I'm trying to summon warmer temperatures this week with my manicure choice -- Essie Lilacism, part of the Spring 2010 Collection. This creamy lilac polish makes me think of 75-degree weather, sitting at an outdoor cafe with a margarita and some friendly conversation. Hopefully this color will make it happen!

The first was pretty streaky and left too much of the natural nail showing, so I really needed a second coat to make sure the streaks disappeared. I topped it with Deborah Lippmann Addicted To Speed Top Coat -- it's my first time using this particular top coat, so I'll be interested to see how the polish wears over the week without my normal Seche Vite.

  3. LOVE this color, but am really having a hard time finding it... I did purchase Nice is Nice from the recent french affair collection, bc i thought it looked close. Do you think they are similar? I'm thinking you prob have seen if not own both colors...thoughts?
