Essie Chinchilly Nail Varnish
Essie Chinchilly nail varnish has been on my wishlist for a while. I have a *thing* for grey polish. I don’t know what it is about it that I like so much: it’s classy but interesting, simple but eye-catching… if I’m feeling uninspired and stood staring at my collection, I will inevitably go for a grey.
And this is a really lovely grey. It’s almost lavender-toned in certain lights and looks soft (am I the only one who thinks that?). I’ve described greys as ‘dove grey’ before, but I think this is the truest representation of that description that I’ve seen.
This took two coats of polish and is topped with Seche Vite.
You can buy this classic polish HERE.
Essie Stylenomics Review
This vampy beauty is the namesake of the 2012 Essie ‘Stylenomics’ collection. It is a lovely dark green with a little hint of grey. It is interesting enough to make it look less goth-like, but dark enough to still be statement. In the bottle it looks slightly uninspiring but has been a nice change from the super dark reds I usually go for when I want something dramatic.
This was perfect coverage in 2 coats, and topped with Seche Vite.
You can buy it HERE. I’ve also reviewed Recessionista and Head Mistress from the Stylenomics collection, both of which are lovely.
Essie Lapis of Luxury
This beautiful polish has been on my wish list for a while and I finally bought it in my Dubai holiday haul. And I am not disappointed.
essie Lapis of Luxury is a cornflower blue that has a slight lilac tone to it that makes it really flattering and pretty. In the bottle it looks fairly boring and standard, but when on the nails it comes into its own.
