There's something about a good neutral or pastel colored nail that makes me instantly feel a bit more polished and sophisticated. I would definitely call this color an "Olivia Pope" color. If you watch Scandal at all you know her nails are always a beautiful oval shape with a neutral but not boring nail polish color. Perfectly put together and classy.
Nail polish is something that makes me feel very feminine and a soft peach color like Essie A Crewed Interest is definitely a grown up girly color. It's much too pink to be a mannequin hands shade for me, but the tones in the polish still flatter my skin tone. If you're a similar skin tone as I am and are looking for a professional but non-sheer color for a job interview or other business setting, I would suggest checking this one out in person!
My swatch is three coats. Two are thin with dry time in between, and the third was a bit thicker to help even things out. I'm wearing OPI Nail Envy underneath A Crewed Interest and I topped my manicure off with NYC Grand Central Station.
Application was about what I expected it to be; A little streaky due to the pastel nature of the polish, but patience and a few thin coats mixed with one thicker top coat helped to even things out. Surprisingly the polish wasn't as thick as other pastels. I found it to be just smooth enough to control easily and if it hadn't been for the slight streakiness this polish would have been ace.
