Essie-Meet Me At Sunset

I found this at Walgreens the other day for 50% off. I don't know why this was 50% off and the rest of the Braziliant collection wasn't, but oh well. My gain. Thanks Walgreens.
Meet Me At Sunset is a red leaning orange creme that is perfect all the way around. And I mean perfect. I'm wearing one coat and it looks almost jellyish to the eye. It went on smoothly and it wasn't too thick. Actually, I thought it was more thin, but I still got great coverage with it.
This didn't take all that long to dry. Now, I am wearing one coat so maybe that's why. I have no idea how long two or three coats will be. Also with the one coat thing, if you hate VNL then prepare for two or three coats. I've said this plenty of times, but I don't mind VNL so I'm okay with it. But if it's not even an option for you, prepare for more coats.

I actually have two other Essie polishes (from their Spring collection last year) and I wasn't all that impressed with them. This has changed my mind. I love MMAS. I might have to fork over retail price to get the other two colors from this collection I want. It's that good. This has taken my love for oranges this year to a new level.


  1. I love this! And I think it looks really good at one coat.

  2. One coat is definitely good enough. But I totally get why some would want to add a second or third.

  3. Pretty! I didn't get this one yet, but it's really a great color! Thanks for sharing!
