Although this weeks color for “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” – taupe – was my starting color for this event in round one, it is also one of the colors I struggle most with. But then I found this beauty:
I really had no idea what polish to use for this week, so I browsed the galleries of the last two rounds. I found “chinchilly” a nice match – and still available – so I bought it last week. But boy-oh-boy, how did I walk past this polish for so long?! It is such a pretty and elegant color, a mix of grey and brown with a subtle purple undertone, and that dusty and dirty look I love in a polish.
essie is the only brand that makes me ignore my “I don’t see a reason why I should pay more than five Euros for nail polish”-Rule on a regular basis, and this polish again proved why – application was flawless, it is opaque after two quickly drying coats, and stays on my nails for longer than one or two days.
Maybe it is time to change the rule to “The only reason why I should pay more than five Euros for nail polish is the name ‘essie’ on the bottle”. 😀
For the nail art I simply added some dots with another taupe – KIKO’s “taupe” from the Mirror collection – and filled the larger dots again with “chinchilly”.
