OPI Shangri-la-la Lilac




This beautiful pastel purple is OPI's Shangri-la-la Lilac. Its an old shade from a few years ago but still a good one. I bought it on transdesign.com for a little over $5 which is pretty cheap for OPI.
Comparing this to Essie's Lilacism - another pretty lilac shade - this is more pink toned, where Lilacism has blue undertones. To be honest, i like Shangri-la-la Lilac alot better!
SWATCHES
1 coat AVON Lemon Fortifier as base
2 coats OPI Shangri-la-la Lilac
1 coat INM Out The Door topcoat
[PROS]
opaque in two coats
applies smooth
cream formula
would suit alot of different skin tones
not streaky or patchy at all
great Spring shade
dries quick
[CONS]
Because this is an older OPI shade it's only sold online, not in stores, which may make it hard to get for some.
This particular bottle has the old OPI brush tyle (not the new pro-wide one) so thats a downside, but still applies great.
Loooove this shade!! For me its like the perfect hybrid of pastel pink and pastel lilac. The formula was great, no disappointments there, and it dried pretty quickly so overall im pleased!
