So pretty! Definitely not an easy color to describe, but Lady Like is indeed a milky mauve, but more nude. I'm more of a black polish or Smokin' Hot Essie type of girl. This is a nice break from the darks, and with spring coming on in Ohio (please?) a nice change, and a rest from the more dramatic shades.I get good coverage from 2 coats, but it's questionable-sometimes 2 gives good coverage, sometimes it takes 3. I cap and shake between hands. The brush, while narrow, really works with my nail beds. My skin is very pink and light, and it's much more flattering thana yellow toned nude. My other nude favorite is OPI Dulce de Leche. They are my go-to polishes for easy to wear colors, for a quick change.

Ladylike is just so beautifully understated! Soft/medium dusty milky mauve with cream finish. Similar to Tickle my France-y indeed but with less of the brown base. This makes it less multifaceted but on me it looks more flattering. Perfectly opaque with two coats and non streaky. I'm a fan.

I love this nail polish! It is my favorite nude type color. I call it my "dead fingernail" polish, because of its cool toned mauve color. It was love at first stroke.I love that this is more opaque than most Essie nudes, which drive me crazy with their sheerness. I think this color would look great with most skin types. I think it's a very diverse mauve. I can see it looking stunning with darker skin tones.I honestly would give this polish an A+. I highly recommend.

I absolutely LOVE this color! Beautiful mauve colors like this are so hard to find. It is a nice nude mauve with a hint of a gray-beige undertone. I couldn't give it a perfect score because I hate that I have to use 3 coats. I wish it were more opaque. I would repurchase it but only because I love the color.

Pretty mauve with a touch of greige. It doesn't look exactly like any of my other neutral shades. Opaque in two coats and dries to a creamy finish.Great color, great formula. I'd buy this one again.

I own quite a few Essie polishes but this one is a favorite. It's a great kind of nude that flatters my skin tone and does not wash it out. I like that it's a subtle soft color but has enough color that it is still noticeable. I always get compliments when wearing. Like all my Essie polishes I need 3 coats to make it look even and I always finish with seche vite. Also like all my Essie polishes I get a good 4 to 5 days of wear which I'm sure it would last longer if I did things like wearing gloves while cleaning and washing dishes. Whenever I'm not sure what color I want to wear I reach for this.

What looks like a pale gray lavender in the bottle is more of a nude once painted on. Rather than leaning purple or gray, once applied it best resembles the color of milky coffee - in a somehow pretty way. The shade is a lovely, flattering nude, even for my pale skin, and the quality is very good. Applies smoothly without streaks, full coverage in two coats, and a nice shiny finish. A winner.

Never in my life have I completely finished up a bottle of nail polish, and I wear nail polish every single day. I finished this and immediately went out and purchased another. I couldn't tell you why I even picked this up as it looks rather boring and blah in the bottle. But once you put this on your nails.. wow! It's just so beautiful. Perfectly neutral but also a little glam. It never fails that I get compliments when I wear this and will always get asked what it is. My one girlfriend loved it SO much she wore it on her wedding day. Don't know which color to wear? I always chose this. It looks fantastic when I have a bit of a tan and looks just as good when I'm more pale.Perfect for anytime of the year. Perfect always!THIS is my all time favorite nail polish, ever.

So glad I chose this color today - it's a beautiful neutral brown-toned lilac that is amazing on its own but lends itself as a base color for nail art with creams, plums and burgundies.
