Bonjour pretties, how are you? So while I was looking through my latest blog posts for my July Roundup post I didn’t fail to notice that in the past few months my nail polish reviews have only been on Essie with a bit of sprinkle of Models Own. This is bizarre because I do love my OPI polishes but here I am today fixing this odd mistake. :)

I am usually quite a skeptic when it comes to lilac or purple nail polish shades. I feel like they just don’t suit me even though my skin is pink toned and has cool undertones to it. I’ve tried many lilac shades from different brands and the only two I like on me are Essie Lilacism (review here) and OPI Do You Lilac It?. When I saw Do You Lilac It? at Sephora last year I fell in love with it immediately. I was afraid that it might be yet another one of those purples that I will never wear but I decided to go for it regardless. Luckily, the minute I applied it I LOVED it and it’s now a proud member of my Top Summer Nail Polishes. (: Do You Lilac It? is this gorgeous light, sweet pastel-y purple shade, which is super pretty and especially great for the warmer months. It doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter in it and dries to a gorgeous glossy cream finish. As I said, it compliments my skin tone beautifully but I am not too sure how it will look on you if you have more distinct warmer tones to the skin. What I love about this little beaut is that it could be actually worn on your toes as well (if you’re a bit more daring), which I love. We all know that I tend to be a bit matchy-matchy sometimes so this is perfect for me haha.

I feel like the beauty world kind of splits up in two when it comes to nail polish formula. Some prefer OPI and some, like myself, are more of Essie girls. As for the formula of Do You Lilac It? I think it’s safe to say that it’s okay. It is a bit more watery for my liking, therefore I find that it applies a bit thin so you’ll definitely need at least two coats to get it fully opaque. I love it that this nail polish is not at all streaky or gloopy and it is completely hustle-free! :) It applies smoothly and dries out quickly so I don’t have to worry about messing my entire manicure up.

In a nutshell, I can only say that I adore this nail polish. It is such a gorgeous lilac shade, which compliments my skin tone beautifully and I love that I can wear it both on my nails and toes. It has a nice formula, which promises a quick and easy application and on top of that I get tons of compliments when I wear it. If you love rocking purple on your nails then I definitely recommend you trying Do You Lilac It?, it is such a gem! <3

Have you tried Do You Lilac It? Which is your favorite Purple / Lilac nail polish?

Lots of love,

  2. This is an absolutely lovely shade! I love deep purples compared to lilacs, as like you said, lilac is a weird color that just looks weird on me. xx

  4. I love the photos!
    This is such a pretty shade and I love the fact that it's a good toe colour too.
    I'm definitely more of an Essie girl like you but it's good to know that the formula of this polish isn't too bad because i've been thinking of adding some OPI polishes to my collection.

  8. It's (surprisingly) pretty - I've never been drawn towards lilac - makeup, clothing, you name it, but this looks very season appropriate and feminine. Lovely photos also - a pleasure to browse through the blog :)

  22. I love OPI as a nail varnish brand, I love how it applies onto the nail so well and you don't have to do many coats. This colour is lovely and I really like how you have photographed the nail varnish for this post :)
