NOTD: Essie Fear or Desire

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.

Have you tried Essie’s Fear or Desire?  If so, what were your thoughts?
