Essie Fifth Avenue

Happy Valentine's Day! The colour red is synonymous with romance, and Essie's Fifth Avenue has to be the perfect orange-red shade! It reminds me so much of MAC's Lady Danger lipstick - if you're up for a Mad Men look wear them together. Betty Draper would.

I haven't always been impressed with Essie nail polishes. The polish Fiji failed with its streaky formula. Aside from that, I like the brand - the price point, brush, colour selection and availability.

Two coats was all I did, and you could even skip a top coat - these dry shiny. The orange base is still flattering on my skin tone - although I bet it will look even better in the summer with a tan!

What are you wearing on your nails right now?
