This is one of my favorite polishes that I own. It's too bad Essie no longer carries it. It's a cross between light blue and purple. Hard to decide which one it is. It applies easily, looks good with two coats, and lasts about a week or longer for me.

I love how Essie stays on up to 2 months but I change my nail colors often.. But Essie on me and my mom get ALOT of compliments!! Better than OPI and anything I have ever tried!

Absolute LOVE!!! I am so glad I anally research all my colors I buy since my nail budget is slim. But I'm glad I found the best periwinkle out there. Couldn't be happier. This color is gorgeous and in two coats you get a nice, even, full and shiny manicure! First coat seems a little thin, could be my base coat. But it doesn't matter since the end result is fantastic. Highly recommend!!!

LOOOOVE! But one lippie off since sadly Essie's always chips on me! I use a base and top coat and 2 coats of polish! Whatever the color is such a gorgeous & unique purple, I just can't get enough (:

This is a beautiful "plurple" color that is perfect for fall-spring! The formula is beautiful & the polish went on with two easy coats! If you are a blue polish lover this is a MUST have! This polish is defiantly staying in my collection!

I saw this online last week, loved it, and picked it up from walgreens while on vacation. I just used it tonight, and absolutely love it. The formula is great, not streaky the way the older essie polishes seem to be, and the color is a gorgeous bright periwinkle lavender color. I have nothing too similar, the closest color I have to it is fresh paint's hydrangea. I look forward to trying out bikini so teeny, which I believe is from the same collection.

I saw the new fall 2012 Essie display at Target today and as usual when there are new Essie colors, I stopped to check them out. I looked them all over and Boxer Shorts was the only one I felt like I really didn't already have in some other brand or even in Essie in a very similar or same color.

Boxer Shorts is sort of a periwinkle purpley-blue. The first coat is beautiful and it really does fine with just a coat, unlike many of the Essie colors that are more of a "hint" of color, but a second coat really makes this color amazing! I've gotten compliments on this already and it's a nice, cheerful color, which is sort of hard to find going into fall.

I have to say that overall, I tend to get more prolonged use and variety for my money from my Essie polishes than some of the designer or more expensive brands that I own. The fact that I can buy three of them for the price of one of some polishes I own, I don't know why I still buy any others!
