As much as I like orange and orange-toned colors, it isn’t a good match for my skin tone, so I have a limited choice of coral polishes. “off to miami” is one of the few. It looked a lot more pink in the bottle then it does on my nails. Actually, it turned more orange the more coats I put on, which was weird (and a bit disappointing).
I also needed three coats to be perfectly happy with it, but with very carefull application (and if you are not that picky 😉 ) two might work out as well.
Apart from that, it is a regular essence cream polish, and drying time was ok.
For the nail art I simply taped off stripes of various thickness and painted one very thick coat.
Base coat: essie Nourish Me
Used color: essence colour & go 109 off to miami! (three coats on regular nails, one thick coat on accent nail)
Top coat: Seche Vite
