Models Own Golden Peach

    Happy Monday!  Today I have for you the first of my new Models Own polishes.  Trying to decide which color to try first was not an easy decision.  I finally left it up to my husband and best friend.  Luckily they both chose the same color.  Which was, as the title says, golden peach.      

   The color on Golden Peach is just as the name would suggest.  It's a soft peach shimmer with a hint of gold duochrome.  The formula was great and applied flawlessly.  It is however a bit on the sheer side, but not too bad.  I used 1 coat China Glaze strong adhesion base coat, 3 coats Golden Peach, and 1 coat Seche Vite top coat.  At certain angles I can still pick up on a tiny bit of VNL.  The first day I wore this and tried to take pictures, and the couple days after, it was of course overcast and rainy.  First time in a couple weeks naturally.  I got lucky with some sun yesterday afternoon however and I managed a quick sunlight picture with my cell.  I think you can see the duochrome in the sun picture.

   I'm not sure how I feel about the color on me.  I don't dislike it, but I'm not sure I completely like it either.  Normally I'm a fan of orange polishes on me, but there's something about this one that keeps me from loving it.  What do you guys think?
   Probably because of the ambivalent feeling about the polish, I decided to play around a little bit.  I pulled a couple polishes to layer on top to see if they made me like it any more.  Here's a quick shot of what I did.

   Sorry for the blur.  I left my thumb plain to compare.  Left to right: Sally Hansen Hidden Treasures, Finger Paints Floatin' On a Cloud, China Glaze Nova, China Glaze Swing Baby.  Try as I might I just could not get my index finger to photograph well.  Which makes me sad because I really like the way that one turned out.  If you're one of the lucky ones who got a hold of Hidden Treasures you'll be able to get an idea of how pretty it looks.  If you've never seen Hidden Treasures, it's a flaky the shines red and gold in the light.  I will edit this post later if I can get a clear photo in the daylight.

EDIT: I never got a chance to get a clear photo of Hidden Treasures over this sadly.  I got called into work on a day off so I had to remove the polish sooner than planned.
