essie ”lapiz of luxury” nail polish – swatches and review

Hi readers!

Welcome to my first essie september post! This intro will be short because I’m just drawing a blank when I try to think of how to start. So…

This is lapiz of luxury.

The essie brushes are round and on the small side – I’ve never been a fan of them. I find I have to do more strokes than usual, which can often result in leaving patches near the cuticles.

essie describes this colour as a dreamy ocean blue.

Unfortunately the formula is not dreamy – it’s quite thin and streaky/patchy. This is three coats and no top coat. Hello streak city. 🙁

It’s really too bad about the formula because it’s a pretty blue.

I don’t know if you noticed but I dinged my ring finger near the edge. I didn’t feel like redoing it because I was disappointed with the formula. Oh well!

Have you tried essie polishes before? What’s your experience with their formula?
