Love this alien chic sparkly mud nail polish so much. It reminds me of outer space and also an oil slick and a mood ring.

Beautiful duochrome polish with slight shimmer. The colors reflected include green, purple, brown and in some lights even black. I also see some red shimmer in certain lights. I think this is unique and a very good duochrome.

It is a bit runny so you will need to be careful with your application. The texture is nice and smooth. My first coat was quite streaky but the second coat offered full coverage for me.

At this point I am not sure about the wear but I will update after a couple of days. Typically I get good wear with Essie, but due to the holiday I will be doing more cooking including lots of chopping as well as some additional cleaning, so that will without a doubt change my wear experience.

Nothing unique about the packaging on this one. Typical Essie square bottle with a standard nail polish brush.

I got this at Marshall's for around $3.99 which is a good price for Essie. I would repurchase should I ever use the whole bottle. As I mentioned, I find this polish one of the better duochromes I have used, but I did reduce it by a lippie due to the runny formula.

UPDATE 11/27/2015 - I got great wear from this polish. After having my hands in and out of water for hours, chopping, peeling, cooking & cleaning I had one chip on my right thumb. I patched that up and the rest of the mani is still going strong. Definitely good & impressive wear with this one.

This is a great metallic polish, with lavender and silverish green hues. It's really unique but also not too in your face, if that makes sense. This looks amazing on stiletto and coffin shaped nails (not too over-barring, just right), and ditto for the toes (gives a cute pop, esp. with open toe shoes or sandals). Actually this is one of the few metallics that look good on both short and long nails IMO. I do feel it takes a bit to build it up but hey, that's not a huge biggie, given the price. I have had a few CC polishes over the years very similar to this one at a much higher price point and in which are now all discontinued, so this is an excellent alternative to those for me.

One of my favorite fall/winter polishes!

-color is a beautiful duo chrome purple/green/brown
-easy to apply, not streaky at all
-long wearing
-dries quickly

-can chip, it's not life proof, but most nail polishes aren't

This is a very pretty color. The application isn't too bad. It's a bit thin. I need three coats to make it completely opaque. Chipping isn't bad. It lasts about four days.

Overall, Essie is NOT my favorite brand of nail polish. I have had horrible luck with most Essie polishes; they have been either too difficult to apply, or they are streaky, they bubble, or they drag. There are really only 2 that I liked (Made to Honor and Shine of the Times), until this one. "For the Twill of It" is one, exceptional nail polish! It caught my eye a couple of times on display in several places, and I finally caved and bought it. I am so glad I did! I wore this for 8 days without even the slightest chip or tip wear! I couldn't believe it! And the color just made me fall in love! In one light in was a beautiful, sparkling, sage green. If I turned my hand, it was a frosty steel gray. In other lighting, it looked like a satiny, silvered-plum color. Now THIS is a polish that I got many compliments on! So beautiful! I wish I took a picture to share, because I also added a white, glittery topcoat with mixed glitter pieces (bar, hexagonal, and tiny circles) only to the cuticle area (opposite end of the nail tips), and my nails looked like they were sporting a snowy scene on a cold, wintry day. I know "For the Twill of It" is similar to OPI's "Peace, Love, and OPI" and another polish by Julep (forgot the name), but I would definitely recommend this one because it is one Essie polish that proved to be worth every dollar I paid for it.

I love this polish. The colour is unique, the lasting power is pretty good (under the Essie Good to go topcoat) lasted about a week. It is spring here, and it is part of the fall collection, but I just had to try it on and it looked great. I often catch myself looking at it under different lighting and see what colour it looks under what sort of light. It reminds me of oil rainbows in the puddles. Lovely, edgy, unique.

For the Twill of It is a pretty gray/purple metallic duochrome that was released for fall 2013 in the For the Twill of It collection. This polish is gorgeous. It is gray and then when the light changes it turns plum colored or even a teal blue-green. The formula on this is really nice and it glides on smoothly and evenly and is almost opaque in once coat. I used 2 because I always use 2 coats. This has a little shimmer in it as well and this is a really pretty polish. It reminds me of an oil slick where you can see the rainbows in it as the light is reflected. This is a dupe for OPI's Peace & Love & OPI. This has a slight bit more shimmer but the colors are dead on and I have them side by side and they are identical. You won't need both. Also very close is Essence Chic reloaded. The Essence is a shade darker but if you have one you really don't need the other. Same with Gray's Anatomy by Wet n' Wild - it's a few shades lighter so not a dead on dupe, but if you layer it over a gray base first then you can get it close enough that if you have one you really don't need the other.
