It may be the end of the summer but is it really too late to offer my thoughts on the Essie summer collection? Perhaps, but I finally used my bottle of Haute in the Heat today and and I just had to share!
Earlier this summer I picked up Strut Your Stuff and Ruffles & Feathers. Both are beautiful and I've used each a few times this summer. See my Instagram for some swatches.
Haute in the Heat is described as an unforgettable hot guava, but to me its more of a hot raspberry. Sometimes Essie polishes don't have the best formulas, but this one was great. Totally opaque in two thin coats (though it was almost a 1 coat wonder). It was not streaky and leveled out nicely. Throw on a coat of Rica Glossy Glam top coat and I was out the door for dinner on our last night of vacation. The mani color fit right in - don't you think?
