Essie: Action

5 years ago

This is a polish from Essie`s new Summer Collection: Poppy Razzi. It contains 4 neon colors with names like Lights, Camera, Action, and Bazooka. This particular polish is Action. All of the polishes fall perfectly on trend with this years neons. Action is described as a vibrant light orange neon. That it is! It is a bit brighter than my camera was able to capture, though. My camera hates brights/neons. It dries with a semi-matte finish. I don`t particularly like that, so I did apply a layer of top coat. If you leave it alone it has a murky-matte look but when you apply a top coat it transforms it to a jelly finish. I do love a good jelly. The squishy look is very cool! I am wearing 2 coats in these photos, and as you can see, my nail line is still visible. I don`t mind this, as I think it is kind of refreshing (if that makes sense). If you dislike that you can apply more layers OR apply an opaque white base shade first. The white base will also make the orange more vibrant. It is kind of like underwear for your nails. The formulation was slightly tricky. Because it has a faster drying matte kind of finish, you have to be quick applying it to the nail or it will want to start drying on you before you`re done. You don`t have time to really play with and perfect the application. If you take too long, you will wind up with bald spots and ripples where it is pulling up the partially drying layers. I suggest leaving a bit more polish on the brush than what you normally would so that you have a SLIGHTLY thicker coat that won`t dry up as fast on you. I found that worked best for me. Surprisingly, I really enjoy this polish. I never used to care for oranges, but I`m 100% on board with neons. This one is actually quite a unique orange, too. It isn`t traffic cone orange like a lot of polish brands put out. If you are unsure about it, I`d still suggest trying it.. You never know.. you may end up loving it!
