Essie "Lilacism"

~*~Tip of the day~*~ always file your nails on one direction, try to avoid using a back and forth motion as it is more harsh on the nail!

Hello everyone!  The weather is getting more and more beautiful here in WI therefore putting me in the mood for spring and summer polishes!  The other day at the drugstore I decided to take a walk on the wild side and divert from OPI.  I picked up Essie's Lilacism.  I was super excited try out this color but was pretty disappointed ;(  I know a lot of people love Essie but it's just not for me!  

While I absolutely loved the lilac color the polish itself seems so dull compared to OPI it just doesn't have the right amount of shine, I also feel like this about some other Essie's that I own (then why do I keep buying them? LOL)  I got full coverage in three coats.  The brush was not the best and was difficult for me to work with (maybe it's just me)

So all in all after topcoat and cleanup it wasn't the worst, just not my favorite polish of all time :)
