This color is amazing… absolutely beautiful and perfect for Spring! It has been a long, cold Winter in NYC and looking down at my nails has me so excited for the upcoming season. Essie Lilacism from the Art of Spring 2010 Collection is a blue-toned, pastel Lilac creme. The pics are pretty true to color . This shade is very thin and goes on streaky. Very sheer with the first coat and still spotty on the second coat. I had to do a heavy third coat to avoid four coats. You have to put in some work to get an even opaque application… but since the shade is so beautiful, I wont complain. Tart Deco coming soon!
