Essie - Meet Me At Sunset

Hi everyone!!  Happy Saturday!  I plan to get some extra sleep today and then I have plans with hubby and another couple.  Should be fun.

Today I'm sharing the first Essie polish I ever purchased.  Some time last spring, I was at a meeting at work.  Instead of paying attention to what was going on, I was admiring a woman's polish (this happens to me often, heehee).  She had a skin tone similar to mine and I just loved how the polished popped on her.  So of course, I had to find out what it was.  She couldn't remember the name of the polish (shame on her), but she told me it was Essie and I went on the hunt for it.  I spotted it at Target a few days later and it was mine ;0).  Turns out the name was Meet Me At Sunset, such a cute name.

Meet Me At Sunset is a vibrant deep orange, as described by Essie.  It was a part of Essie's Braziliant collection released in the summer of 2011.  It has a crelly finish and applies smoothly and evenly.  There was still a bit of VNL after 2 coats though. 

I love that this color commands attention, but it's not a neon.  For these pictures, I used OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, 2 coats of Meet Me At Sunset, and Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

I love, love, love this polish!!  Looking at the pictures, it reminds me of Avon Tangtastic which I wore a few weeks back.  This is definitely a deeper orange though.

What do you guys think of Meet Me At Sunset?  Do you own any polishes from the Braziliant collection?
