Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmmm... When I first bought this colour, it was the perfect lilac shade for my skin tone and I loved it. After a while though, I noticed that the colour in the bottle turned light blue with no purple in it at all. I applied it and the colour was a light blue on my nails too. At first, I thought that it was only because I stored the nail polish in a spot that made the colour turn blue. But all my other Essie nail polishes that were stored there did not change in colour. So I bought another bottle, and the same thing happened. I bought a third bottle, and my results were the same. Overall, I was disappointed that it turned to light blue, because the original lilac shade looked really good on me and I loved it a lot. Maybe its just me?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Go-To Shade I've been wearing Essie for 7 years now and I have never found a more lovely light purple than Lilacism. I'm on my 5th bottle of it and will wear it forever! It reminds me of my grandmother who loved Lilacs and the soft & whisper of that gorgeous purple is what keeps me coming back for this shade. I've been wearing Lilacism for special occasions since the color came out; my graduation, weddings, my first date with my fiancé, and every casual weekday that turned out to be magical. I will forever suggest this shade and I wear it with pride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possibly the Best Polish... EVER!! A cult classic, Essie's Lilacism might be my favorite polish ever-- if not, definitely in my top 5 out of my 100 purples, 200 Essies, and 500 nail polishes (yes, I know I have way, way, way too many nail polishes ;)). The formula is perfection, super creamy and just 2 coats (which is saying something for a light purple like this one), and the color is the prettiest color ever, in my opinion (a light purple with gray undertones). I polish my nails regularly, and am an expert at nail art, which this polish is great for. Essie is my favorite brand, and this is just a brilliant nail polish. If you could only have one nail polish, this should be it!! Definitely buy! :)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's blue Just bought this. First coat is extremely streaky and watery looking, but you're good to go with a second coat. In my opinion, if I am paying the extra money for a slightly higher priced drug store polish I like to have an even coat with my first application (especially since my nails last no longer than a week and it's going to come off fairly soon). However, the color just isn't lilac at all. For me it is not a matter of lighting but it's simply a soft baby blue (which if that's what you want then it's a lovely color).Overall, this is being returned (thank you CVS).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Opaque in Two Coats Great formula, especially for a pastel. It is a beautiful pale lilac color, a little less drab than in the photo here. My bottle has more blue in it than the photo (which in my opinion, is a good thing!) It applies well, not streaky, is opaque in 2 coats, doesn't stain, and is really long wearing. It's a great color for any season, and I find myself reaching for it most during Springtime. Love this color!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feminine, crisp color I bought Lilacism because of all the great reviews I read about it and, I have to say, my expectations have not been let down! This is a perfect springtime color and the only purple I've bought that I really like. I can't wait to see what my friends think of it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so beautiful! This is my favorite nail polish of any brand- hands down. It is so pretty and subtle against my pale skin, I have gotten so many compliments while wearing this! Its a periwinkle-y lilac that is perfect, sometimes purple colors can bring out the red undertone of my skin and this doesn't do that. I would 100% rebuy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle Yet Gorgeous Color This has been one of my favorite polishes for years. Lilacism is a beautiful light purple that looks slightly muted or more of a purple-ish gray in softer lights. It is elegant, simple, and beautiful. It compliments all skin tones and is good in 2-3 coats. Definitely a must have!
