Nail of the Day: Essence Modern Romance

Today’s nail of the day is very appropriate for the holiday season. The color is Modern Romance by Essence and the accent nail is Millionaire by Nailtini. I really like this combination.

Nail of the Day: China Glaze Peachy Keen

I love this color! China Glaze Peachy Keen is the perfect creamy peach nail polish shade. It is the only true peach nail polish I own. As with most of China Glaze’s polishes, this one is a little thick, but not overly so. It requires only 2 coats for full opacity. The only downfall is that for me, this is a little hard to apply because it is on the thicker side and initially it looks streaky. This shade is definitely in my top 3 favorite nail polishes in my collection.

Have you tried Peachy Keen? Do you know of any dupes?
