Summer nail colours

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. I've been busy with some changes in my life, namely quitting my job so I can do graduate school. I also haven't really felt like buying any makeup lately, just mostly clothing, probably because I feel that my wardrobe is sorely lacking in some aspects for the program I'm in :P

Anyway, before summer is over I thought I'd share swatches of 2 very summer-appropriate nail polishes:

MAC Seasonal Peach

This was 4 freaking coats! I wouldn't recommend this polish at all, the colour is quite sheer and streaky. I'm sure I've seen dupes of this colour from China Glaze or Essie.

American Apparel Butter

2 coats only! Love how pigmented this polish is. I don't think I've seen a similar colour from other brands but this polish priced well enough (US$7.50) you don't really need to find a dupe.

So what have you been wearing on your nails lately?

4 coats?! Holy cow. Well, on the bright side they are both gorgeous colors and perfect for the season! Good luck in grad school :D

Good luck on graduating!

I absolutely love your two summer nil polishes, especially the MAC Seasonal Peach! Looks perfect against your skintone too!

Since I'm working full-time in the gastronomy (during break), I have not been wearing any nail polishes recently.

But I'm very into greyish taupe colors, although they are more fall-colors. :)

Hugs, embrace the change, one step at a time hun. School will be a fun change from the work world, won't it? :)

I still don't own any AA polishes, weird eh?

American Apparel Butter is quite unique! Reminds me of butter candies :)

good luck with graduate school :)

and four coats? woah, i would never have the patience with that unless it dries quick.
and i think joe fresh has a nail polish called butter which may be a dupe for that. im not sure though

Good luck with grad school. That's brave step.

The weather is boiling here in Tokyo so I'm not so interested in cosmetics for now too. I desperately need clothes that are suitable for this crazy heat.

Love the yellow polish, its so pretty! Goodluck with school, you made a good decision.

oooo pretty colors! I've been wearing peach colors this summer too (china glaze V) and nudes.
I've been wondering how the AA polishes were. There are two colors from their line that always catch my attention.

I've got seasonal peach too. It sucks that you have to put on 4 coats!!! I've bought a white colour to try as an undercoat.. maybe that might reduce the number of coats? Do you know what the dupes are? I really like the colour.
