China Glaze Peachy Keen vs. Finger Paints Circus Peanuts

I was looking at random polish on amazon last week and came across China Glaze Peachy Keen and I had to have it. I contemplated ordering it on amazon but something told me to wait and I'm glad I did! I randomly (or not so randomly.. hehehe) went to Sally's Beauty and they had it! woo hoo!

I used 2 coats with 2 coats of sech vite then I decided to add a coat of Essie Lux Effects A Cut Above. The application was a little frustrating. The first coat went on really thick and gloppy so I waited a while to do the second coat and I had a lot of dragging and uneven spots. Yuck! I'm hoping I can thin it out. After I finished this mani I realized that it looked super familiar then I remembered that I did the same thing with Circus Peanuts from the Finger Paints Gumdrops and Lolipops collection. The formulas are about the same crappy mess and they are near dupes! I haven't swatched them together but I just happened to have pictures of the Finger Paints mani. I'll add those at the end.

 Here you can see the color of the glitter a little better.

Just for S's and G's I decided to add a coat of Essie Matte About You. It looks pretty cool in person and pretty much just makes the glitter blend in with the polish. I like it. It was fun!

Here's the Finger Paints mani. The pictures suck because I hadn't yet figured out how to get clear pictures with my camera.

Pretty close, eh?? I think Circus Peanuts is a little brighter and a little more on the orange side while Peachy Keen leans more.. well, peach! lol
