Essie Under Where?

Hi you guys! :-)

Continuing with the Essie Resort 2013 Collection, I've got another pretty shade to share with you today. Under Where? is the quintessential lilac creme, leaning just slightly more pink than blue.






I'm a little slow, but this is the one whose name finally made me realize that all the polishes in this collection have slightly naughty names lol. :D Pink-leaning lilacs tend to be more forgiving against my skintone than blue-leaning lilacs, so I'm a big fan of this shade. Formula-wise, this is a trickier one in the collection. It's thinner and streakier than the rest. The first coat is definitely very patchy, though the second coat does a lot to help with that, and that's what you see in the swatches. You can probably do a third coat if you want it extra smooth, but I'm ok with just two coats.

You can find Under Where? on Essie.com, at your local nail salons and drug stores, and at big name retailers like Target and Macy's for $8 for 0.46 fl oz.

  9. This is gorgeous. I wonder how close it is to BL Mollycoddled? This collection is so pretty. I walk past it in the store attatched to my pharmacy every day but I haven't pulled the trigger on anything just yet.

    2. Hi Liesl! So I checked, and the two are almost exactly the same. If I squint really hard, I think Under Where is just slight pinker and a shade lighter than Molly-Coddled, but you definitely don't need both. Hope that helps! :-)

  13. I really like this colour! It looks really similar to Model's Own in 'Grape Juice' which I already own but unfortunately it doesn't flatter my skin tone well :( oh well.

    1. I'm glad you like the color, at least. I find pastel purples to be a little hard to wear too. But they are very pretty. :-)
