Today I have part 2 of the Essie Haute in the Heat Collection. If you missed it, part 1 with three polishes can be found here. I was extremely happy with the first part of this collection but the second half let me down. I did skip out on one polish called Roarange, which was a bright orange cream I believe. Let's get right to it. Comparisons are at the end.
First up is Urban Jungle which is a slightly pink tinted pale nude cream. I have mixed feelings on this one. I love the color but the formula left something to be desired. I thought the formula was streaky and gloopy and I needed three coats to even everything out. I will say that I have used this one twice in nail art, and I do like it for that use. Swatches below are with topcoat.
The last one I picked up from the collection is Fierce, No Fear, which is a medium cool chocolate brown cream. I'm usually up for a weird colored polish but this one just reminded me of mud. Sorry. The formula was a tad streaky. I ended up using two coats but I should have used three for fully opaque coverage. No topcoat on this one.
I thought that Urban Jungle would be a dead on dupe for OPI Don't Bossa Nova Me Around but it's much lighter. I also wanted to show both next to more traditional nude polishes so that you could see the pink tint they both have.
The only comparison I did from the first half was the deep red called Haute in the Heat. You can find that comparison here.
Again I thought Fierce, No Fear would be similar to something I had but it wasn't. A-taupe the Space Needle by OPI is much warmer and OPI You Don't Know Jacques is much darker but is in the same tone family. I actually thought Essie Fierce, No Fear would be similar to OPI Chocolate Moose but it wasn't even close enough to include a comparison.
There you have it guys, have a great Friday! Will you be picking up any polishes from this collection?
