NOTD: Essie's Lilacism

For the past week I've been wearing the oh-so fabulous Lilacism by Essie! I recently bought this polish at Target on Black Friday thinking that it would be on sale, but everything seemed to be at regular price. Being me, I purchased it anyway because I convinced myself that all of my other light purple polishes looked nothing like this one.

Lilacism is from Essie's 2010 Art of Spring Collection but is now on Essie's Core Collection, meaning that you can find it at any time wherever Essie is sold. This polish is a dusty lilac color with blue undertones and is opaque in 2-3 coats. The first coat is streaky but once you add another, it's perfect. I used Seche Vite as my topcoat and this polish started chipping at day 6 which I personally think is great because I always like to switch my nail color up anyway. 

In outdoor lighting, you can really see the blue undertones. And indoors it can change lilac to looking like a light grey. This cream polish is definitely unique and perfect for Winter & Spring! What are your thoughts on this polish? Tell me in the comments below or on Instagram! Farewell!


  1. On your photos Essie Lilacism looks very blue... Mine is more lilac.

    1. I agree! In this picture I was outdoors + in the shade and the blue undertones really stood out! Indoors it definitely looks more lilac! I kind of like having it look different in various lighting, it keeps me from getting bored with just one color :)
