It was only after I'd painted this manicure that I was reminded of that lovely dessert that wouldn't die from the 80's. Seriously. People made disgusting punch with it, they thought that all kids loved it. YUCK. So. Gross. Cookies and Cream allllllllll the way. Ahem.

So... I'm really loving this color combination at the moment. Even more so, I'm loving the peachy-coral color that was aptly dubbed Peach by City Colors. If you're wondering where the name of the polish can be found, (I had to search) it's on the wrapper above the ingredients, in parenthesis. (hopefullyyoudidn'tripthewrapperoff)

This "peach" leans more toward pastel pink-ish coral than peach... either way, it's a gorgeous shade with my skin tone. I could see this looking better and better as I get more tan over the summer. BUT. The formula is INCREDIBLY frustrating. I'm thinking the problem is the brush, because during application, I felt a bit of a drag. Not sure that it can ALL be blamed on the brush and formula. User error could've occurred because it was late, the lighting wasn't great, and my eyes were drooping. I wore this shade along over the weekend and used 4 generous coats, and the streaks were less evident.

I've blogged about Pistache and Sandstorm before, and they compliment Peach nicely. On my right hand, I wore Sandstorm on my thumb, Pistache on my index and pinky fingers, and Peach on my middle and ring fingers. I don't often wear skittle manicures, but I like the pattern of this one.

Would you wear a Skittle mani?
