Here’s another neon from the China Glaze Sunsational collection!
Sun of a Peach is a neon pastel peach, and a great unique colour! I like the name too, haha.
The formula is a bit difficult to work with, but not really worse than other neons or pastels.
I used three coats to even everything out. The photos include base coat and top coat.
I think the colour is certainly worth putting up with the neon formula. With flash:

And here is a nail wheel comparison with other peaches, neon and non-neon, and some that lean more towards coral. The photo was taken with flash, but somehow the polishes still look a bit darker than they do in real life. So, word of warning that these aren’t colour accurate, but give a good indication of the relative differences in these polishes!
None of these are close to Sun of a Peach; the most similar are Kleancolor Mango which is darker and much less bright, and oldie NYX Amazon which is a translucent jelly with iridescent glitter, however. But as you can see there are some dupes and near-dupes among the other polishes – notably China Glaze Peachy Keen and Misa Shake it to the Samba which are basically identical. Cult Nails Scandalous is also similar to OPI Apricotcha Cheating, and Kleancolor Pastel Orange to Illamasqua Purity, but those pairs aren’t close enough to be dupes.

Hi Vegan Claws! I’m dithering over buying Sun of a Peach – I have Kleancolor’s Mango. Is Sun of a Peach really different enough from Mango to warrant me buying it too? Thanks!
Hi! Yes, definitely different enough in my opinion! Mango has that almost-neon tone, but Sun of a Peach is more of a super-bright glowing neon, plus has the pastel base that makes it significantly lighter as well as brighter. It looks more different IRL than in my photo. I’m out right now, but if it’s still sunny when I get home I’ll try to get a decent sun pic of the comparison and add it to the post! 🙂
[…] Today I have one of my favourite creme polishes to show you, NCLA Poolside Party, All Eyes On Me. One reason I love this so much is the uniqueness of the almost-neon pastel peach shade. I previously showed it in a swatch wheel comparison here. […]
