Lapis of Luxury

When I went down to the states last week, I had the opportunity to finally visit a Ulta store. My friend drove me there (thanks! :D) and with the promise that I would refrain myself and rethink all my purchases before shopping, I ran in. The first thing on my list was the new Orly Cosmic FX Collection. There were a couple colors that I was lemming for but to my huge disappointment they were already sold out of the whole collection. It also did not help matters when the salesperson rubbed it in and told me she had bought a couple. However, there were still some great sales on, including a buy 2 get 1 free of Essie nail polish so obviously it was an offer I could not refuse. Lapis of Luxury is a beautiful baby blue cream and I have already gotten compliments from wearing it. It reminds me of the spa for some reason. Lapis of Luxury is from Essie's resort collection that came out this spring. My blue nail polish collection is quite small, so I have no dupes - but this was definitely worth buying to add to my blue collection. The application for this was pretty smooth but it required 4 thin coats for this polish to be opaque. I also had to redo two of my nails as it needed more time in between coats to try and even when I thought it was try, I scratched it again 0_o. However, I love the jelly consistency and would be willing to spend more time letting it dry because it's so worth it.

Thanks for reading!
