Essie Smokin' Hot is, in my eyes, a purple creme with grey and brown tones. It's very hard to pinpoint the color since it never quite stays the same depending on lighting. I used 2 coats. The formula was wonderful - so easy to apply and control! Essie has really improved their formula. I'm seriously impressed! It dried shiny, but I still used a top coat.
Thanks for looking! See you on the other side of the day!
