Cocktail Bling is a classic Essie shade. It is a very pretty pale grey with blue tones - cool and icy. It has a creme finish and is opaque in two coats, drying quickly to a shiny finish. It has an excellent formula, applying very easily with no streaks or patches. Only a light hand and thin coats are needed with this polish. This colour is very classic and pretty, I believe it would suit all skin tones, particularly those with cool skin tones. It is suitable for conservative environments. It lasted on my nails for 4 days, less than the 5 days I expect from Essies, however I was heavy on my hands while I was wearing this and believe that on a normal week it would have lasted the 5 days very well. I can happily recommend this Essie cult favourite.

Gorgeous cool toned grey with a hint of blue. Office appropriate, if that matters to you. Has a nice shine, even without a topcoat, and good formula for an Essie. I think it's a color that can be worn at any time of the year, even if you're a seasonal polish wearer. I especially like this cool color on a hot humid day. One of my favorite Essie's of all times and highly recommended.

I love the color! It is a light bluish grey color that pulls purple in certain lightings. Great staying power! I bought the mini version and would definitely repurchase in full size if I can find it. I have yellow undertones and usually stick with warm tones. Cool tones usually wash me out but this looks so flattering on my nails! Absolutely love it!

Beautiful, versatile shade of grey with the usual Essie formula, which works great for me. Not much to be said here, I think this is worth having.

The PERFECT mix of blue and grey! From the Winter 2011 Collection, Essie's Cocktail Bling is a soft, medium/pale bluish-grey creme with a creme finish. The shade is unusual without being weird-looking. Borderline-conservative, but not boring at all. It looks beautiful on the nail, very flattering and perfect for year-round wear.

Excellent formula with this one too. Very smooth application and it was practically opaque in one coat (but I always use two).

I would definitely buy this one again. LOVE!!!

It's a nice color and had no issues with applying, drying or chipping before day 5.

Gorgeous grey-blue colour. I find the durability of Essie polishes hit and miss, this colour lasted me 4 days with no chips (2 coats, no top coat). The brush is small but application is easy.

I love this nail polish. It is so easy to apply. I absolutely love the colour - opaque within 2 coats. It also lasted quite a while,even though I tend to ruin my nail polish within minutes. And though the colour was released with the winter collection, I think this could be worn in other seasons. Really pretty, different, but not too out there.

Found this on clearance from the Wintter 2011 collection for 4 dollars! It's a blue-toned gray. I love the color, the application. Very different but the formula of the polish seems to be great quality. My Ma didn't care for the color but I think it's pretty unique.
