Dreamy Lacquer Lilac or Lavender?

I was provided with this polish.

 Last week you saw a sneak peek of today's polish when I reviewed the KKCenterHk stamper. Yes, I'm talking about this mess.

Give me a minute, and I'll show you the pretty purple polish beneath this chaos.

I wasn't expecting to get this polish to review, but I was excited when I got it. Lavender is one of my favorite scents and colors. This color reminds me of many years ago, I asked my mom for some lavender colored towels for Christmas. What I received was something a little closer to fuchsia or I suppose lilac, depending on what you consider lilac. Those light purple colors seem confuse people in regards to which color is which so obviously I can appreciate the name of this polish. I thought it was funny. I know, silly story!

 Here is 3 coats of Lilac or Lavender?

I love the color, of course! The formula itself I wasn't sure about at all when I first swatched it. It just wasn't quite the nice creme I expected. It was almost too thin for what I expect from a creme. So I swatched it a second time.

The second time I decided I was just in one of my mood's that first day; it turned out fine the second time now that I knew what to expect. I think what threw me off is I would have to describe this more as a crelly than a creme; almost a jelly creme.

So I'm still a bit unsure about this polish. I'm not sure if I like the color on me, it's just a bit too pastel. I'm sure I would love it on someone else. Maybe it will grow on me more when I use it in the future. That's just a personal preference though. I really had no issues with this polish once I knew what to expect. I will mention that like most Dreamy Lacquer polishes, this one also seems to be fairly sheer with just 2 coats. I'd recommend 3 coats.

Here it is with 2 coats, topped with Cover Girl Amethyst Mist once again. I think you can see how it's not quite perfect opacity at 2 coats.

It does seem that most of Dreamy Lacquer's polishes take 3 coats to reach a nice opacity but these do seem to dry in decent time so no problem there.

Thanks again to Dreamy Lacquer Company for providing me with this polish to sample.
