Essie For The Twill Of It Swatches




I picked up this beauty from Ulta last week. For The Twill Of It is part of their fall 2013 collection. I was also interested in Vested Interest, which looked like a dusty medium green. When I saw it, it reminded me of School of Hard Rocks, a polish I already have so I kinda left it alone.

This polish is a duochrome, or shall I say multi-chrome, with color shifting from grey to teal and purple. The color shift if fairly strong so if you love duochrome, you'll be pleased with this one. The formula leaned slightly on the thick side but still being manageable. A little uneven on the first coat but the second coat is enough to offer full and even color payoff.

I'm not sure if this collection hit the drugstore yet but it is available at Ulta for $8.00.









On the last picture, I added a sheer blue and pink shimmer polish on top and made they made the nails look so much prettier too with the subtle shimmers.

Will you be getting anything from this collection?

  4. I was debating between this and OPI's Peace & Love & OPI and I'm so glad I got OPI's version.. it seems Essie's really shows brushstrokes!! Very curious though how both are almost exact dupes :)
