Essie Lilacism Nail Polish: Review and Photos

Essie Lilacism Nail Polish

Hello beautiful ladies! If you saw my most recent Beauty Haul post you may know that I picked up some really lovely spring nail polishes from Essie recently and I was super excited to try them all out as soon as possible. What happened, however, was that I painted my nails with Essie Lilacism first and I haven’t tried any of the others later haha! I just fell in love with Lilacism so much that I reapplied it several times in a row. I think that it’s safe to say that Lilasicsm has become my absolute favorite nail polish for Spring2013 and I wanted to share it with you! :)

I have always related spring with pastel colors. Be it for clothes, accessories, makeup or nail polishes, when I think ‘Spring’ pretty pastels pop into my mind. With that being said, with the first rays of spring sunshine I immediately went pastel-crazy and I knew wanted some new nail polishes! When I went to my local drugstore and I saw Essie Lilacism it basically screamed ‘Spring’ at me (true story) and I instantly picked it up. I’ve been seeing swatches of Lilacism on all over the Internet but honestly the shade is ever prettier in person! It is this beautiful light dusty lilac color with blue undertones to it and has gorgeous glossy cream finish. It looks incredibly feminine and elegant and as if this wasn’t enough – it makes my hands SO tanned, which I adore! :)

I am a total Essie girl! I like OPI a lot as well, but I feel like Essie’s formula is much better for my nails. Lilacism definitely didn’t disappoint in that department! It has incredible pigmentation and I only need two coats to get full opacity. I noticed that Lilacism is a little bit more watery than I am normally used with Essie, but honestly it doesn’t bother be because it dries pretty quickly. This nail polish lasted on my nail for about four days without chipping and with minimal tip wear (without top coat), which I quite impressive! <3 Lilacism applies like charm; it slides on the nails so easily and the amazing medium-sized brush allows you great control over the application!

Overall, I am extremely happy with this nail polish! The shade is to die for and the formula is outstanding! If you like pastel nail polishes I definitely recommend you check Lilacism out!
If you’d like to get this nail polish you can do so here! <3

Have you tried Lilacism before? Which is your go-to spring nail polish? :)

Lots of love,
Andrea

  15. This is such a pretty colour! I picked up an MUA polish in a similar shade for £1 and it was lovely but it dried up so quickly - I guess you get what you pay for! I'll keep my eye out for this one instead!

  46. I STILL haven't bought an essie polish, your review has basically convinced me that I need to take the polish plunge and try one. Lilac totally screams spring I agree, it's on everyone's nails, clothes and hair at the moment! My go to nail polish for spring is a barry m gelly in blueberry or lychee :)xo

  61. Whatttt!! This is actually one of my favourite colors since discovering it in December. My cousin and I have a penchant for nail polish, so the minute I caught site of this light lavender/lilac color I had to jump on it. Don't you think it's so perfect?! I'm going to go take it out right now and change up my nail color. Woohoo!
