I usually equate Essie California Coral with summer, as I only wear it during the hot months. And in fact, up till now, it has exclusively been a pedicure colour for me. So today I'm mixing things up: California Coral in April and on my fingernails instead! I know, I know... I really do live life dangerously, don't I?
California Coral is a bright and punchy coral shade which leans a little on the orange side (in my opinion). It kind of reminds me of Nicole by OPI The Right Thing, though The Right Thing is more red. Eithery way, a polish like this definitely eye-catching and the perfect complement to monochromatic outfits.
I know some people aren't fans of Essie's formula because it can be difficult to work with. However, I loveeee Essie because it usually dries super shiny, and California Coral is no exception. Now I really can't wait till summer!
