I’m wearing another pastel today, albeit from a different collection.  Essie Lilacism (Art of Spring, Spring 2010) is a pale, pastel lavender creme:

Picture taken in sunlight.  The formula was a bit streaky and on the thin side so I needed three coats to get it opaque and even.  But the application wasn’t too bad overall.  The shade is definitely more cool-toned.  It reminds me of lavender soaps and candles.  I paired this with Sephora by OPI IM Beauty on my toes.

After wearing more cool-toned pinkish shades for the past few days, I opted for something warmer this time.  Essie Tart Deco (Art of Spring, Spring 2010) is a melon-orange creme:

Picture taken in sunlight.  The formula was a bit streaky; it was almost okay in two coats but I needed three to cover up bald spots.  But the formula had decent flow so doing three coats wasn’t too much of a bother.  My issue with the polish is that topcoat completely changes the color!  I experienced this with Van D’Go as well.  There’s a very obvious difference between pre-topcoat (and bottle color) and post-topcoat.  It was disappointing because when I was applying it, the color had a nice pinkish tone, but the dry mani looks straight-up orange (in my picture it looks peach, but in real life it looks more orange).  I paired this with Sephora by OPI Lost Without My GPS on my toes.

New month, new theme!  For April I’m wearing lots of pastels, soft shades and the like.  Essie Van D’Go (Art of Spring, Spring 2010) is a soft, pinkish peach creme:

Picture taken in sunlight.  Being pastel, I was expecting the formula to be thick and streaky, and it was.  I needed three coats for full opacity; self-leveling topcoat made it even.  Despite the application issues, I’m very happy with the end result.  I love stark shades.  However, when it dries down, the color takes on a more orangey tint!  It’s still pretty, but noticeably different from the bottle color and from what it looks like when you first put it on.  I paired this with Color Club Blue Light on my toes.
