At first glance Summer Sunset doesn’t look like anything special. But I really liked the name. Plus I was planning on wearing a blue and teal dress and thought this would look good with that color palette. As it turned out, I was pleasantly surprised once I got Summer Sunset on my nails!
Summer Sunset is an orange leaning coral with gorgeous golden shimmer. In the bottle I didn’t notice the shimmer but it really comes out on the nail.
The formula is a tad bit thin but not difficult to work with. I used three coats in my swatches. It’s also worth noting I thought perhaps Summer Sunset might be a neon but I’m happy to report that it is not.
This polish really does remind me of a summer sunset! This one, in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, in particular. This is going to be a great shade for the spring and summer. My last few pedicures have been with bondi New York Strawberry Fields but I think next time I will give Summer Sunset a try.
I wore Summer Sunset as an accent nail with Essie First Timer and really loved the two colors together. There are swatches of that manicure below the jump along with additional swatches of Summer Sunset. Make sure to check out the macro shots! The shimmer really is gorgeous.
This is just one of the three new polishes Pixi released for Summer 2013. Now I’m really looking forward to trying the others!
