lilacism is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.
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 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 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 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 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from TURNS BLUE I bought this beautiful purple colour with such great intentions. After applying the nail polish, I began to notice that at some times the polish would be a blueish tint, while other times it would be more purple. I thought it was just my eyes at first until I began taking photographs of it. A few weeks later I bought another bottle of lilacism because I do really like the colour, and hoped it would not turn blue, yet it still did. The purple is a beautiful colour, but I bought this item for purple nails not blue ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty! This is a very pretty color but only looks lilac in some lights. Most of the time it looked either periwinkle blue or just plain light blue. The formula was really easy to work with, however.
