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??

I bought this beautiful purple colour with such great intentions. After applying the nail polish, I began to notice that at some times the polish would be a blueish tint, while other times it would be more purple. I thought it was just my eyes at first until I began taking photographs of it. A few weeks later I bought another bottle of lilacism because I do really like the colour, and hoped it would not turn blue, yet it still did. The purple is a beautiful colour, but I bought this item for purple nails not blue ones.

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! :)

Was iffy on buying this colour as I thought it would wash out my super fair skin. So glad I did though! In dim indoor light it looks more blue/grey in colour, but in bright light it is a totally true beautiful lilac. Wore it with Set in Stones as an accent nail and received a lot of compliments. Only complaint would be the formula, it took three coats to make it not a streaky patchy mess, BUT it makes up for it with its amazing wear. Polish usually chips on me after one day but 4 days later and this is still chip-free.
