As I’m currently in New York, no other nail polish would be more appropriate. Essie “Fifth Avenue” is a vibrant, orangey red and reminds me of Tom Ford Wild Ginger lipstick. 

It’s happy, it’s chic and well, it’s very New York. Definitely a classic to add to your collection!

    This is my favourite nail polish ever. I wear it every summer. It’s the only nail polish I’ve finished and bought again. Enjoy New York!

    How fitting! Such a vibrant shade, this would make a great Christmas stocking gift (dare I say it?) x

    I love Fifth Avenue! I’m a big fan of orangey reds – Sephora Formula X in Uber and the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Passion are great alternatives x

    Even though it’s a summery shade I can definitely see myself wearing it in the autumn as well. In love with this nailpolish :)

    I wore this nail polish for my 21st, a gorgeous colour that actually suits my olive skin tone BUT it’s such a nightmare to remove…it bleeds and stains everywhere..does anyone else have this problem?

  • Mandy Bajwa
  • Cashmere Lace

    That’s definitely a gorgeous shade. The perfect orange/red! Essie always sucks me in with these gorgeous colors, but then I get annoyed how easily the polish chips on me. Seriously wanting this but seriously trying to resist ;)

    I’m yet to try any of the Essie polishes. Might have to give one a go soon!

  • Eleri Roberts

    What a gorgeous shade, Katie Rimmel London’s Hip Hop is super similar if you fancy trying a drugstore alternative! I’m sure the lovely VDM has mentioned it before so you may have already tried it! xx

    Looks really pretty on you. I am a sucker for matching nail polish names to occasions, i.e. I had to wear Catrice “Newly wed” during my honeymoon, even though it kept chipping on me like nobodies business…

  • Sophia Charles

    Such a gorgeous bright red!
