Looking for a bright orange to rock this summer? Essie’s got the perfect one.
Fresh from their summer 2012 collection, Fear or Desire is a bright orange shade guaranteed to make your nails pop. This is the first shade I tried from their new collection because when it comes down to it, I just have a soft spot for orange. I love myself a bright colour and nothing is more bright that I can think of other than orange. To me, this shade has more tangerine undertones but it’s really gorgeous when applied on.
I applied Seche Vite base coat underneath with OPI’s Top Coat on top. I used two layers to get it opaque. Like other Essie polishes that I have tried, they aren’t the best for long-lasting wear, with minor chipping after one day. I didn’t mind though because I had all the other colours from the collection to try out as well and I’m quite impatient so I wanted to take it off anyways so I could try the other shades.
This colour really reminds me of either a parrot or a salsa; it’s a fun shade that is so perfect for summer.
