Essie Braziliant

Hey Folks! I've heard orange is the color of this summer, and that Essie's Braziliant was the color to get! I finally picked one up, and it's BRIGHT! I am not a huge fan of oranges (well, I love the fruit, just not the color so much!) but I decided to give this one a try. Essie describes it as: "a hot orange with a touch of shimmer". This color is a true orange color that doesn't seem to lean too yellow, or too red. In the bottle, there is a definite pink sheen to it, but it doesn't really translate to the nail. The formula was a tad bit thick but some polish thinner would do the trick there. For the pictures below, I used 3 coats. Overall I like this color. I don't know how often I'll reach for it just because I prefer purples and pinks, but for a hot, summer's night out, this polish rocks!

  3. I don't like orange polish either- I don't think I own an orange polish...
    But this looks great on you and you can see the pink sheen in it.

  8. Thanks for all the comments, guys! And thanks for the award tag, Lacquered Lover!

    It's funny how a color that isn't really a "popular" one, found a way to become a polish everyone likes! :) It's really great for summer!
