Essie - Fear or Desire

Hi everyone!!

I have another polish from the Essie Summer Collection to share with you.  This was one of the bottles in the set I received in @aveyou's giveaway on Instagram.

Fear or Desire isn't a polish I would have picked up for myself because it's a yellow-toned orange and you guys know I don't do yellow or anything close to it.  However, I was happy to give it a try.  Application was a pain with this one and honestly, I thought I would take it off right away.  It was so streaky when applying it, with both the first and second coat.  But after I waited a few minutes, it evened out.  Thank goodness!

These pics are with no top coat:

See how it dries to a beautiful shine.  I was very happy about that.  It did dry a bit darker than I expected, but I like it that way.  This is such a fun summer color.

What do you think of Fear or Desire?  Do you plan to pick it up?

  3. This is funny because I wore an Essie orange yesterday and will post it today on the blog. I don't usually get oranges either, but I won that one in a contest. It's more of a red orange so maybe you would like it. But I think this one looks great on you! And a really fun color!

  8. I am missing out. I don't have a data plan so no Instagram and I never ever see the specials Zoya has that come and go on FB! I had not seen this shade on any displays..thinking it's that one Essie collection that never came into my area - life in a rural area!
