Manicure: Estee Lauder nail polish in Hot Coral and flakie

Estee Lauder nail polish in Hot Coral swatch and review
I'm not a season/trend person and it took me a while to cotton on to the coral-in-summer-2013 trend. But I had received an Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer in Hot Coral for my birthday and fell in love with the super-fab packaging and the colour. It is my most expensive polish till date.

It dried to a shiny porcelain/glossy creme finish which I loved. I baked a cake for my Dad's birthday yesterday and despite the deseeding, peeling, chopping, mixing, beating, grating and cooking, the polish hasn't budged even at the tips - I've read a tonne of reviews where EL polishes have chipped within hours, so I suppose I was a bit lucky for once!
Hot Coral isn't as flaming as these pictures depict - it comes out a bit more reddish than it looks in the bottle. We've had the sun out for the first time since May end, and the colours look more neon. It is a lovely coral with red tones. Peach Avenue added to the orange-ness, though I can't seem to capture the flakes clearly on camera.
