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.
