Essie – Chinchilly

Hey everyone, hope you’re well!

Today I’m wearing Chinchilly by Essie. The name alone makes it sound like the perfect colour to wear his time of year. I would definitely call this a classic colour, not just because it’s from a older collection but because it has a timeless quality.  You could probably wear this five years from now and it would still look fabulous.

I like using classic colours from time to time and Chinchilly is no exception.  It’s a grey, taupe shade and that’s all there is to it really.  No shimmer, no undertones, just Chinchilly.  And by no means is that a bad thing, because it does a really good job of being a simple colour.

As with Bahama Mama it offers a very shiny finish before it’s even got top coat on. It’s a bit darker than I expected, as you can see in the picture above: my nails are darker than the bottle, though it’s still a nice shade.  It’s quite a ‘serious’ colour as well, one that you could wear to work or to add a tougher edge to an outfit.
