China Glaze Orange You Hot? Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Orange You Hot? Nail Lacquer

Why, Yes, It’s Positively Scorching in here!

China Glaze Orange You Hot? Nail Lacquer ($3.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange with attention-grabbing gold glimmer.” It’s a bright tangerine orange with very fine gold shimmer. Honestly, that shimmer is nearly imperceptible under most lighting conditions. It’s there, and it has a subtle effect to add depth, but it’s not “attention-grabbing.” Zoya Arizona is lighter, more subdued, and a cream finish. Sinful Cloud 9 is a bit darker and has larger gold shimmer. China Glaze Papaya Punch has a cream finish and looks a shade darker. China Glaze Sun Worshipper is a bit brighter but also has a cream finish.

This shade was very nearly opaque after two coats, but at some angles, there’s a hint of visible nail line coming through. I liked the consistency on this shade better than several other shades in this collection, though it still seemed a bit thicker than the norm for China Glaze. It flowed a lot better, though, and I didn’t have trouble with it pooling along the sides. There were some noticeable brush strokes under bright light. I typically get a week of wear with China Glaze’s formula–no chips, just minor tip wear.

I think it would be a little better if the gold shimmer was more noticeable--it fades away quite a bit, so it almost makes the nail look textured and not necessarily in a good way.

    Nahhh!! I usually love orange nail polish but I’m not feeling this one..I’ll pass!

    Great summer color!

  4. I don’t think this shade is particularly flattering… A real creme version would have been better imo.

    You got rid of Livefyre for the comments? I’m glad you did, because the version 3 you had was constantly signing me up for followup comments against my will, and I had to manually go back to each post and click on the “follow” button twice to make it stop. Except, sometimes it didn’t stop…

    • That’s awful! I’m so sorry to hear about that :( We definitely had additional problems since upgrading to 3, though we reverted to our original system for numerous reasons. Livefyre’s customer service was really amazing, and they went out of their way to work with us, but in the end, it wasn’t meant to be.

  5. i just love orange polishes…especially bright, tangerine-y ones! :D

    I find that the formula in this collection is very inconsistent. Some are thick and gooey, and some very sheer.

    I swatched Orange You Hot? a couple of days ago, and mine was super thick and actually had lumps in it! I know the thickness can be fixed with some thinner, but I doubt it will do anything about the lumps. Such a shame because it’s such a bright and fun shade for summer.

  7. shudder..not for me.. The yellow was far prettier which is too bad because tangerine orange is an interesting colour. Eeek, but not for me.

    My eye is really drawn to such wonderfully bright oranges but NOT to actually wear. I feel so weird. I think it’s because I’d LOVE to wear it, but know that it really would be tragic if I did. LOL.

    I’ve never been a fan of neons, but these are actually very appealing(though, not for me). I think the microshimmer gives them a more current vibe, and are a huge step up from those in the 80s.

    Such a juicy summer shade!

    This is so close to something I’ve wanted for a while, but doesn’t quite hit it. I’ve wanted a bright, juicy orange like this for a while now (not neon), but with gold and orange shimmer. Kind of like a goldfish, but I can’t find such a colour anywhere. If the shimmer was more obvious, this could have been it.
