Today I will review ELF nail polish in lilac. It costs 1$ in US, 1,5£ in UK and 1,7 € in EU. So it is pretty cheap. As far as ELF nail polishes go, there are hits and misses, and this particular polish is a miss in my opinion.
Concictency is very watery so this is VERY sheer. In the swatch picture I have 3 coats on and there is still visible nail line. First coat was almost nothing on my nails, second coat added a little bit of color. Do get full opacity you will need 4 coats. The color seems to be more lilac in the bottle than it is on nails, it is almost nude, toned down lilac. I think that in so many swatch pictures it seems to be more blue toned than it really is. The polish has creme finish.
ELf nail polish brushes are just regular nail polish brushes, nothing special about them.
Staying power is bad too- on third day index finger and thumb on my right hand had massive chipping - I used my regular top coat by Poshe.
It made my nails little bit yellow too and I used my regular base coat.
Sorry I did not take this photo just after applying it to my nails, this is taken 2,5 days after painting them. Picture is taken in daylight cloudy weather conditions without flash.
So in conclusion, I would not buy it again. If you like sheer, almost nude nail polishes, you may want to try it out. But in my opinion, very cheap price does not justify bad quality.
Thank you for reading!
