essie lapis of luxury: boots / superdrug (£7.99)

I posted a few weeks ago about the recently launched Essie Diffusion Line. At the time, I hadn't actually tried the polishes, but I've now finally got around to trying one of the four shades. Lapis of Luxury is a rich cornflower blue shade with a creme finish. The application is very smooth and glides onto the nail with ease. The wider brush makes painting your nails completely effortless because its so wide you can vary the pressure of your stroke to cover your whole nail. This makes application a complete dream as you only need one stroke rather than multiple ones to cover the nail. It takes about three coats to be opaque; However I found the formula to very quick drying so the fact it needed three coats was not too much of an issue. I cant wait to try out my other shades from Essie after trying this shade. I've currently got Essie Mint Candy Apple, and I'll review all the shades I've got in due course!

  3. I love this colour, you are spot on about the brush though its perfect. The only gripe I have is the formulation could be slightly thicker to avoid so many coats but as you say the drying time isn't too bad so I can get over this as I love the Essie polish :-)
