Enjoy a Day in the Desert Sun Without the Heat!

China Glaze Desert Sun Nail Lacquer ($7.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delicious caramel.” It’s a burnt orange–but lightened, not rusty–very much caramel-colored, though a little warmer. China Glaze Orange You Hot is more orange and has shimmer. Zoya Arizona is lighter, brighter. Sinful Cloud 9 is brighter, more tangerine. China Glaze Papaya Punch is more orange, brighter.

This was another high quality shade from China Glaze’s On Safari collection! It’s opaque in two coats–almost one–and dried down a little faster than average and had a naturally glossy shine. It had a beautiful consistency that wasn’t too thick or too thin, so it flowed easily across the nail without pooling or bubbling. I usually get a week of wear out of China Glaze’s lacquers with no chips and minor tip wear.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

WoW! When I saw it on the main page I was like … MEH! I take it all back. That is a beautiful and unique colour. I will look through my stash but I don’t think I have anything like it. Another polish to add to my WishList 🙂

Orange isn’t my favorite color to begin with and this one’s just…doing nothing for me. It’d look really horrible against my skintone, too. Can’t love ’em all, I guess 😛
