I've been hearing so much about this color! I think the technical term is "greige", but either way I really like it. This is three coats of Essie Chinchilly, but I could have gotten away with two, I just messed up my pinky on the second coat so I had to do another one. I just feel so luxurious and glamorous in this color! I feel like I have another color like it, but this one went on so wonderfully with thick coats, and I just love the Essie formula. Love it!
