One of the most basic nail polish colors is a light, baby pink. The glory of the light pink is that it goes with virtually everything: it’s neutral enough to wear with bold colors, and simple enough to wear as part of a muted wardrobe (especially if you’re working in a place that has strict nail polish standards). Color Street Charleston Blush is the perfect color for anyone and everyone.
Color Street Charleston Blush Overview
Color Street Charleston Blush is an interesting color – it appears as a gentle baby pink in the package, but changes in intensity against skin tone. When I wear Charleston Blush, I find that it looks brighter against my skin tone; like it leans towards a bubble gum pink. In the beginning days of Color Street, this was one of the most “nude” colors that they had available, but I think that the expansion of available nude colors, including It’s a Jersey Shore Thing, Giza Sands, and Soleil Ballet has helped push this pink firmly into the world of pink instead of pretending to be a nude.
Color Street Charleston Blush is perfect for baby showers, gender reveals, or any time when you want a light pink that is going to lean more neutral.
Color Street Charleston Blush Swatches
And here we go – time for some Color Street Charleston Blush swatches! Here’s a photo against the Color Street packaging – I find that this is one of the colors that looks the LEAST similar to the packaging vs on the nails themselves. I wanted you to be able to see and compare.
It’s just understated and classy – if your workplace is picky about nail polish colors, this is a great option for you.
Color Street Charleston Blush Review
Can we have some real talk? Light-colored Color Street solids are more high maintenance, in my opinion. They aren’t the easiest ones to start out with. However, once you get the hang of it, they’re going to look REAL GOOD. I find that any imperfections, whether it be in your nail itself (like my poor ridged thumbnail), or in your application (still crying over not smoothing out all those minute wrinkles). The light colored solids, as wonderful as they are, are truthfully not my favorite just because they are less forgiving.
But that’s ok – I dig those brighter colors, and admire the application on all those who LOVE colors like Color Street Charleston Blush!
If you’ve ever had trouble putting on Color Street solids, let me give you some pro tips here.
- You don’t NEED special tools to apply solids, but a rubber tipped cuticle pusher will make it exponentially easier. You can buy a multi-pack HERE from Amazon.
- If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again! You have enough strips in each packet to give it a second go. Take advantage of that!
- Make sure your nails are completely clean. If you have any residue from a previous manicure, it will show through.
