Lady Like

Polish number four from the Essie fall collection:

Essie Lady Like

This one surprised me.  Based on swatches I'd seen online and how it looked in the bottle, I thought it would much more pink, but it looks more mauve on me.  I really like it.  This was two coats.

Later, I added on one of my recent acquisitions, CND Sheer 24K Sparkle:

This is the effect that is part of CND's The Look Fall/Winter 2011.  I really love it - it is quite different from the Gold Sparkle.  The flecks are all golden and are different shapes and sizes:

closest!

So pretty, even against a light color!  Can't wait to see it against something dark.

  1. You were of course right in guessing that I'd love this dusty mauve color :-) The gold effect is gorgeous! I wish they would sell it separately too.

  2. I decided to go for the set because the other two colors are colors I would wear, and it was only a couple dollars more for the set of three than the retail price for one effect!

  3. That effect looks great with Lady Like!
