Essie 'Full Steam Ahead'
This was actually in the Essie's Summer Collection from last year (hence the small tube), but for some reason i hadn't used it very much yet. It is a really pretty light purple shade with sparkles running through it. I absolutely love the formula of Essie polishes, the brush is really wide, so it fits the entire nail and is fully opaque in just more than one coat. Essie have a couple of lilac nail polishes in their line, including 'Meet Me At The Altar', which is a really pretty pale shade, 'Full Steam Ahead' is one of the darker toned lilacs.
This shade is a lot less pink toned than the other two. Again this is a really pretty lilac shade, with a lot more blue tones than the rest. I must admit i much prefer this formula from Barry M than the original, as they become opaque in a lot less coats. And for £3.99 you can't really say no!
I gave this shade to my sister for her birthday last year, but i couldn't resist adding this gorgeous shade to my list. This is described as a 'lavender orchid cream', which is a perfect description for it. It looks absolutely stunning with a tan (or in my case, without too). I love the slightly pinker tones this one has compared to the rest, and i definitely think this is a great shade for summer, aswell as spring.
