Nails of the Day: Chinchilly

Say hello to my new favorite nail polish brand! It took me ages to get one of Essie’s nail polishes since they’re not sold in my country, but I finally had the opportunity to buy one whilst shopping in Austria. The nail polish that I got is in the color ‘Chinchilly‘, which is one of the most popular Essie shades. They had tons of other amazing colors, but I decided to buy only one for starters, because I wasn’t sure if they’re worth the money. I kind of regret that decision now, though. This is literally the most amazing nail polish I’ve ever tried. I love everything about it! Thank god I’m going to London soon so I can get more shades. Which ones do I NEED to buy? 🙂

Anyway, let’s now go the proper review. The brush of this nail polish is really big, which makes the application amazingly easy. I needed two thin coats for the polish to become opaque, but you can also get away with one thicker coat. The nail polish has surprisingly glossy finish, and lasted four days without chipping on my nails, which is my personal record, haha. As I have said, I couldn’t be more satisfied with it. Any other (new) Essie fans here?

    I always have a soft spot for grey nail polishes! I can see why this is one of the more popular shades. Great post! xhttp://catsandclothing.blogspot.com

    Res je lep, eden najlepših 🙂 Essie lakci so super, ampak škoda, ker so pri nas tako dragi in malce nedostopni 🙁

    Jaz imam tudi samo 1 Essie lak, ampak mene prva uporaba ni tako navdušila kot tebe. Ravno ta velika krtačka mi je čudna in mi otežuje nanos (čeprav sem ponavadi fan takih krtačk), poleg tega obstojnost slaba, vsaj za lak, ki stane 10 €. Mogoče je samo moj odtenek tak, ne vem, ampak jaz ne bi še enkrat plačala take cene za Essie lak.

      O, škoda… Katerega pa imaš? Meni noben lak drugače ful dolgo ne zdrži na nohtih pa naj bo še tako drag. OPI in Butter London sta na primer oba dražja od Essie pa sta mi in aplikacija in obstojnost slabši. Jaz imam drugače plan kar nekaj Essie lakov kupiti v Londonu, ker mi majo ful lepe odtenke, tako da upam, da nisem imela tokrat samo sreče…

      Imam en neon odtenek iz ene njihove omejene izdaje – Action. Prekrivnost je drugače super, sploh za neon odtenek, ker sta dovolj samo 2 sloja, ampak krtačka je pa katastrofa. Bi še preizkusila kak drug odtenek, a mi je žal, da sem za tega dala 10 € in zdaj mi je kar težko dati 10 € še za kak drug odtenek, sploh ker vem, da lahko za to ceno dobim več zanimivih lakov drugih znamk (npr. Catrice, ki je meni osebno ena boljših). Drugače pa tudi na meni laki ne zdržijo dolgo, čeprav sem bila zadnjič presenečena, da mi je Joy lak zdražl 3 dni brez krušenja. Presenetljivo.

      Men je pa glih čopič svetoven. Ful ne maram tankih. Sem pa slišala, da so bili včasih čopiči od Essie tanjši, tako da predvidevam, da imam jaz novo verzijo. 🙂

      To pa nisem vedela, da so bili prej tanki. Meni je večja ščetka tudi kul, recimo Catrice mi je zakon. Moja je taka puhasta, ščetine letijo na vse konce. Saj pravim, mogoče sem naletela na tak izdelek, ostali pa so bili kul (spet ta moja sreča).

      Ojej, čopič s ščetinami na vseh koncih pa tudi meni ne bi bil všeč…

    I do love Essie polishes but I think they're quite pricey considering you can get two (or three if they're on 3 for 2) Barry M polishes for the price of one Essie. The wide brush is probably the best thing about them and I find them to be very longlasting so any shade you'll get in London will be a winner 😉 xx

      I don't own and Barry M polishes yet, so I definitely need to check those out as well. Thanks for reminding me! 🙂

    Essie nail polishes in Ireland costare approximately 12-13 euro, which in my opinion is very expensive!! Nevertheless it's a good brand with a big colour selection :)www.rebekasbeautyworld.blogspot.com

      They are not even sold in my coutry. :(But OPI ones are 13€ here as well for example. I agree, that's very expensive for a nail polish, but I just can't help myself! XD
