NOTD – Essie Baby Cakes

A cool toned, slightly dirty lavender bursting with iridescence but no sparkles.

Opaque on 2 coats, but needs 3 for a really good finish.  I like it, but I don’t love it.

The formula is good and fairly thin.  It’s easy to apply with no streaking or dragging.  Longevity is fine too with minimal tip wear and thanks to the paler shade you barely notice it anyway.

I think I’d like it to be a little grungier, a little dirtier – it’s a touch princessy for me!

    I agree, I’d prefer to be a bit darker and dirtier.

  2. Jo says:

    Yeah, same here. Its too light for my liking, and a bit boring.

    I think it’s an absolutely gorgeous colour!

  4. Sarah says:

    I agree it’s a bit too “pure”. Some gold reflects would do wonders for it.

    I agree with everyone. It’s just too light for me. A very pretty color but I don’t think it will suit me.

    Lovely, soft and very feminine color! love it 🙂

    Oh I like that actually!! Although I’d say it looks a bit yummier in the bottle if that makes sense!

    I tend to veer towards darker shades but there is a certain beauty in this shade – very very sweet and dainty….like you said, princessy. 🙂
