Lilac care package

Just a few days ago, I was looking at someone's nail-art blog, and they had some polishes by Essie. And then... as if she had known I was wishing for a bottle... my sister sent one to me by mail from Canada!

"Lilacism" by Essie (shade 304)

Essie polish is definitely not a one-coat wonder, but the formula's not bad.  I much prefer it with a topcoat, because the finish is very matte.  I don't have many pastels in my collection at the moment, and Lilacism is a lovely shade, though with the blue undertones I wouldn't say it's a true lilac.
