Lime Crime Peaches Cream Swatch/Review

Have you heard of Lime Crime?  You may know them from their bright and beautiful ads featuring women with neon lips, hair, eye shadow, and nails.  Just Google "Lime Crime" and you'll see what I mean.  I love their whole look - from their ads, to their packaging, to their website - it just draws me in. Of course, I had to try their nail polish.  The polishes I wanted were out-of-stock for quite a while, but you better believe I was stalking their site in order to catch the re-stock.  Once they re-stocked, I limited myself to two (so hard).  Of course, I had to get the green one (Pastelchio) and I decided on this creamy neon peachy orange - Peaches <3 Cream.

I couldn't believe how hard this polish was to photograph.  It is described on the Lime Crime site as a neon peach, so that would explain why.  Neons are my worst enemy when it comes to getting a true-to-color picture.  Just look at these pics...none of them are the same - they look like three different nail polishes:(
Even though neon polishes are my enemy for blogging, they are my best friend on the nails.

Formula wise, Peaches <3 Cream was pretty thick and a little tricky to work with.  The thickness makes this polish completely opaque in two coats, which is good. Unlike most neon polishes, the formula of Peaches <3 Cream is creamy.  You don't have to use a white base, and it doesn't end up matte.  These pictures don't do this polish justice.  I checked for other swatches online and it looks like lots of people have issues with capturing the neon-ness.  It's soooo bright, bold, and beautiful! An added bonus, it makes me look tan.  
Lime Crime Peaches Cream
Lime Crime polishes are very affordable at $5.99/bottle.  I love all of the colors and hope to collect them all at some point.  I think Lavendairy will be my next purchase.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  I plan to plant some flowers now that it's warm and sunny.

  2. Wow this is such a pretty shade, and it looks great on you! It looks so juicy and creamy. Can't wait to see Pistelchio!

    These are affordable, but when you tack on the $5.99 shipping price onto the polish, it's not so cheap after all! Wish we could get them in store somewhere.

    1. I know, shipping is a problem. But I guess when you get more than one polish, it makes it a little better. But yeah, you could get another polish for the price of shipping.

    1. I've heard it stains, but that's okay, I cover it up with polish anyway:)

  4. This looks pretty on you. The pics are great...I don't think it looks like 3 different colors. ;)

  5. Those are the two I've been stocking forever!! Your pics are awesome and make me yearn and pine even more. Of course I'm on a no buy. Because that's just how it goes right? Love, love, love, LOVE this.

    1. How long are you on a no-buy for? I am thinking about trying it - I never have before.

    2. SUPPOSED to be for this month. Erm....aside from my Glitter Guilty box. Sort of hooked on that. I may have had a friend pick up Revlon jellies after Liesl did her guest post. But it was only because they were such a good deal! I couldn't resist. So you know...other then that. Ok I'm terrible at this.

  9. I bought the entire set the first time they became available at Harlow last year. I use them all a lot.

  10. Should have said I use them a lot for undies! I'm wondering if they have changed the formula a bit, because mine looks much more pastel? Hmmm...

    1. Mine is pretty bright! It turned up pastel in some of of the pictures, but it is sooo bright in person.

  11. This is a gorgeous color. I'll add Lime Crime to my must-try list!

  12. This looks insanely awesome on you! I have this on my "wish list" board on pinterest...along with Julep Hayden. They do look close in color... not sure if they are dupes though?!? IDK..I just know I am dieing for them both! :)

  14. I had no idea these were so affordable. That color looks great on you! I love that you said it makes you look tan. I probably need that being the daughter of a red head. The sun and I have a love/hate relationship when it comes to tanning.

    1. I know, $5.99 sounds great. Too bad there is shipping...but if you get a few, then it makes it more worth it.

  17. Hi Essie, oh you got one of the two Lime Crimes I did not buy!!! Peaches Cream looks absolutely drop dead beautiful gorgeous on you!!!! And what great pictures you have posted (yes, I am totally with Melissa)!!! I have made the same experience with regard to application with all Lime Crimes I have, not the easiest polishes to apply. And Lavendairy for sure is an Essie polish - looking forward to seeing it on your nails!!!! Hope you found time to plant your flowers - I have moved my two Olive Trees into the garden this weekend. I got them at Mark's Memorial Service and kept them in my Condo for a while but next to the incredible mess they give with all their falling leaves, they are not made to be kept indoors permanently - they have now a happy place in the sun in our front yard :-)!!!

  20. Neons are just so hard to photograph, but gorgeous in person! I love this one on you, Essie! It reminds me of orange creme savers. And yay that it doesn't require a white base first. :D
