Nails // Essie Chinchilly
When I got my nails done this time, I'd already decided on a grey shade, specifically Essie Fancy Pants. Unfortunately, when I arrived at the salon, the bottle had gone AWOL. However, they did have Essie Chinchilly which seemed the next best thing.
I adore this shade! It's grey but almost a lilac. The formula was a little patchy and I ended up with some bubbling on my nails which is frustrating, but you can't really see unless you look closely. Autumn is the perfect time for grey nails and I love the idea of a matte top coat on these for a cashmere feel.
*As an aside, I had my heart set on super long, pointy, glossy black talons for Halloween. I've had it planned for months- get a new set of nails a week before, have them shaped into long stiletto points, and then have them trimmed and shaped into my usual round style a couple of days after Halloween. That was until my best friend booked her wedding for 30th October! I'm not sure she'd forgive me for helping her in and out of her dress with razor sharp talons. Next year!
