Pretty Periwinkle - Essie Boxer Shorts


I have a friend who LOVES periwinkle polishes. We haven't spoken in a while, but when I picked this up I immediately thought of her! I really hope she is doing well. I'm nervous to contact her again, but I really should...and maybe I should bring her a bottle of Essie Boxer Shorts. Then again, she probably already has it!


A lovely periwinkle cream polish - colourful but not too bright. I LOVE this on my toes! Here it is compared to Lapis of Luxury - Boxer Shorts on the left, Lapis on the right.


Boxer Shorts is a bit deeper and seems to have more blue in it. Both lovely polishes! You may not need both, but they will both have a home with me for the time being...that is until I go on a purge bender again!

Are you partial to periwinkle?

Are theses super mega opaque? Or a little jelly maybe?

I LOVE periwinkle! So I definitely need this, even though I have Lapis of Luxury.

Get out my head! Haha, I *just* picked this up about 20 minutes ago from CVS (along with Pilates Hottie and Stroke of Brilliance - not what I went in for, but who am I to pass up an Essie display?) I was curious to see Yogaga and Gym Dandy in person, but they were gone.

I can't believe how blue it is next to Lapis - in the store it looked so purple, I was betting it would be similar to Play Date. I only have the mini of Lapis, so I'm glad to have this one.

I have both of these - I am a sucker for these shades IF they don't have too much white in them turning them chalky (like a # of Essies in the periwinkle range have fallen into).

UGH where was this post yesterday?? I couldn't find a comparison to Lapis anywhere! I just caved and bought boxer shorts though literally 10 mins ago and can't wait to wear it

Love this color!

You know what's funny....I just got this color and then you posted a swatch of it!

And I totally need Lapis of Luxury. And it also appears I need Play Date just by looking at the thumbnail! Ah, purples. I love 'em! (It is my FAVORITE color. Now, if only someone did a smooth dark purple glitter or holographic that was 3 Free and easily available here in the states and I'd be in Heaven.)
