I thought I’d follow up my previous NOTD with another color from the same collection.  Essie Lapis of Luxury (Resort Collection, 2010) is a cornflower blue creme:

Picture taken in natural light.  Much like Turquoise & Caicos, the formula wasn’t very pigmented and I used three coats to reach full opacity.  Again, I suggest waiting a couple of minutes in between coats/topcoat to avoid cuticle drag.  It’s not the shade of blue I think of when I picture lapis lazuli, but it’s still a pretty color nonetheless!  It looks…calming.  I paired this with Sephora by OPI Techno Girl on my toes.
