Essie ALWAYS has the best colors, but sometimes not the best formula. This one is different, it is super opaque- 2 coats and you’re good to go. This is a very light purple, so light that it is a neutral, in my opinion. It almost had a hint of gray to it, and it’s so flattering on many different skintones.
I recently went to a work dinner with my husband and his co-workers, and I picked this shade to wear with my dress. I figured it was still a color, but not a bright pink or anything. I wanted something that looked sophisticated, elegant, and that would go with anything, and this was the one.
