In Spanish, "Olé" is an expression of excitement - which is exactly what I was feeling when I put on Essie's new firey tangerine polish Olé Caliente from the Spring 2012 Navigate Her collection. Not only is this an amazing ruby tangerine shade, but this is one of the best formulas of any Essie nail polish I own. Olé Caliente was smooth and perfect in two coats. I'm in love!
Olé Caliente reminded me of another polish in my collection - OPI On Collins Ave from OPI's Spring 2009 South Beach collection. While it's hardly indistinguishable in photos, on the nail, OPI On Collins Ave is a touch more orange than Olé Caliente. Both are amazing cream polishes that cover well in two coats.
Here is Olé Caliente compared to OPI's Charged Up Cherry, a peachy coral. Charged Up Cherry looks very pink next to Olé Caliente.
Essie's Navigate Her collection is available in February. In New York City, Essie can be purchased at many locations including Beauty 35, Bed Bath and Beyond, Cosmetic Market, and Duane Reade.
