Essie Using My Maiden Name Swatch

I don't know why I keep buying nail polishes and I certainly didn't need another lavender nail polish but Using My Maiden Name is just so pretty! It has a subtle violet shimmer glow that looks more prominent when you look at the bottle. It's probably what attracted me most about it.

Once swatched, the formula is more of a jelly creme with a medium thin consistency. It's a little bit patchy on the first coat but with the 2nd and third layer, it evens out nicely. The violet shimmer is so faint on the nail swatches that you can barely detect it. I wished it was a bit more noticeable like it is in the bottle. Other than that, I think this nail color is lovely. I did 3 coats on the swatches for full opacity.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Is a dupe for Sinful Colors Candy Coated :)

    Happy New Year girl :)



  2. Happy new year to you too! Sinful Colors are usually off my radar but good to know they have a dupe.
