Brain: Those colors don't look that special. You don't need any.
Me: But...pretty. Want.
Brain: I mean, they all probably have dupes. You don't need any.
Brain: Okay. Just one.
So, accordingly, I chose the one that probably has the greatest number of dupes. But I couldn't resist it. I just couldn't.
Such trouble photographing this one. The quality of the pictures below is terrible because the only way I could get the color to show up in a semi-decent way was to use extremely low light.
Looks like it leans pretty pink.
And this is how it turned out in natural light. Looks like it leans pretty orange. Waaaaaaaay too orange. It doesn't really look like this in reality, but it gives you an idea of how bright it is.
In reality Come Here! leans both orange and pink depending on the light source, but I would call the top three photos the most color accurate. It's a super bright, saturated, in-your-face coral. It just screamed to me, "please take me home!" I'm pretty sure that it also has neon pigment in it. The formula, which was very thick and goopy, seemed to have some neon qualities. I used two coats. But this polish isn't truly a neon and it also dries shiny, not matte. The color actually reminds me a lot of China Glaze Sneakerhead (one of my favorites) and the newer China Glaze Igniting Love (another favorite). According to this blog post, Come Here! also has two near-dupes in Essie's own lineup, Ole Caliente and Flirt.
I really. really. love this polish. After I bought it I couldn't wait to put it on. Yesterday I got so many compliments. A random lady on the subway asked me if it was a gel color, and if so where I got it done. Once I told her it was Essie and that I got it for $8 at a drug store, she said, "Who would spend $8 for nail polish?" Oh random subway lady, you have no idea.
Do I have too many reds? Do I own possible dupes for this color? Was I even aware of that when I bought the color? Yes. But...
The sweet siren song of semi-neon coral called to me and I was powerless against it. Regrets? None.
