Until recently, I was pretty opposed to the color peach (and its sister, apricot). I think mostly because it always calls to mind a particularly horrific sweater I knit when I was a teenager. Imagine this: a sweater in the best early 1980's faux-1880s style, done in peach acrylic sport weight yarn. The body of the sweater is fan and feather stitch to just above the bust, where it becomes stockinette, transitioning into a high neck with keyhole opening at the back, closing with faux pearl buttons. Now, here's where it really gets bad. Leg-o-mutton sleeves: fitted stockinette up to the elbow, poufing out in fan and feather and gathered at the shoulder.
I'll pause while you shudder and reach for the mind bleach.
So it's taken over 30 years for me to come back around to this color, but suddenly I can't get enough of it. The only color I was interested in from the spring Essie collection was the peach. I went to Walgreen's every day for half a week until they finally put it on the shelf. And I got this polish when I ordered Zoya's spring collection, to put me in free shipping territory.
I don't think it's the best color on my skin tone, but I do really like it. It has a subtle silver shimmer that doesn't go away when it dries, like some of the Zoya shimmers. It did take me three coats to get the color and opacity I like, but since I'm procrastinating about starting on my taxes, I didn't mind spending the extra time.
I'm thinking that later I may do some silver stamping over this. Will report back.
