Essie - For the Twill of It

I've noticed recently that my blog views have been really increasing dramatically, and that I've picked up quite a few new followers. So if that's you - hello! *waves*

Today's post is a little dull I'm afraid. This is Essie - For the Twill of It. I bought this last week when I saw it looking fantastic in a shop. I should have looked at it online before I bought it, but oh well!

For the Twill of It is a grey-silver polish with a purple-blue-green duochrome. However, I'm just a bit unimpressed with this on the nail.

Application is ok, although the first coat is a bit patchy and streaky, and I noticed quite a few bubbles on the second coat (although Seche Vite sorted this out). The duochrome effect just isn't very visible in real life, and is even harder to capture on camera.

I realised that this polish was displayed in a store with lots of bright white lights shining at the bottles from the sides, which I think made it look more exciting than it is. I think it's nice, but it isn't amazing, and there are other far better duochromes out there, in my opinion.


  1. I fancied this but already have Peace & Love & OPI and think it's quite similar. Spent ages in the shop looking at it and decided against buying it!

    1. I don't think you're missing anything to be honest!

  2. I'd seen this in an Essie ad in a mag and thought it looked awesome, shame it's not so great IRL

    1. It's not bad - I mean, it's quite pretty. But it's just not that special in my opinion. Oh well.


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.

If you have a blog that you'd like me to check out, then I'm more than happy to do so - just drop me an email. Thanks!
