Problematic Peach Take Two *Pic Heavy*

Hello my lovelies! Hopefully everyone has the day off and is enjoying some relaxation time. Don't forget to thank a service man or veteran today! I've been enjoying spending some time with my family in Tampa and will be headed back to Tallahassee a little later. Fingers crossed for no traffic!

So anybody that's been following my blog for awhile may remember this fail of a polish that I was pretty bummed about because I loved the concept of it. Well I decided that I just could not leave well enough alone and took another stab at it. I started out with about 75% of a bottle's worth of TKB Glamour Base. I then added literally one drop of Wonder Beauty Product's Primary Red Color Base. I then followed it up by adding about 3 drops of Wonder Beauty Products Primary Yellow Color Base to create a nice yellow based orange polish. Finally I added a couple drops if white cream polish to create a nice creamy peach color. I had to be very careful not to add too much white as I didn't want the polish to be too opaque. Finally I added a couple scoops each of TKB Blue Diamond (a blue glass fleck-ish shimmer) and Aqua Sparks! ( an aqua colored shimmer). What was created was a pastel peach shimmer which may not agree as much with my skin tone, but is still gorgeous (and ridiculously hard to photograph).

This is one of the best shots of the shimmer I could get

The formula on this was MUCH better than the initial fail polish. While it might still benefit from a couple drops of thinner but this still wasn't too difficult to manage. It self leveled on its own and was opaque in two coats. The shimmer was MUCH more apparent in real life. I loved the delicate peach color mixed with the blue aqua shimmer; such an unexpected and lovely combination!

Well that's it for the Problematic Peach Remix! I will be back on Wednesday with more polish awesomeness. Those of you traveling for the holiday, do it safely and until next time, remember to keep it classy and creative!
