This colour is a real departure for me. It is a (very) pale lavender with micro shimmer. In the bottle the blue and silver specks create a beautiful effect so I was excited to see this recreated on the nails.
This is not my first bottle of Essie polished so I was really surprised at how streaky this product is. Even with three coats (see pic below) this polish just does not level out. On top of that, the micro shimmer particles that you see in the bottle are not very visible on the nails so the shimmer does not help the streakiness.
Despite all of that… from afar I really like the look of this colour on my short nails. It really pretty… but is is sooooo streaky. So in answer to the question – to buy or not to buy? I have would have to say no. Dont buy it. There are lots of shades like this whether your budget is high or low.
Essie is available from Boots, Superdrug and other authorised stockists. It retails for £7.99
