Anyways, Essence Wake Up! is a really BAM! in-your-face type of color. It's the color of a red orange Crayola. A shiny, smooth, bright red orange Crayola crayon. :) I love it. It was hard to capture though, so I had to tweak my pictures a little bit to make the color more accurate. Let's have a lookie:
It's amazingly bright and in your face and I love it. It does look more red depending on the lighting, though. In my dining room, it looks more red. In my kitchen, it looks like this. I swear I'm not crazy, haha. OH! It's super pigmented too. I know a lot of people always say that and never show it, so I took a picture of it at one coat to show just how pigmented it is. Here you have it:
Look at that pigmentation! If I wanted to, I could have stopped at that one coat, but because I'm so set in my ways, I did two. This brand continues to amaze me, seriously. I have no complaints about any polish I have from them. Granted, I don't have many, but I couldn't have just gotten lucky with the few that I have.
What do you think? Do you like this color? And do you guys want the Mint Candy Apple comparisons? Let me know! Thanks for reading! :D
