Hey girlie girls. Today I have a swatch of a polish that was a MAJOR lemming for me Before I became a polish hoarder, I still wanted my nails to look nice, and not being able to paint my nails properly lead me to some internet searches. I came across this video on youtube by juicystar07 (I LOVE Blair! OMGHHKP!) just to learn the basics and stuff. I may not agree with the whole water thing, because I think wet manicures are so old school and they really don't help much, but I LOVED the color that she used, which was OPI Do You Lilac It?. I wanted it for...forever? I lie, it was more like a year or so, and I finally got it, wore it once, and it started collecting dust. You know how it goes. Well, here it is again! Pictures first, review later.
This is two coats, nice and smooth, with topcoat. The formula on this is awesome. It was a bit streaky on the first coat but nothing too bad, and it evens out perfectly on the second coat. The drying time is average, and the opacity is great. I barely had any cleanup to do. Beeteedubs, I'm using a new cleanup brush that I heard was good, the Elf Cosmetics concealer brush which can be found at Target for a whopping...$1. It's okay, but thicker and fuller than I'm used to. Anyways, back to the polish. When I was applying it, I kept thinking it looks a lot like butter LONDON Scoundrel, which you've seen before on this blog here. I was wrong though, Scoundrel is dustier and darker. Here's a bottle shot:
I also thought it was close to OPI Planks A Lot, but wrong again, PAL is darker and dustier... hmm, I should have compared Scoundrel and PAL...
I love how this polish looks, I think it makes my fingers look great. Am I weird for that? Meh, I'm weird in general so whatevs.
What do you think? Do YOU Lilac It? (See what I did there? I'm so punny.) Let me know, thanks for reading! And remember to enter my giveaway! :D
