Essie For The Twill Of It Swatches & Review

Hey Lovelies!,

I hope that you're all doing well. I'm alright for the most part. This gloomy weather and the rain is just making me want to curl up with a blanket and do nothing but sleep all day. But unfortunately I have to be an adult and do adult things lol. Today I'll be sharing a swatch of this Essie polish that I've had for a while now. Keep reading for more!

For The Twill Of It

For The Twill Of It is a grey-purple duo-chrome from the Essie Fall 2013 Collection. I did find that this polish is similar to O.P.I Peace & Love & OPI. I would need to do a comparison post. For The Thrill Of It is pretty with good coverage and good drying time between coats. This polish did build nicely and I could have stopped with two coats but opted for three. Shown is three thin coats with a glossy top coat!
