Swatch: Essie Fear and Desire

This is the last of my Essie Summer 2012 collection - a beautiful bright orange called Fear and Desire.  All the other polishes in this collection which I've swatched over the last week (Bikini So Teeny, Off The Shoulder, Mojito Madness and Cascade Cool) have applied really well and been opaque after two coats, so I was a little disappointed when this one went on rather streakily and needed a definite three coats.  However, it's a really summery colour (perfect for the gorgeous sunshine we're finally getting in London) so I can see it will get some outings in the next few months (possibly more frequently on my toes though).

What do you think? Is it an orange you'd wear? Which is your favourite of the summer 2012 collection?

Check back on the blog tomorrow because I have a post I'm pretty excited about (if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (both @fundaflawless), you may have seen a sneak peak...

  2. I'd totally wear this orange. It's very vibrant w/ out being bright. My favorite summer 2012 collection was the China Glaze Summer Neon's. I bought nearly the whole collection. There's only two that I didn't buy.

    1. I've seen the China Glaze ones on the internet but never in person - don't think it's particularly easy to get hold of them in the UK (admittedly I haven't actually tried) - but I'd love to get the blue neon one as there isn't one in the Models Own neons collection!
