I don’t know quite what came over me on Saturday but I went a bit peach-crazy with my nail polish buying and ended up with 3 peach-toned polishes I’ve never been a peach lover and I never thought this polish would suit my skin tone. Thankfully, my hands are a little tanned from doing my revision in the sun, so I think that’s why it managed to look okay on me. If you have fingers with a tendency to go bright pink I would definitely steer clear of Peach Melba as it does clash – my hands got particularly cold yesterday and went deep pink – it was awful haha. The colour is really flattering to a tanned/darker skin tone.
Anyways, these pictures are all at 2 average coats. Dry time was okay, typical of Barry M really, and I still suffered sheet marks but hey ho. The finish was very glossy, as usual. The pigmentation was good, but as you can probably see the polish is a little streaky in places – it dragged some of the colour on the second coat which was a shame but nothing a third coat wouldn’t sort out. I know a few people have had problems with streakiness with this polish so just beware if you aren’t willing to go for a 3rd coat!
I couldn’t really get a good picture of the polish, the camera seemed more interested in the non-existent pink of my skin, hence the blotchiness – most of the photos I took of Peach Melba it looked nude which it definitely is not! It’s definitely a very classic peach colour, I can’t really describe it but it just is. You may want to Google image it rather than relying on my post since my pictures are far from amazing.
I’d recommend this polish if you’re a fan of the colour peach – I’m not too sure about it and I’m still not convinced that I love this polish, though it is growing on me. It is a possible cheaper dupe of Illamasqua’s Purity (I don’t have the two to compare – sorry!)
Sorry my posts are a bit boring of late, I blame revision and I will definitely be better post-exam time (i.e. July) and I will try to make stuff more interesting if I get a bit of spare time – thank you for being patient! How are you all? Do let me know
