Polka party! Meet me at sunset!

I’ve got new-to-me Essie polishes to show off!  Well, spotlight on Meet Me at Sunset, but I do use Russian Roulette, Avenue Maintain, and Limo-scene on my accent nail.  And look!  I changed my nail shape.  Not so sure I like it, but we’ll see.

I have to say, I kind of love Meet Me at Sunset!  A beautiful reddish orange, and it was opaque in two coats (no surprise for an Essie).  It’s bright, but not eye-burning like a lot of orange-toned polishes can be, so I feel like I can wear this more than once.  It kind of makes me wish that I hadn’t talked myself out of buying Clambake too.

As for the other three polishes used in this mani, well…they’re pretty too, even if they got a little upstaged by Meet Me at Sunset during my planning process.  I think that Avenue Maintain is my favorite out of the three, but that’s probably because I’m partial to blues.  I really want to try out Russian Roulette in a larger area too, because the swatches I’ve seen of it suggest that it is a gorgeous polish.

The accent nail design is something that’s been seen in spades, but I do love my dots.  And it did use all of the polishes I wanted to use, so why not?  I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of dotticures.
