NOTD: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Mauve It + Milani Creme Brule

I got Sally Hansen Insta-Dri and Mauve It. Its a lovely pink, but something about it was off. So I put a coat of Milani Creme Brule (a pale pale Beige) over it and this is the result. I love the soft pink!!!!!! This is what I wanted Zoya Barbie to look like (which btw is way too cool toned for me)

Do you like this shade on my hands?
