I got a manicure a few weeks ago with OPI’s Dulce du Leche, and I have been seeking a dupe that’s a few dollars cheaper and easier to find. I’ve come pretty close with Essie’s Eternal Optimist.
Essie describes this polish as “a spiced tea rose with a dash of cream,” which is a very accurate description. It’s a nice, work appropriate pink that makes your hands look polished. As far as application, the polish has a nice consistency (not too thin or too thick) and applies and dries easily. I will be reaching for this regularly!
