Lapis Of Luxury is a beautiful blue that reminds me of summer skies, Essie describes it as a dreamy ocean blue, which I can totally see. The formula is great, very smooth however it needs three coats to be completely opaque. I however was very impatient and only applied two coats, so the finish wasn’t as flawless as I had hoped it to be. Anyways it’s another beautiful color of Essie’s Resort 2010 collection and definitely worth buying if you don’t already have any similar dupes.
I’m wearing Greenport from Essie’s North Fork Summer 2009 collection. I loved the entire collection but Greenport just screamed BUY ME! The formula was okay although for the color to be absolutely opaque I needed three coats, however the gorgeous color definitely makes up for it 🙂
This is the perfect navy with just the right amount of shimmer. The coverage is amazing, I only needed two coats and the wide brush allows for a smooth application. So for everyone that loves their blues, you won’t do wrong with this one!
