On My Radar: Peach Nail Polish

So right now: Safari. Think army green twill pants, wild prints, outdoorsy, muted palettes, and a big floppy hat...super-exciting, right? I'm not quite there on the prints, but I love myself some army green, and my closet could certainly use a little punch.

I'm thinking with all this wildness going on, that it might be time to take it down a notch on the nail polish. After a winter of screaming jades and purples, I wanna blend in a little more. But not too much! The remedy: A perfect peach. Make no mistake. I don't mean the sheer, you-can-hardly-tell-I-have-on-nail-polish peach. But a yummy, orangey, reminds-me-of-a-creamsicle peach--the color peach that will perfectly work with any safari print you throw at it and complement any shade of olive.

The one on the left is Shades by Barielle in Blossom and below are some others that I just adore. If anyone's tried any of these or has a peachy suggestion of your own--let me know!

Revlon Nail Enamel in Peach Nectar, for $4.79

Nail Polish in Palm Springs, American Apparel for $6.00

OPI Cosmo-not Tonight Honey, Cosmetic Market for $8.50

I don't think I can do it. I love it, don't get me wrong. You know I have brave nails.

I just fear peach. My skin tone + peach = not so cutey-patootie.

Sigh.... you know I hate disappointing you.

You just have to pick the right shade, Miss Blogs. We shall do it together.

I wonder if AnnieBlogs has my problem: I am already 100% pale peach! Very...very..pale...
