Essie Nail Polish Lady Like (Neutral Manicure for Fall / Autumn)

Hey y'all. 

I have the most gorgeous, delicate, and subdued nail color to share with y'all today. Essie's Lady Like is a must have nail color for any lady. I think the name is very appropriate for this soft, light beige-taupe with pink undertones. In the bottle, this polish looks like it has a semi-frosty (not frost, not creme) finish because it has a reddish-silvery-purple sheen. However, on the nails it applies as "glossy" creme polish and the "colorful" sheen is not very prominent. 

The formula of this police is very versatile. One coat of this polish provides a purple tint to your nails, which looks very natural and reminds me of the color of my nails when I am feeling very cold. This polish appears opaque within two coats. The application is effortless; one coat or two coats, whatever look your heart desires, non-streaky, and non-patchy. 

This polish may not look that interesting or unique, but I disagree. Unlike some other taupes that can look very stark or dull, especially on medium to darker skin tones, this shade is quite the contrary because it is lighter and glossier on the scale of taupe shades. 

Essie polishes are $8 here in the U.S. If you live in the U.S., Rite Aid, Target, and ULTA sometimes have $2 off Essie polishes. Also, ULTA has "BOGO" sales on its OPI, China Glaze, and Essie around Thanksgiving or Christmas. 

Y'all must get this shade if y'all are looking for a neutral shade for Fall/Autumn. Essie's Ladylike is simple, yet clean and classy. It is youthful, shiny, and light enough for young ladies, while being simple, sophisticated, and elegant enough for mature ladies.
