Essie Fear & Desire Review
Essie make such beautiful colours and their red/pink/coral offerings are some of their nicest. But I think this bright beauty may be one of my favourites of theirs. A bright, true orange polish from the 2012 ‘Bikini So Teeny’ collection.
This only needed 2 coats which I was surprised at, for some reason I thought it was going to be streaky and patchy. It does dry a bit darker on the nails than it looks in the bottle. This is going to be my summer colour, I can tell.
If you’re swooning over this polish as much as me, you can buy it HERE.
Kinetics Orange Pop Review
I bought this in Dubai on my last holiday when it was sunny and hot and all I wanted was a neon polish on my fingers. And this was perfect.
Back in the cold, miserable UK it seems slightly too bright… but I still love it. I did have to do a base coat of white polish before painting my nails, and this needed 3 coats of colour. It took quite a long time to dry, even with Seche Vite which is a definite no-no for me. Also… I only noticed when I was taking these photos that it says ‘for artifical nails only’. What a strange thing to say, I’ve never seen that before. Have you? Does it mean that it’s not safe/hasn’t been tested on natural nails? *panics slightly* Well, I wore this for about a week and didn’t see or feel anything of concern.
This is not the best polish I’ve ever tried, but it fulfilled my holiday neon craving so I’m happy!\
OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours
This is another polish from OPI’s Euro Centrale collection (I will link my other reviews at the bottom of this post so you can see the other beauties in this range).
OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours is a bright, orangey-red creme with a subtle light shimmer that I didn’t notice in the bottle. This is two coats of polish topped with Seche Vite. It was quite a thick formula but Seche Vite helped it to dry in no time.
You purchase this gorgeous polish HERE.

Lac Attack Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
This stunning nail polish is the beautifully bright Lac Attack Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. This is a clear-based polish with varying sizes of amazing glitter in orange, yellow, red and gold. I am in love with the colour combination here. Also, full disclosure, I have never really seen the appeal of bar glitter but I LOVE it in this.
