Lime Crime: Peaches ♡ Cream

Now onto another change of pace manicure-wise!

Today I have something completely different for you, something I would normally hesitate to wear:  a neon pastel peach!  Peaches Cream is another one of those wonderfully "intense" pastels from Lime Crime's Les Desserts d'Antoinette collection.  I really didn't know what to expect and this is one bright pastel! I nearly expected it to glow in the dark because of the strong neon leaning (LOL!) - alas no after dark glow, but it certainly does make my normally anaemic looking hands suddenly appear tanned!  The formula was a little thicker than most of the polishes in this range so I took extra care with application (read applied it s-l-o-w-l-y) and ended up with an even veneer in two coats.

Now just look at those "tanned" looking hands - I don't need a beach holiday, I just need Peaches Cream on my tips!

What do you think of this neon pastel?

Until next time.

    1. Hahaha! It seems food's influencing a lot lately - especially nail polish! All the pastels remind me of desserts and gelato too :)

    1. Thank you Liz! It's spring or summer with this one because of the neon, yet somehow the pastel draws it back from going over the neon edge and being too beachy :)
