GAP Lilac

Today I have another one of those great polishes I got when GAP had a 30% off sale last month — Lilac. Like the others I've tried so far, this one also has a wonderful formula with easy application and two coats to perfection.
A gorgeous lilac creme shade!
I'm impressed with the polishes GAP has been putting out there at such an affordable price, especially during one of their many sales. They have a great selection of colors and, while I can't verify the rumor that they are manufactured at the same place as the Chanel polishes, I do find that many of their colors are very similar to those of Chanel (Gold Rush/Peridot, for one) and I like to try to guess which ones are dupes. Could Lilac be a dupe for Chanel's Lilac Sky? Well, since the Chanel polish appears to have a shimmer and Lilac is a creme, probably not, but the color appears close!
No shimmers there...
I also got a darker purple shade, Violet, that I will review later on and I think these two will make a nice gradient. I will have to experiment...

    1. That's such a shame! Have you asked? Some of the stores near me keep them by the register, but others have them tucked on the shelves near the t-shirts.

    1. Thanks! It's one of those universally becoming shades, IMHO. You should get it!
