Twinsie Tuesday: Spring to Summer Transitional Polish

It's really sad when long weekends end, especially when you feel like you -- or in this case, I -- didn't adequately take advantage of it.  Given the fact that I went to a Connecticut spa and inn on a family-girls' vaca, went insane furniture shopping, and picked out all the paint we'll be using this upcoming weekend, I really shouldn't complain; however, given that it's 9:48pm Monday night as I write this, I'm just exhausted.  All I want is another day to catch up with everyone else's 3-day weekend.  Ugh.

Anyways, to the Twinsie Tuesday post!  For my spring to summer transitional polish, I knew that I had to choose one of my favorite go-to colors for this season: peach!  I personally find that given the shade, peach is the ultimate transitional color since depending on its tone, finish, and base, can really shift shades dramatically.  For today's polish, I chose China Glaze Mimosa's Before Mani's (don't even get me started on those ridiculously placed apostrophes), of China Glaze's Avant Garden Spring 2013 Collection.

MBM (because I refuse to write the whole title again due to my strict grammatical principles) is a warm-toned, orange-based peach creme with hidden golden shimmer.  Application was phenomenal and covered beautifully in  two coats. 

When the sun/flash hits MBM, there's a creamsicle-like quality that erupts that just screams  almost summer.  Love, love, love this China Glaze.

  1. Ha @ not writing the entire name again! Perfect color on you!

  2. This is definitely on my "to get" list. Love it!

  3. This is a beautiful shade, and it's so pretty on you too! I actually wanted to get it too, but I just couldn't get past those apostrophes. >_<

  4. It truly hurts, on a deep visceral level.

  5. I had a feeling you would do a peach or coral shade.

  6. Lol, am I that predictable?

  7. This color suits you so well!! Love the hint of shimmer in it. P.S. the apostrophes bother me too.

  8. Beautiful polish! Your weekend sounds like it was jam packed girlie! Glad you were able to pick out your new furniture and paint :)

  9. Peach is a great transition color, and this is one lovely peach!!

  11. This is such a perfect shade! It was definitely my favorite from their spring collection. Great choice!

  12. That is such a gorgeous colour. I usually like China Glaze and their polish names but that one is ridiculous :/

  13. How did that pass quality control??

  14. BEYOND ridiculous. It physically pains me, it's that bad.
