Navigate Her, Ole Caliente & Orange, It's Obvious

Morning Everyone!

Today I’ve got my picks from the Spring 2012 Essie Navigate Her Collection. As soon as I saw these polishes I knew I had to have them. I’ve featured my 3 picks here and there online but I realized that I hadn’t show you all true swatches of the collection. So just in case you missed the swatches on 9304834.3 other blogs by now, I’ll add mine to the mix. 😉


Orange, It’s Obvious!

Orange, It's Obvious 1
Orange, It's Obvious 2
Orange, It’s Obvious! is a vivid tangerine orange creme and we’re in love. This is definitely one of the colors that made me fall in love with the Essie Spring 2012 collection.

This is the color orange. This is me. We’re married. 😛

I used 2 coats here. Orange, It’s Obvious! is very pigmented. But it also stains, so double up on your base coat and be careful with removal if you don’t want ‘cheetos fingers‘.

Olé Caliente

Ole Caliente 1
Ole Caliente 2
Olé Caliente is a bright red coral creme that leans orange on my skintone. I love it! The name is perfect because it reminds me of red chilis and Sriracha hot sauce. I used 2 coats here, another super pigmented and easy formula. No staining with this one though. ^_^

Navigate Her

Navigate Her 1
Navigate Her was the one that I NEEDED. Even if I couldn’t find the other two on my wishlist, owning Navigate Her was a necessity for me. This is the perfect non-pastel pistachio green creme that I was missing from my collection. I love it! The formula was thin and a little streaky, so 3 coats were necessary in order to level everything out. WORTH IT!

Final Thoughts:

I positively love all 3 of my picks from the Navigate Her Collection. If you want to see the entire 6 polish set, you can check out great swatches by Ommorphia Beauty Bar, Scrangie, and The PolishAholic. 😀

Purchase Info:

I found the Navigate Her Collection at my local Target store. They usually retail at $8.00 per .46 fl oz bottle of polish (I paid $7.49).
