L'Oreal Walk on the Beach Nail Color Swatch

Ooh, I love colors like this! Opaque, pale/ off-white cremes. L'Oreal's Walk on the Beach is a pale sand/ stone creme. I thought it would look just like Barielle's Beaches and Dreams polish, but that is much peachier. This shade was a little streaky on the first coat (when aren't pale cremes?), but everything looked just perfect on the second coat. This is a lovely work-appropriate neutral, but it is a trickier shade to wear, as it's less universally flattering than something like Beaches and Dreams. I do think this looks better on tanned/ darker skintones than paler ones (a couple of pale friends of mine commented that it made their hands and nails looks "yucky" or "dirtier"), but you never know how it will look on you until you try it. It's also a bit brighter on darker tones, while it's a soft, pale "greige" on lighter skintones. I do love this shade, but I like Barielle's B&D much more:
