Essie Ole Caliente

Essie Ole Caliente from the Spring 2012 Navigate Her collection

Warm weathers always make me reach for colors like this! When I think of summery weather, it's nearly impossible not to picture cute coral pedicures and manicures. I will spare you pictures of my toes and instead share this color as a lovely manicure. I think we'll all be happier that way.
Essie Ole Caliente is a bright coral leaning red creme- the name makes me think of hot images, and this color reminds me of a combination of a sizzling orange flame and spicy red pepper. It is borderline neon, but doesn't quite cross that line of in your face brightness. This creme was pretty easy to apply, and while the first coat was a bit streaky, everything was pleasantly opaque by the second coat. I generally prefer a wider brush as well, such as OPI, but the flexibility of the bristles on the Essie brush made it very easy to use.
I think this is a great polish to have in your stash, especially for summer. Though it isn't especially unique, it's certainly worth looking at if you've been on the hunt for the perfect coral polish.
