Essie: Chinchilly

This is 3 coats Essie Chinchilly with 2 coats Seche Vite.  I was actually surprised how much I loved this color.  It is a little on the sheer side, so it definitely needed 3 coats and it actually could have used 4.  I had no issues with the formula, it went on smooth and I didn't get bald spots.  This is a really clear grey, it's not very dusty which is kind of weird to say about a gray, but I think it's fairly accurate.  I think this would have looked amazing with some shimmer or something on top too.  Maybe next time.  If you like grey, this is definitely a must have!

hey Midge - it's your old roomie Jane ;) I discovered your blog a while ago, and catch up on it now and then. I am in love w. grey - OPI's "You don't know Jacques" is one of my faves - and I've been curious to try Chinchilly. It's a less harsh grey than Jacques and one of these days I'll try it out. <3 this blog!
