Happy Saturday! Hope your Saturday is a calm as the color I have for you today. Essie To Buy, Or Not To Buy from the Essie Navigate Her Spring 2012 Collection is a very pale lilac. Although, the color may not be very unique from other brands or even other former Essie colors. This one is loaded with a pale lavender micro-glitter that is very obvious in the bottle, but does not translate well onto the nail. It would've been a beautiful color if the glitter was apparent on the polish. Once, on the nail, the polish tends to dry to more of a creme like finish. The interesting thing that I did notice...when I went to remove the nail polish, I saw that the glitter pieces seemed to have "sunk to the bottom". There was a decent amount of the sparkly stuff that needed to be "scrubbed" off the nail.
I used three coats here for opacity.
