China Glaze Peachykeen Nail Lacquer

China Glaze Up & Away Collection: Peachykeen

China Glaze Peachykeen Nail Lacquer is a brightened up peachy-orange creme. It’s distinctly orange, but it has enough lightness to give it a peachier feel. It’s really like an apricot to me, actually. You could call it Apri-peach, and I’d dig it. It’s completely and utterly unlike MAC’s Seasonal Peach Nail Lacquer, which is more of a pinky-peach and far lighter. (The good news is China Glaze’s creme formula applies more evenly and less streakingly–at least the final results–than MAC’s Seasonal Peach did.) It’s not a neon orange either, in case anyone was worried (or wanting!) about that.

This is sort of a middle-of-the-road shade; Peachykeen didn’t give me much trouble in application, but it wasn’t as smooth or even from the get-go as the deeper shades like Four Leaf Clover. It’s a thick, richly pigmented creme formula that doesn’t apply like goo or run all over the place, so it’s a pretty good formula. It just may take you one or two attempts to get the application down for this formula.

    I like this more than the MAC Seasonal Peach shade because it speaks “peach” and the application is better too.
