Essie-Lady Like swatch/review

Essie Lady like is from one of their newest collection ( not latest) called Essie's Carry On collection. Out of all the colors this one is the only one that drawn to me. At first I thought maybe I already have something similar to this but then being a polish addict as I am I got it anyway even though my friends told me NO MORE nail polish hahaha. They just dont know how important nail polishes are to me hahaha...
I would describe this color as a muted dusty rose/a hint of purple/grey base undertone. This is a creme color with no shimmer or anything to it. When I first bought it home, I thought to myself... hmm this is not a special color.. no wow or pow factor but when you put it on your hands it makes your hands seems so delicate looking. So " pure" if you catch my drift =).

This color only needed two coats, it applied very smoothly which was surprising to me because usually I have troubles with my Essie nail polishes. I was able to paint very close to my cuticles without it pooling which was fantastic. I really enjoy using essie nail polishes and I have worn this for 5-7 days without chipping which was nice. After the 7th day I can see the nail polish cracking but no chipping. I would also like to add I dont do any dishes so it would probably last 3-5 days if you do ton of house work. I do however type a lot and the polish holds up very well.
I think everyone should own this nail polish because it is very wearable for all skin tones. Pale,med, yellow, olives.. etc. This polish will be very appropriate for the job market because its very muted and not too bam in your face color. I will be repurchasing this color when I run out.
Do you guys own this color?
What color colors did you get from Essie's Carry On collection?

Nail Polishes I packed to school/ new polishes

I just wanted to do this to show you guys what I brought with me to school for my last semester. As you guys read in my previously nail polish post, I was not allowed to bring to many nail polish to school ahahha.
when you see my mini collection you will understand why I haven't posted any nail art lately because looking at what I got I lost all motivation LOL! plus im taking 6 classes right now so im really busy.
I also got a few new nail polishes I will share in this post with you guys as well!

Ibiza- Dark Navy Blue with shimmer, super pretty in the sunlight.. It looks almost black but not quite. I believe I did a post on this already.

caitlin- Purple/grey color. Love this color great for fall

Absolutely shore- pretty baby green color! This was my go to color in the summer love it
Buy me a cameo- I won this in a giveaway and I really like this color.. its a rosy gold color .

Coat azure- I never leave anywhere without this color this is one of m favorite medium tone blue color, it has a little shimmer in it but not too much where it looks childish
Nice is Nice- very pretty/wearable lilac color. It has a more of a pink undertone than blue so I love it.
Sephora Metro chic- I use to wear this color all the time last fall.. wore it once already I really like it but not enough to wear again.. I hope when it gets colder I will want to wear this color again. This is a mauvy dirty grey/purple color

opi extravagance- I needed a pretty sparkly color so I decided to bring this one. Pretty maroon color. the only bad thing about this is that it chips so fast no mater what base coat or top coat I use.
China glaze- TMI ( What does this stand for by the way?)- Coraly color. Great summer color

Sally hansen Barracuda- My favorite baby blue nail polish of all times- This also goes everywhere with me. I shook up the bottle so it looks pretty when i take the picture but I used 1/4 of the bottle already =]

lastly... Club color poptastic- great hot neon pink colors. I would wear this on my nails in the summer and on the toes when ever I feel like my feet needs a pick me up LOL
now on to the new colors I got recently:
Essie- Lady Like- pretty mauve pink/ purple color. everyone needs this in their collection PERIOD. when I was at target my friend tried to talk me out of buying this because I have so many nail polishes and she said I probably have something that looks like it and I told her I didnt but then I put it back anyway. Then i contemplated for 2 weeks and I knew I wanted it badly enough so I got it. I wore this color 3 times since i got it and thats saying a lot because I usually don't like wearing the colors consecutively . First I wore it for 1 week, reapplied it for the second week and took a week off to wear a different color now im back wearing it today. I will do a NOTD post soon.
Next I got:
orly- nite owl- pretty nude with grey undertones. This have pretty silver sparkles that are not too noticeable
Revlon- copper penny, a copper color =p
Revlon- gold coin- gold foil like polish, super pretty. Very fitting color for the holidays
The sally hansen- that was given to me. I forgot the name of it and the sticker was taken off
Lastly Confetti Tasmanian Devil... you can never have too many Deborah Lippmann " happy birthday" nail polish dupes hahahahah

If you guys want any review on these nail polishes I just listed let me know.
