While normally I go for the more flashy or less traditional colours, I think it would be a really fun colour to own for various purposes.
I’d planned on ordering Eyeko’s Nude for my first try, but then it went and disappeared from the site together with another lemming — Tea Rose. Pretty sad when I discovered that. My quest to own all Eyeko nail polishes is over before it ever really took off….
Getting back to business, as my first encounter with GOSH was successful (btw, I updated that post with a new picture) I decided to give their Miss Sweety — a pale apricot creme — a go. I needed two thin coats for complete opacity.
In artificial light it really does make me look like I have mannequin hands as it’s that close to my skintone.
But on the photos, in bright natural lamplight, I can see that something’s off. I can’t pinpoint exactly what, but maybe it’s slightly too dark and orange-y? For it to match my skintone I think it needs to be less saturated as well…
I don’t know, really, what’s off. Despite the ruddiness of my fingers, I have very neutral undertones, I’m just über-pale. Most “nude” nail polish colours I looked at in the store were way too pink, and now this “apricot” colour is confusing me too.
You know what? Even if it’s not perfect, I still like it, and it’ll definitely suffice until I find the perfect match. Which might or might not ever happen.
