Nails of the Day – Essie Braziliant from the Summer 2011 Collection

This is such a summery colour. It’s a very vibrant coral orange with a shimmer that to my naked eye reflects pale pink but in the pictures seems to reflect more white. I was unable to capture the subtle pink sheen in my pictures at all…maybe I’m hallucinating it! This polish was very thick and quite goopy so I don’t know if that is a characteristic of this shade or if I just got a bum bottle. This shade seems to flatter me in some light but bring out the redness in my skin in others so the verdict is still out for me on this one.

    I don’t think it brings out the redness in your hands, but trust me I understand that pictures don’t always capture how things look in real life. I think if you can pull off an orange shade, than more power to you! It looks great on!

    Thanks Jenn! The longer I wore it this weekend the more I liked it ;-)
