The Best Lilac Acrylic Nail Polishes – Discover the Highest-Quality Lilac Nails of the Season!

The color of a summer evening as the sun sets, lilac is soft and welcoming. Evoking memories of warm homecomings, and comfortable surroundings, it’s a beautiful mix of pale pink and purple. 

Delicate, yet with a subtle strength, lilac symbolizes burgeoning love, the beginning of a romance and eager anticipation.  Spanning from palest lilac white through to decadently lush near purple, this most feminine of colors can be paired effectively with most shades. However it has a gorgeous impact when mixed with orange, yellow or olive, and a more mystical air if worn with deeper purples and blues. 

Lilac nail polish suggests charm personified, loyalty and love, with a streak of independence for good measure. 

Here are my top three lilac nail polishes:

 

1) OPI Nail Polish – You’re Such a BudaPest

What Makes it Great

You could argue that this is more a periwinkle blue, but for me pale violety lilac is closer to the truth. Whatever you call it, it’s a gloriously subtle shade, encouraging feelings of plushness and luxury. Used on all your nails, it makes a real statement – strong yet feminine, brave yet charming, and would befit any occasion. Under my usual top coat, it remained damage-free for two weeks. 

Where it Could be Improved

It took three coats to achieve a smooth, streak-free finish.

The Final Verdict

This is a truly beautiful color and would suit any skin tone, adding a touch of class to any outfit.

2) ZOYA Nail Polish – Marley

What Makes it Great

With a subtle silver shimmer running through this palest lilac polish, Zoya have produced a nail finish that can be worn day or night. It has blueish undertones, and would look awesome with cream or dove grey, or, if you’re feeling brave, a bright burnt orange. Being that it lasted nearly two weeks without chipping, you have the time to try it with all your closet!

Where it Could be Improved

There were a few bubbles present when I opened the bottle, however, after a couple of gentle rolls, they had broken up and the finish was perfect.

The Final Verdict

A beautiful lilac with the subtlest shimmer of pearlescence throughout, this is a must-have!

3) essie Nail Polish – Lilacism

What Makes it Great

Well, Essie have done it again! Elegant and enchanting, this springtime lilac is whispersoft, full of romance, and subtle promises. With hints of purple, Lilacism is silky smooth, and would complement any skin tone, or occasion. I wore it for nearly two weeks, and lost count of the admiring looks my nails received – not me, just my nails! 

Where it Could be Improved

I needed to apply two coats as the first one was streaky.

The Final Verdict

If you’re after an eye catching and unusual shade, this lilac is the one for you. Silky smooth and beautifully soft, the color is just perfect.
