This week's installment of "Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!" calls for all those lovely shades of lilac! As you can probably imagine, this is the perfect theme for me. I had a bit of a hard time choosing from my approximately 1263051636 lilac/lavender polishes, but in the end, I was quite satisfied with my pick, so let's see it!
Three coats with top coat. I don't know why, but with essie crèmes I often need three coats to even the surface out. They seem to like to slip over my ridges more than other crème polishes... Anyway, this has blue shimmer which you can hardly see, although it's quite obvious in the bottle IRL. It might be more obvious with more light or sunshine hitting it, but I had to take these photos on an overcast day. This was part of essie's Navigate Her collection for spring 2012, by the way.
