Funny you should mention this. I of course have had about 7 bottles of Chinchilly over the years, because it's one of my favorite colors. I've had a lot of inconsistency in the shade, bottle to bottle. Most of the bottles have no iridescence, which is fine for me, because I prefer solid/flat shades. BUT, I've had some bottles that look absolutely lavender on, and some look more muddy grey. I have been known to order bottles online (amazon) here and there, and I have noticed some seem more watery, so I wonder if thinners have been added. I now try to buy them at the drug stores in town and only if they don't look separated when they've been sitting there (not shaken first). Essie seems to have gone down in quality.

Aha! I knew if somebody else had noticed the lavender iridescence, it would be you! My current bottle is definitely a flat colour & I've got used to it now, but the polish is definitely thicker to paint than the iridescent ones were. They were watery enough for me to debate 3 coats, because you could still make out the whites of my nails under 2. I prefer it thicker.

Just got my nails done on Monday. I saw a picture of nails I liked call pink sweater kit. My lady picked out the colors for me but they don’t quite look like the picture. Oh well!

What I wanted-

After almost a year of not doing my nails I’m recently back at it. It’s amazing to me how much happier I am with my nails done — who cares if my pants don’t fit, this makes me feel put together!

The color turned out much darker than I thought it would based on online pics...
For the next two weeks I would like to be referred to as Elvira. :lol:

This is actually the replacement color for one called Wine O' Clock that I used down to the very dregs! WOC was a little lighter and redder, but this one is kind of growing on me (no pun intended!).

Love your user name BTW!

Now I am inspired to paint my nails tonight. Great colors out there!!!

All the way through college I painted my nails every day. Now it’s a few times a week. I strangely have never had a manicure or pedicure.

We’ll call this one The First Marriage Manicure.

As in “It seemed like a good idea at the time... but in retrospect... What Was I Thinking?!”

That's so funny!!

Also, I love you deep wine colour - can you tell me what it is?

Alex, it’s a gel color from Ulta. I don’t see a name for the color, just a number. I actually did my nails in this color again a few weeks ago (that’s what First Marriage replaced!).

Auditioning colors today... and out of remover!

(I think I’ll go with the pinky color - Opi by Popular Vote. But I’m going to seek out the Tickle my France-y just in case.)

VR, the color on your pinky is the one I was going for -- I think that's lovely!

I don’t know if it’s still in Opi’s catalog. I got it at TJMaxx yesterday. It is a very nice shade! On my screen it shows just a hint of coral that’s not there IRL.

The name is street flair. Think it goes great with blue jeans!

I love the shape of your nails! I have horrible nails that break at or below the quick and would love to have the shape of your nails. I got my first gel mani in a light ballet slipper pink in hopes it will help them grow so I can rock a magenta polish!
