a polish does that and it so often happens with shades like these once on me.
This wasn’t a huge disappointment, but it did transfer almost perfectly – it’s a peach shimmer with a lovely gold undertone. Unfortunately, the shade is a bit too warm for me. 🙁
It’s a gorgeous color nonetheless – see below.
It looks so ho-hum boring in the shade, doesn’t it?
Sunlight brought this baby to life, showing flashes of peach, pink and gold shimmer. It’s very pretty, n’est-ce pas? I know I don’t have a color similar or even remotely close to this, so even though it’s a bit on the warm side for my skin I’m going to keep this!
Part of the 2009 summer collection called Kicks (I have Custom Kicks somewhere here…either in CA or AZ), I only purchased 2 colors because I’m not a neon fan and I felt this wasn’t worth the effort for me to swatch…sorry for the neon lovers out there.
It’s a fun summer color, that’s for sure. Unfortunately, it’s not a color for me.
I love the China Glaze Holographics. How can anyone not like them? 😀
Even without the flash, this color was throwing holographics everywhere. I didn’t know what to do. I finally decided to tame the beast with a single flash setting. It’s a gorgeous teal, isn’t it? It was a nice cool color against my skin tone.
Love how the sun really brought this into play. In the shade it was this deceptive little color was pretending to be a tame gold nail polish. Out in the sun, I swear it was one of my favorite gemstones (lemon quartz) gone wild! It’s a bit warmer in the undertones than I expected and it clashed terribly with my skin, but … how can you deny how gorgeous it looks?!
