This is To Buy or Not to Buy from Essie’s spring 2012 collection. It’s a bright lavender with teeny tiny blue and pink flakes, which show up much better in the bottle. In the picture below, you can kind of see them on my index finger. I usually choose cremes over anything sparkly anyway, so this didn’t bother me too much. But if you were expecting the amount of shimmer in the bottle, you’ll probably be disappointed. The base color is beautiful, almost exactly the same as Essie’s Nice is Nice from last year’s spring collection, but a little brighter and pinker. In some lights, this one actually looks like a very cool-toned pink.
This is three coats with Essie Good to Go. It’s a little lumpy, but evens itself out. Just don’t try to add another coat until the previous one is dry.
Also, sorry about my super dry cuticles, they’re insisting on being dry no matter what I put on them right now.
