|Essie Smokin' Hot|
This color does lean slightly toward purple, but it's far closer to colors like Zoya Petra (those two are nearly dupes, with Petra being just slightly lighter.) As Erin said, these are the new go-to neutrals for fall and, with so many to choose from, there's bound to be at least one for every skin tone.

Essie polishes are thin, but not too thin, so they apply easily and usually cover with two coats. I may be wrong on this, but I think that's why they wear so well. I wore this mani long enough to get bored with it, so I spiced it up with a layer of Ozotic 534 before I took it off.
|WOW! Look at those holos!|
The nice thing about neutrals is that you can play around with them and they allow the other polishes to shine — you can see what a great supporting player Smokin' Hot is for Ozotic 534!
