I picked up two Essie polishes, an OPI polish, a POP eyeliner and a really great hand and cuticle scrub, that I will review later this week. It was a great deal!
Play Date caught my eye because it reminds me of a purple polish I had in high school and loved!
|Essie - Play Date|
Play Date is from the new Go Overboard collection. I have one other color from the collection as well, (Go Overboard, which is a tealish blue), but this is my favorite by far.
I think the formula on this is really good. In fact, I probably could have gotten away with one coat. For demonstration purposes, I used two coats. I started with OPI Chip Skip, Sally Hansen Strengthening Basecoat, two coats of Play Date and a topcoat of Seche Vite.

This is a true lilac color. It looks good on nubbins, which I finally went down to earlier this week because of a couple breaks. It also looks good on light to medium skin like mine. I think it would look even better on darker skin as well.

This is my fourth Essie polish, not counting the four minis I have too. I have found that the formula varies from polish to polish. I have used Go Overboard from this collection and it seems very thick and hard to work with. The Play Date formula was much easier and was not streaky or thick.
