Fairy Dust on Peach Melba

Here I have Barry M's Peach Melba; a shade that is hard to describe but I would say a peachy cream. It has a perfect mixture of pink and orange, blended into such a colour that is hard to put your finger on. The application was extremely streaky, but after a second or even third coat, it becomes opaque. The shade is perfect, but the formula lets it down. However, once it's sorted itself out after a few coats and a good top coat, it looks laaavely! I find it's such a wearable shade - acceptable for work or evenings out.

Over Peach Melba I've used China Glaze's Fairy Dust which is the perfect shimmer that include micro particles that hold a variety of colours when in certain light. You can layer this over any shade and it instantly transforms the original colour. The photo below is slightly blurred and you can see an array of colours including lavender, gold, green & red.

Fairy Dust does alter the shade of the base polish slightly, making Peach Melba a little lighter in colour. I find the combination is lovely, don't you think?

You can buy Barry M nail polish here (under NP318) & China Glaze on Amazon UK. I bought mine from beautybay and they have an amazing selection.

Thanks for reading!
