day seventy nine, essie chinchilly

alright people...prepare yourself...for a RAVE. i LOVe this polish. i am really unhappy that i have to take it off (and truthfully it's pretty rare that this happens and i've mentioned it every time it has happened...to be so struck by a colour and adore it so much that you want to take it away to a desert island!). this is from one of the newest essie 2009 collections. not only is the name adorable (chinchillas are so funny and adorable..not to mention so fun to pet. they're quite clever animals!) but they capture the fur colour so wonderfully. it's grey, it's taupe...it's kind of milky all at the same time. it's not like any other grey/taupe i own. and i'll admit that greyish taupes are my favourite dirty neutral..they're just so much more interesting to look at than plain taupes (not that i mind...but interesting is always nicer).

this applied wonderfully. i was really worried i was going to get into a situation like i did with island hopping...that too many coats (3) would change the colour of the polish and it wouldn't match the bottle anymore. and that was frustrating since i'm a 3 coat kinda gal. but this one did not have that problem at all. it is just so NICE to look at. so different! oh i love it!!!!

Liz i love when you comment, it always makes me happy! i was browsing your blog and marvelling at your awesome nail shape. i wish i could handle long nails like yours!!!

chinchilly is AWESOME. when i first pulled it out of the box (since i bought like...40 polishes in one go from transdesign) i was kinda meh about it...then i picked it up a few days before this and looked at it again and iwas gobsmacked. it just called to me!! i couldn't wait to put it on. i want to put it back on!!
