Essie 'Fear & Desire'

My love for nail polish is forever growing so I recently made a order with Fragrance Direct and ordered some goodies!
Essie polishes are very hyped up in the beauty community and they retail at £7.99 in Superdrug and Boots but Fragrance Direct stock them for £1.99 each, such a bargain!
I ordered the colour 'Fear and Desire' as I wanted a bright bold colour for summer and when I saw this colour, I fell in love. I only have one other Essie polish called 'Sugar Daddy' which I got in a Glossybox but I don't get on well with as its so light and my nails need about 5 coats to get the desired colour. I was going to get 'Bikini So Teeney' which is very popular but I am going to order it next time!
Anywho, the first thing I love is the colour. On the website it looks much more like a paler orange but i'm glad that its a bolder colour. I'm not the type of person to match my nails to an outfit so I will wear this colour with a black outfit or with a green t-shirt, it doesn't bother me.
The next thing I love is the pigmentation of the polish. I can get away with wearing one coat if I'm in a hurry but I love the intensity of two coats. And it gives a glossy look on the nails.
The delivery came within 2 days and I ordered at 8pm one night and got standard order so it came so quickly!

I can't wait to order more Essie nail polishes from Fragrance direct as well as more goodies!

Have you used Fragrance Direct before and what do you think of them?
