Essie Nice is Nice
Just a quickie swatch today - and shock horror! It's not Shellac for once!?!
I got this Essie polish in last month's Pearl Lowe themed GlossyBox and I absolutely love it. So much so that I couldn't not share its lilac loveliness.
The name of this colour is Nice is Nice and it falls under Essie's 'Plums' category of colours. Essie themselves describe it as a "whimsical light lavender" - to me though, this is the exact shade I think of when someone talks about a 'lilac'.
It's a polish at the end of the day, so longevity it does not have in comparison to Shellac, but I think I got about 4 days wear before it chipped too much to continue. As a little tip, I often wear normal nail polishes over a base of CND Shellac in Beau or Negligee - that way the polish dries quicker, lasts a little longer and the gel base provides a smooth nail bed for application.
You can purchase Essie in the UK in most Boots or Superdrug stores for £7.99
Disclaimer - I received this polish from a GlossyBox. A service that I pay for with my own dollar but this box was free - I redeemed some GlossyDots (or loyalty points to most people) that I'd been hoarding.
