Just bought my very first bottle of Essie nail polish!!! So exciting. I first tried this color on at a nail salon in SF and had it painted on my toes. I thought it was beautiful and I had to get it. It's like a purple/grayish taupe to me. Sophisticated, maybe even work-appropriate. Anyway, bought it at Target for ~$8. Don't think I've ever paid so much for nail polish before but this may be the first of many. Oh why Essie, why...why must all your colors be so tempting to buy? It didn't help that I loved how smooth and easy it is to apply.
