Essie's Lady Like (622) is one of the exclusive Fall 2007 polishes available only in Ulta stores, along with Ritzy Business (621?) and Classy Lassy (620.) LL appears to be a medium 75% raspberry, 25% plum creme. However, when you take a closer look at it, especially in sunlight, you can see that it does have shimmer. The microshimmer is a few shades lighter and a little more fuchsia than the base color of the polish. It's pretty when it shows up, but on my toes it doesn't seem to show up very often. I must note that I am pretty near-sighted, though! Even though it's technically a shimmer polish, it is a very pretty color and I don't mind it looking like a creme because of the nice color. I think it is a touch more cool-toned, rather than warm-toned, and it looks pretty good on me (NW 15.)
I didn't really enjoy the way Lady Like applied, but that could have been because I was using it in a pedicure (which are a pain for me anyway.) LL didn't seem to go on evenly, and I think I even used three coats on my big toes. I definitely have to take points off for less than ideal application and coverage. I'm going to give it another try on my tips before I give up on it, because I really like the color. I'll give it a 3.25 lippies for now and a "no" on repurchasing.
