Rimmel Pop Apricot made better

I picked up Rimmel Pop Apricot for the gold glitter dust and for the pretty pink shrimp color. Once I got it on the nail, the glitter was just too sparse for my liking, so I added 1/2 tsp of TKB Gold Reflecks, and wow! Much improved!
This color is less orange and softer than pictures show...

I really love this color with my skin-tone. As my hands age, (note- I said hands here-the rest of me is having none of that aging business), they've taken on a yellowish haze, taking my once cool toned skin into the neutral zone. I'm finding that I am more attracted to cool based colors that have a warm flash, warm shimmer, warm reflect...etc. Not cool-not warm, but a neutral made by the marriage of opposing color temperatures. Am I making any sense?
I checked out the reviews of this color on MUA, and most said this was a 3 coater. I did 2, and got full coverage, probably due to the Gold Reflecks making the formula thicker.
I'm going to enjoy this color sans art today, and perhaps do some Konad/fauxnad tonight.

I don't like this color. It's too coral-y... Maybe I don't like it, because this is an old lady's color where I live.
I do like the gold sparkle though and your hands look lovely!
