Needs to be thinned or applied using top coat sandwich technique. Pretty color, but too much hassle for me... Though, it isn't bad for a white based creme. This polish would frustrate the average user since it is a 3 coater. Looks great with my golden undertone.
I am NW15 and I think this pop of color looking stunning on my skin tone. No tan required! If you are a cool shade of fair this may not work for you!
This is a nice bright peach. It does look very orange creamcicle, but compared to orange polish you do see the peach. I also bought Sunset Sail at the same time for a milder peach color, but use this on my toes. I think the formula is fine. Normal for China Glaze. Makes my toes look tan so I can see myself loving this in summer (or when I'm in the need for a summer fantasy like right now...brrrrr)
China Glaze Peachy Keen is from their Up and Away collection, it is exactly what you would think it to be, a peach creme. It does have a lot of orange in it, but I will still describe it was more peach than anything. The formula was just a tad thick which made application a little tricky and it did come out just a little bit streaky, but other than that I had no real application issues. I do see myself wearing this more often come the spring.
I've never seen a pastel (or white) creme polish that didn't go on streaky on the first coat, and this is no exception. The second coat was better, but still not perfect, and a couple of fingers required a third coat. As for the colour, it's a nice, reasonably bright, milky, pastel orange. I'm not going to quibble over the "apricot" vs "peach" terminology or try to describe the colour other than saying it's a bright, clear, pastel orange. How they managed to make it both pastel and bright at the same time I'm not sure, but they did, and it pretty much works. Wear is okay, application is what you'd expect, colour is nice enough, and that's pretty much it. If you're looking for a nice, bright pastel orange (peach, apricot, creamy orange, whatever you want to call it), this is worth considering. Unfortunately, this is a bit too pale pastel or a little too pink (not sure what the problem is) for my pale, cool-toned skin. I love it, and think it's really pretty, but it doesn't really flatter my complexion. It's odd, because I can normally wear any sort of orange, but this... not so much. I ended up having to put it in my "give away" bin, because it's just not very flattering on me, but I'm sure it'll be wonderful on someone else.
