This is the third polish I picked up from Essie’s summer collection. Orange is big this year, and this is a good one! When I first saw pictures of this, I thought it would be close to Zoya Arizona, but Arizona is much lighter and more yellow. Compared to the other oranges I have (most of which came out recently), this one is surprisingly unique. It is does not lean yellow or red, and it’s not neon, but it’s not dusty looking either.
My camera usually hates oranges (it makes them red), but I was able to capture this one pretty accurately. It is maybe a tad lighter in real life.
This is two coats with no topcoat. The formula on this was excellent, but it did stain my skin a lot, so be careful when applying.
If you like oranges, Fear or Desire is a must-have in my book, especially if you’re not quite ready to venture into neon territory this summer.
What’s your favorite orange polish?
