Essie launched their Resort Collection this year and I picked up a few pretties. I couldn't leave Lapis Of Luxury out! Let's take a look at the blue of this collection.
Essie Lapis Of Luxury, three coats in daylight. Lapis Of Luxury is a pastel-ish light blue creme. In my eye, it's not a true pastel, but it's not a true light blue either. It's somewhere in between. I feel a little hint of periwinkle in there somewhere too..
It's such a soothing color. It's one of those colors that would never look boring on my nails, not to me at least.
Application was good. The Essie brush is a little thin for my liking, but easy to work with. The polish went on a bit streaky at the first coat, but all evened out in three coats to opacity. Drying time was good - the polish was dry when I took pictures of it.
Since I love the combination between these kind of colors and silver, I did a little stamping.
Essie Lapis Of Luxury, three coats, stamped with China Glaze Millennium and imageplate M73. M73 still has my favorite design and I use it when I can :) I love the contrast in these, although it would have looked even better when Lapis Of Luxury was a tad darker.
Thanks for stopping by!
