Essie Nail Lacquer in Fifth Avenue is a lovely orange red, almost the lipstick version of MAC Lady Danger. It is quite a thin polish, that applies very smoothly and dries quite quickly.
I really love the colour, and this is the second polish that I picked up as a possibility for as my Christmas Day nails this year. Being more of an orange red than Essie A List, Essie Nail Lacquer in Fifth Avenue is more summery, perfect for an Australian Christmas. It also means that you could get away with wearing a darker red lipstick, like MAC Russian Red (one of my favourite Christmas red lipsticks, for the long lastingness over Christmas dinner), without looking too matchy-matchy.
I still haven't decided between the two polishes which one will win for Christmas Day, but I have a little bit of an inkling. Which one do you like more for Christmas Day nails?
