Essie Chinchilly

Just a quick review on my latest nail polish addition, Chinchilly has been on my "want" list for quite a while since I saw it gracing the finger nails of a colleague.

It's a really lovely grey shade, with much more depth behind it that other grey shades which can look a little dull.

On applying the first coat it looks a little streaky but the second coat soon rectified that and made the colour completely opaque.  I always think that drying time is a big factor in deciding whether or not to repurchase a nail polish, this particular Essie polish doesn't disappoint and I was able to pour a glass of wine without fear of smudging after only 30 minutes!
You can see that the finished result is a lovely slate grey with a hue of lavender.  Normally, I would reserve a grey shade for the winter months but there is a slightly summery feel to this one so it's an all weather wearer!

Keep posing!
