Essie 'Off The Shoulder' & 'Fear & Desire' Nail Polishes

Hey everyone,
This isn't a creative nail art post, just showing you some of the Essie shades i've got from Fragrance Direct recently. As they are only £1.99 on Fragrance Direct, I think I must have bought about 8 shades in recent months. I absolutely love Essie and they're definitely one of my favourite nail varnishes.

So, I got 'Fear & Desire' on the left and 'Off The Shoulder' on the right. Fear & Desire, as you can see, is a deep, vibrant orange shade and I absolutely love it and 'Off The Shoulder' is a hot pink colour, which I also love!
I've never used orange nail polish before and didn't want to go straight to all orange nails so I just painted my accent nail orange and the rest pink just to test the colours. It was a lovely day yesterday and these nails were nice and summery to suit the weather :)
Like all my other Essie polishes, I just use two coats to get the colours fully opaque and then finish off with Seche Vite top coat to get that glossy gel-like finish. I really like the brushes with Essie nail polishes as they are so broad, you can pretty much do your whole nail in one stroke.
Just a quick post to show you these lovely shades and at the bargain price of £1.99, can't go wrong really! :)
Thanks for reading!
What is your favourite Essie shade?
