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 :)
