Editor's Review

Full Steam Ahead Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a soft, light-medium lavender with subtle cool undertones and a subtle white pearl. The consistency on this shade was slightly thick, and it didn't level out for me, so it looked a little streaky and uneven after two coats. I tried applying this a few different ways from using thinner coats to using one thin, one thicker, and then two more medium coats, but the results were all rather similar. I normally get a week of wear out of Essie's formula with minor tip wear. Zoya Julie is lighter. Essie She's Picture Perfect is darker, cooler-toned. Essie Nice is Nice is slightly pinker. Essie Bangle Jangle is more muted. See comparison swatches.
