Essie Orange, It's Obvious!

The name pretty much says it all. This is one of the brightest orange polishes you'll see. It's not quite neon but it still packs a considerable punch. I'm not typically a big fan of orange, (You may recall the only orange I've ever been completely nuts about is OPI On The Same Paige.) but I found Orange, It's Obvious! intriguing. I can't resist richly pigmented shades like this.



 
Pretty in your face, right? This says summer more than spring to me but that's okay. The formula on this is excellent; very smooth and doesn't have any of the little gripes I encountered with To Buy Or Not To Buy and A Crewed Interest. Orange, It's Obvious is virtually a one-coater but I used two just to cover up some patchiness. This polish also self-levels very well, which always earns a couple extra brownie points from me.

I'm surprised how much I like Orange, It's Obvious! I like my orange polishes more citrus-y than construction barrel orange and this is something nicely in between the two. It's bright but also has a richness to it. If you already have or are planning on getting OPI A Roll In The Hague from the Holland Collection, this is a touch darker than A Roll In The Hague, to the point where you probably don't NEED both. But hey, us polishaholics can rationalize even the slightest of differences haha. ("See? They're not 100% the same! I totally need to buy both!") I don't see myself becoming a full-on orange convert anytime soon but I'm willing to make the exception for a few shades here and there. I think it's safe to say this has joined the ranks of On The Same Paige in the "oranges I love" category.


Do you have a favorite orange? Have you picked up any of the Navigate Her polishes yet?
