Essie – To Buy Or Not To Buy is a soft pastel purple with a blue and purple shimmer in it from Essie’s spring 2012 collection Navigate Her.
The color is so cute and I was really excited to see a pastel with a shimmer like this. I applied the first coat and thought uh oh… this is so sheer and streaky, two coats… still got bald spots happening, three coats, now we hit full opacity but unfortuately the layering of the coats is still visible. I feel like this formula is a bit thick and does not go on very smoothly. On the plus side it does dry very quickly
The color is really lovely and that ever so slight shimmer gives the pastel purple a fresh feel.
