I am a nail polish addict and am always looking for the new shade for the season. I love this color, it is a grey/taupe/purple. It is a nice neutral shade and can be warn as a neutral all year long. I love the brush as it is a nice size and easily applies. The only think about this nail polish that is a negative is that it does chip easier than my OPI brands.

This color is perfect for fall-- but could be worn year round! I'm a huge fan of essie polishes and this one did not disappoint! perfect gray with a bit of purple- flattering on all skin tones!

I'm never a fan of neutral/taupe/brownish colors, but this is so classic and wonderful. I am very pale, but this color looks fantastic with my tone. Really, it will compliment all tones. It's primarily grey with brown undertones as others have said. I only notice the lavander undertone when I'm outside in natural light.
The only irritation of mine is that it's a little streaky due to how watery the formula is. Essie is handsdown my fav nailpolish and I don't generally wear anything else, but lately I have been getting a few watery colors formula wise. Still perfect nonetheless, you just need 3 coats for a totally opaque look.

This color was the color that sparked my nail polish addiction. Bought it last Fall 2010 after seeing someone wearing it and ADORE it. I also did not even know about MUA until then! I used to wear nail polish only in the summer and only on my toes, but this color changed it all and a year later I dont even remember the last time that my nails were naked! *gasp* I just happen to be wearing this color again and still love it like the first time. It is a gray with hints of brown and lavender, I have no color like it in my growing collection. For reference I am cool toned NW20/N4

Bought this yesterday, applied last night and today I got my first chip. Ugh. The color is beautiful-it's straight up gray on me-there is no lavender or taupe as other reviewers have said. The color is much lighter than Metro Chic or Merino Cool as well. I needed three coats to get opaque and no streaks. What is up with the brush? The width is so narrow that I felt like I was using a stick to apply the polish--really disappointed with the brush and the fact that it chipped the first day with a base and top coat. On the upside the color is beautiful. So, would I repurchase? Not sure......

This is an amazing Greyish silver color. It's perfect for all skin tones, I love Essie polish it is long lasting I got so many compliments while wearing it.

I adore this color! Normally I'm not a fan of neutrals/taupes, but I made an exception for this beauty. It was an impulsive buy. I saw the color and knew I needed it. As soon as I swatched it at home I was in love :) This is going to be a great fall color! It's classy and pretty. It's also not really streaky (and Essie is usually streaky..) at all which pleased me. Opaque in 2 coats. Great formula!

My favorite color by far. I've tried a bunch of different greys but I always come back to this one. I always get compliments when I wear it. I feel like this color in particular is pretty long lasting too; If I apply a top coat every day or every other day I can get my manicure to last two weeks, but I've tried a few other Essie colors and they didn't last as long. My only complaint is that the bottle has become very goopy, making it difficult to apply, plus the layer is then so thick it takes a thousand hours to dry. However, I usually get my manicures done at a nail place, which is the reason I continue to get this color.

I agree, it's a beautiful neutral gray with a bit of taupe. I thought the ridge filler base I used made it streaky and hard to apply, but from the reviews it's the polish. With two coats most of my nail is opaque, but the bases of a few nails are more streaky. I don't like the brush. I'd still buy again, it's a great color.

I love this color in the bottle, but wasn't sure how it would look on me. Fortunately, I loved it on and my sister-in-law gave me a compliment on it. I would definitely buy this color again, but gave took a lippie off for the thick streaky formula and stupid thin brush (they need the OPI brush). If you loved this but want something a little darker, Merino Cool is great, too. Wearing it right now :)

This is not too flattering on my skin tone but I just LOVE the colour. I have this attraction to these new grey toned polishes for some reason. In the sun... wow is it ever nice to look at... so unusual. It almost looks like a pale greyish lavender. Also I wasn't expecting the great quality of this polish. I just figured there was a lot of hype. The thing is this colour goes on opaque and streak free and lasts sooo much longer than the other polishes that I own. I wore this for a few days straight without having to touch up on it. I bought another Essie polish "Eternal Optimist" because I now love this brand and I wanted something that had a more everyday look.

I bought this color when I had a coupon for Essie nail polish at my local drug store. It is a beautiful warm grey cream. However, once I got it home I realized I had a very close dupe for it (Petites Vintage Gray), so I decided to return it. But I do love this color and would repurchase it if I run out of my other dupe.

I really thought I would like this one more than I do. It's a beautiful color, a medium grey with some warmth to it, but doesn't look as good on me as I had hoped- I hoped it would be a touch warmer. I've been lusting after this polish after seeing all the girls pinning it on Pinterest- it just looks like such a great neutral! There's nothing wrong with the polish itself, it's the standard Essie great coverage and wear, but this one just isn't for me. Too bad, because it really looks so beautiful on everyone else. Maybe I can franken it with a bit of Essie "little brown dress" or something.

This color is very pretty. I'm not sure if it look that great on me so I don't wear it often. It also dried up quickly in the bottle (or maybe I bought an old one?

I'm so fickle about nail polish colors, and thought I would buy this and wear it only once. I was sooo wrong, this is my HG polish color. It's a beautiful grey color, that is super flattering. I get compliments on this shade all the time. I will probably need to buy another bottle once this one runs out, and I never use an entire bottle of a nail polish color.

Chinchilly is one of those shades that I picked up off the shelf on a whim at the nail salon when I had become bored with the natural pink look of OPI Passion.
Turns out it was a great choice. I am constantly getting stopped by strangers and asked what color it is. I even bought my dry cleaner a bottle because she was unable to one.
The reviews on color make me chuckle because it does seem to have some chameleon qualities to it. On me I see a lavender taupe with maybe a bit of gray. But I see to others it is a 'true gray'. And funny enough in some lighting it has a green hue to it to some. I was stopped in two evening cocktail events and asked where I had found the green polish!
I just sent a bottle to a friend undergoing surgery to help take her mind off of things and she called completely excited because it matched the color of her Weimaraners.

Great consistency, not too thick or watery. It came out darker than I was expecting, since I was hoping it might be similar to Deborah Lippmann's Waking Up in Vegas, but seeing it on, I don't mind! This is a great neutral polish that I'll go to again and again!!

I love this color! I have short nails and I just can't explain why gray would look as good as it does....well, it just DOES! Nail polish was never really important to me until I tried this. I am a convert because of this color.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
I tried it yesterday for the first time. It looks great, I simply love it. It is the most vivid gray I have ever tried. I do not know if it is easy to apply, I always have my nails done by professionals. The color though is fantastic!

I really love this color, but the streakiness, or number of coats required to make this look good (like most Essie np, IMO), is frustrating. The color is interesting - it has a little duo-chrome or something to it that makes it a lovely taupe-purple-grey. This type of color is a definite fave of mine. However, this requires at least 3 coats to get the true color payoff. I prefer OPI and Zoya for this reason. I find most Essie colors to be streaky, and require a lot of work to get the true color to show. I enjoy this color - I just wish Zoya made colors like this! This was $8 at ULTA.
