it's a pale lilac colour. Opaque in 2-3 coats.. I didn't find it to be greyish blue or anything..it's a very nude shade, not very flashy.. I wish it had some more colour to make it bright.. if u r looking for nude lilac shade this is it.
I thought this colour was supposed to have more of a lilac tint to it, and it does in some lighting, e.g. warmer lighting. But in other light, it looks like a greyish-blue on my skin colour... very weird. It's still a nice colour though, with a great formula; only needed 2 coats to get to opacity.
I'm not really sure what's up with this, but my bottle of polish is turning blue! I've had this for about a year now, and it now looks straight up blue. No more traces of purple/lilac. It's fine for what it is, but definitely strange! Formula is great for a light opaque colour, but I still wish Essie would change their brushes to a wider and softer brush! I'm loyal to Essie for the formulas and high shine, but a change to the brush would make these light colours SOOOO much easier to apply without pulling the colour up (Fiji is the worst for this!)
This goes on perfectly opaque in 2 coats. It dries well with seche vite top coat and stays on well too - I've had it on for 4 days now and it still looks great. The best thing about it is the delicate lilac colour - it is not blue or grey, just perfect soft lilac that isn't chalky or white. Very happy with this purchase!
