Â by JodiJo Should be called Lilac - ish
Ordered this online to pick up in store. The bottle they gave me was clearly marked Lilacism, but it was a silvery blue shade. I went and found another bottle that was lilac color and traded it.
Painted my nails. Lovely lilac color (albeit a streaky formula). Two days later my nails were a silvery blue color.
Lighting makes no difference, indoors or out they are the same color.
What a waste of money, obviously a problem in the formula. Who buys lilac polish to have it change blue??

Remember that picture where you tried to figure out if the dress was white/gold or blue/black? That's what I feel like right now because I am looking at other people's pictures of their nails being the beautiful purple color that Lilacism gave me just two months ago and comparing them to my nails that are so blue I was uncertain whether or not I was wearing Lilacism or Udon Know Me. I double checked and it's definitely Lilacism that changed.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by MayKathleen My Go-To Shade
I've been wearing Essie for 7 years now and I have never found a more lovely light purple than Lilacism. I'm on my 5th bottle of it and will wear it forever! It reminds me of my grandmother who loved Lilacs and the soft & whisper of that gorgeous purple is what keeps me coming back for this shade. I've been wearing Lilacism for special occasions since the color came out; my graduation, weddings, my first date with my fiancÃ©, and every casual weekday that turned out to be magical. I will forever suggest this shade and I wear it with pride.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by riles129 Possibly the Best Polish... EVER!!
A cult classic, Essie's Lilacism might be my favorite polish ever-- if not, definitely in my top 5 out of my 100 purples, 200 Essies, and 500 nail polishes (yes, I know I have way, way, way too many nail polishes ;)). The formula is perfection, super creamy and just 2 coats (which is saying something for a light purple like this one), and the color is the prettiest color ever, in my opinion (a light purple with gray undertones). I polish my nails regularly, and am an expert at nail art, which this polish is great for. Essie is my favorite brand, and this is just a brilliant nail polish. If you could only have one nail polish, this should be it!! Definitely buy! :)
