Brucci Lou Lou's Peachy Creme (Challenge Day 15: A Polish That's Name Describes You)

Personally, I think this day's challenge is a bit weird.  I mean, so many polishes have very strong, empowered names: Revlon Fierce, Essie Demure Vix(en), Color Club Revvvolution, etc.  Sometimes brands get carried away and some have started with a theme and seem to have completely lost it once their polish hits it big (ahem, Zoya).  So when I had to think of a polish title that described me, I found myself perusing my stash list and scratching my head. Everything sounded so cheesy.

In the end, I went with Lou Lou's Peachy Creme.  No, I was not a Lou Lou in a previous life, and peach isn't even my favorite color.  The only reason this struck me as apropos is because I tend to respond "just peachy" when people ask me how I am.  I'm also really fair-skinned, so I guess that falls under having a peaches and cream complexion.  Weak connection, but there it is.

Anyways, to the polish.  Another lovely Brucci that applied well in 3 coats (pastels are notoriously streaky, so after 3 you should be all set).  I personally find this color rather unique because it's a pink leaning peach that has a tinge of brightness to it.  Most peaches I have are more orange based and not necessarily as flattering or as happy looking.  Whenever I wear this polish, it just makes me smile and feel all whimsical.

With flash, this goes kinda neon-esque and a bit chalky, but it's nothing like that in real life.  The first two pictures are much more color accurate.

I'd love to know if anyone has a polish that they think describes them.  Feel free to share!


  1. I like it! Reminds me a bit of Essie Van D'Go.

  2. I totally didn't see this as a dupe for Van D'Go until you pointed that out. Good eye :)

    And I'm glad you guys like this color, I wore it to death this summer. It's one of my faves!

  3. I like to think that Essie California Coral describes me, but probably not :D
