I did just that in a fairly recent blog post where I paired this with a gritty flaky top coat. I love the quick dry polishes and reviewed them last week.
It's unique on its own, really unique. It's taupe with purple undertones compared to a brown. It can be similar to Miss Fancy pants, but not a dupe to me.
Have a nice day! And thank you for all your work, you just convinced me to get Master plan for this fall ;. Thanks for all your hard work. Do you happen to know if their is a gel couture dupe of Chinchilly?
Any thoughts or a chance in heck you would compare the two? How do you feel about the colour "greige"? Kind of a combo of grey and beige When you can't figure out what nail polish to wear, it's a great neutral tone that will go with everything.
When I get stuck on a new colour I really want to purchase, I go looking for swatches. Something a little lighter like Glamour Purse? One with a bit of mauve in it like Don't Sweater It?
Or is that too close to Merino Cool? The problem is, that everyone takes pictures of the polishes in different kinds of lighting, so in one pic Mink Muffs is this medium plush taupe and in others a darker brown.
Which is then hard to compare next to something like Glamour Purse which I also really love, but comparing two different pics from two different sources doesn't give me an exact picture of the right taupe polish for me. I just need a good solid pic, with the taupey browns right next to each other that will show me how they all look! That's where I come in with these comparisons. I know comparisons are the kinds of things I want to see on other people's blogs, so if I can do them for you with polishes from my own stash, my hope is that it's helpful.
So back to 'greige'. How do all these Essie greige's compare? Let's check it out! Take It Outside is the lightest of them all, with more taupe in it than the others.
Master Plan is a shade or so darker and Chinchilly just a touch darker still. Master Plan and Chinchilly are incredibly close not dupes , but seeing them side by side, I'm not sure I really need both. Mochacino is the darkest and also has the most brown to it. It's still a grey mixed with brown though. It's also FULL of tiny silver shimmer which looks really pretty when it catches the light. I really love this polish. It came out last year in the Fall Collection.
I have the mini cube of this collection, which is why I'm holding a top coat in this pic so my hand doesn't look like a ridiculous claw trying to hold those tiny bottles ;. Whenever I run out of my mini, I will definitely be repurchasing this polish in a full-size bottle. The formula is a bit thicker, but not difficult to apply. This is 2 coats, but it was very close to being nearly there with only one coat. I discovered this soft grey polish because of my friend Ruve's instagram.
She's always had the best taste and style, even when we were kids. I remember when we were 12 years old and Bootlegger was THE store to shop and buy clothes, and everyone was going crazy over the nail polishes they had at the cash wrap. There were only a few colours to choose from, so Ruve picked this beautiful bright aqua blue, reminiscent of Essie's In the Cabana. She looked so cool wearing that polish, whereas I chose to buy the two ugliest nail polish colours in the store: I had to buy it.
I love the colour of this greige, it's somewhere in between Take It Outside and Chinchilly but maybe a little closer to Chinchilly. So, because they don't look terrible when left alone, I haven't had any major incentive to carve out a block of valuable time and plunk my butt into a massage chair and have them fussed over. Not familiar with it? Shellac is a purported godsend for those of us who work with our hands -- staying in place, unchipped and un-peeling for up to 14 days!
It is applied at a salon in a series of four steps. A UV base coat that dries in 10 seconds, the color coat, a UV Top coat and the finishing touch -- a UV lamp which "cooks" it all and sets it in place for 14 plus days. I've read that it'll actually stay on longer but your nail growth will start to become quite evident after the two-week mark. The only hitch is that you have to go back to the salon to have it removed by a pro.
But, as someone who types for a living and does dozens o' dishes it would be nice to leave the salon without a smudge for once it has ZERO drying time and have the polish actually look nice for more than three hours.
What nail trends are you liking for fall? Dig those pointy Fergie talons or Rihanna's colorfest? Don't be shy, sing their praises. I welcome the debate. In general they are paler, more veering towards whites or neutrals, rather than brown or mauvy purples, but still, they can have those undertones. These 5 polishes, some of which fairly new, others more well-established shades in my nail polish collection, range from the off white to near grey with a purple tinge to it. I bought this on my most recent trip to England.
It retails for a whopping 14 pounds which is nearly 20 euros. I still want to write a full review of this polish and see how long it lasts and what it looks like on the nail, but when it comes to greige nail polish colors, this takes the cake. On to one of my favorites in this shade range. This is the most neutral of all the shades I am showing you. The funny thing is that if you put this next to a true nude color, it looks far more grey and if you put it with grey it looks far more pink.
Count in the fact that OPI is my favorite nail polish brand, and you have yourself a mix for a favorite nail polish shade right there. I am wearing it on my nails in this blog post. Like the OPI shade above this one, this keeps a very nice middle ground and I love the mauve undertone this has.
It makes it ultra flattering against my pale hands, yet it makes for a great base coat to layer under one of my many glitter nail polishes. I did just that in a fairly recent blog post where I paired this with a gritty flaky top coat. German drugstore brand P2 is known for its good quality polishes. So when I was in Germany last year, I wanted to try a few.
I picked up this darker grey polish with a purplish undertone at that time. In a way this polish is what got my craze for finding the perfect greige nail polish started. This was the first polish I could place in that category that I owned and I wore this quite a bit during fall, as it is a perfect fall shade. I am wearing it on my nails, accompanied by a liquid sand accent nail in a similar color, also by P2, in this blog post.
