The Nail File #19: Essie Lilacism
Saturday, 29 June 2013
I feel bad penning a post about nail Essie nail polishes, lazy beauty blogging at its best because what positive adjective can I use to describe them that I haven't used before. I am running out of ways to express my love for them. Let me try.
I love how accessible and readily available they are. Not a trip to Boots goes by without me perusing the Essie stand. Even if I did just go in for cotton wool...They are not too expensive at a reasonable £7.99. I like these, the diffusion line brushes that are wider so make for easier application. I find the older thinner brushes too fiddly. I like the formula and consistency. Aside from the paler shades, they are generally opaque in two coats. Unlike some other brands (that I won't name, always complain about yet keep buying, so much so that I have a collection on them here) the longevity is super impressive too. I get a good few days before there are even signs of tip wear, despite my constant clattering away on the keyboard.
Essie Lilacism is no exception. This is a gorgeous creamy almost pastel, true lilac shade. Oh Essie, thank you for your never-ending parade of pretty, I heart you so!
