Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Grey Area Here! Simply put, this color is the bees knees. This color is a staple in my polish stash, I'm on my third bottle! I love that it is the perfect grey for fall. My skin is on the paler side, and I have yellow skin tone and it perfectly complements me. The mix of lavender and taupe sets it apart from other greys, which are sometimes hit or miss. If you are looking for a good neutral polish that is a little out-of-the-box, this is your bottle. Chinchilly is the perfect color for work or play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chilly in a Cool Kind of Way Every time I got to the nail salon. I never have to wait around and try to think about what color to choose, I just always go "Chinchilly". The color is perfect its gives off a relaxed and trendy look. Its color is never going to clash with any outfit and is the perfect color for any type of occasion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the perfect shade! I have been using (and loving) this color for two years at the recommendation of my best friend. This is the perfect shade for every season and every event. You can dress it up or down. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to! Chinchilly is my favorite Essie color. It has a pink undertone, which makes it work great with a pink or purple accent nail, but is also a great stand-alone color. I especially love it for fall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to Color! This is a polish that I will buy again and again. It is fun and chic, and perfect for fall. And it goes with everything! I get compliments on it every day :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best work color!! When it comes to work, I'm limited on color choices that are "appropriate" (their standards, not mine), and this shade is my favorite! It's far from the boring beiges, but still keeps me in the neutral guidelines. It's not a one coater if you want it to be opaque, two coats are needed to keep from seeing any nail lines underneath. Granted, if you did one thick coat it probably would work, but I find it dries faster and is easier to work with by doing 2 thinner coats instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this COLOR. this COLOR. What a perfect balance of grayish/purple hues-giving it an elegant yet fresh appeal to fingers and toes. With Essie's undeniable high-gloss finish with even application, my fingers looked like I walked right out of the salon. I applied only two coats and was pleased with the accuracy of the color in the bottle and the consistency in the color on my nails. A loyal Essie-er for years now and happy to have this great all-year color in my ever expanding collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally the best colour ever I bought this colour a while ago, but I was a chronic nail biter. I recently decided to grow out my nails, and nine times out of ten I have chinchilla on my nails. I have an extensive nail polish collection, but for some reason I always gravitate back to this dignitary colour. I always get the mot compliments with this colour because it's unlike any other. The formula is great and the colour is one of a kind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably one of the most versatile colors ever! This is one of my favorite Essie shades ever. Chinchilly is extremely versatile. I wear it on any occasion-- work, formal and casual situations, parties, night outs, anything. It can stand out a bold color yet at the same time, it is sophisticated enough to blend in a more elegant setting.The formula is smooth. Not too goopy and extremely easy to apply. I highly recommend this specific Essie shade!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect soft neutral gray This has been a favorite color of mine for years. Not too blue or too yellow like some grays can be -- perfectly balanced hue, and not too dark. Looks great on fair skin like mine for an updated take on classic neutral polish. Chic, but not too-edgy. Sheer 1st coat prevents the finished look from being too opaque or hard, results in a soft silky pale gray reminiscent of its namesake :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Any Season! I bought this color a few months ago and I am so glad I did! I can wear it in the summer, winter, spring, or fall. I never have to work about it matching my outfit because, since it's neutral, it goes with everything. The color is the perfect blending of grey and sand. From dressing it up to keeping it casual, this poohs is perfection at it's finest. I would definitely go with it! ❤️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite essie color! I read about this being a great color by essie, and it is absolutely true. I wear it year-round. I have had many compliments including from strangers in the mall asking me what color nail polish I am wearing. Whether I am tan in the summer and spring or paler in the cooler months, it is a very flattering color for my skin tone. Highly recommend this color. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous color...stays on forever! This was my very first Essie nail polish and I love the color. It's a gorgeous grey with a hint of light purple. I used one of the Essie topcoats to give it some shine and I've had the same polish on for going on three weeks now and it has literally not chipped at all! It looks like I just put it on. I love it an cannot wait to purchase more Essie products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Honestly, chinchilly is the most perfect shade for any occasion. I am in love with the color. You can wear it any time of any day of any month. It is a calm and simple color, yet there is so much more to it. It is different than any color I have ever seen. I am always complemented on my nails when I wear chinchilla. Overall, great nail polish/color :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECTION Essie Chinchilly is a very pretty dove grey polish, which leans towards a soft lavender color in certain lights. This neutral color polish will go with anything! Applied smoothly in just 2 coats and stayed chip free until I took it off a week later. It was beautifully shiny but I added Essie’s Good to Go top coat for good measure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a fall classic this was the second essie polish i ever purchased and remains one of my favorites years later. it's the perfect grey with slight purple undertones that goes with everything and is easy to wear. it's my go-to fall color, not to mention the formula is so smooth and easy to apply. i can't say enough good things about chinchilly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes to Chinchilly! I got engaged while wearing chinchilly so I will always remember and love this shade! It is a beautiful gray color that looks great on fair skin. It really goes great with everything too, a perfect neutral shade. I especially love wearing it in the fall and winter, but it can really be worn year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most compliments from this color! This color has people always asking me... "What Color!? I love it!" Warm, grey, taupe... I've bought this one several times over the last few years and hope Essie continues to produce. Creamy and lays down so nicely... looks great against my light olive-toned skin. Personal Essie Favorite!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE I've had chinchilly for over a year now and it's a color I wear all the time! It's become one of my staples in my collection! I don't think I could go without it! And it's also pretty to add accent colors too!!! It's such an amazing color! I can't sing its praises enough!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to color! I finally got my hands on this color a couple of months ago and I can't believe I waited so long to do so. It's the absolute perfect shade of grey! I love all of my Essie colors, but I find myself picking this color up every other manicure because I can't get enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I love this color so much I've bought 3 bottles! Perfect for any season! Looks great when your tan or winter months. It's a taupey grayish with hint of mauve. It's my go to when I want more than a neutral. I get lots of compliments when I wear it, I just love it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In L-O-V-E I bought this product because I assume that this fall it would go with anything I am going to wear! I used it and it is so versatile, it looked great at my internship and added perfect flair when I go out. Add the "matte about you" and you have a whole other look!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great color, difficult application This is one of a few essie colors that I love wearing, but avoid it because I can't stand how unevenly it goes on. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist, but no matter what I do, I can't seem to get it to go on smoothly. I'll stick with getting it at the salon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pulchritudinous color I bought this nail polish to my sister as a gift, and she loved it! When she wore it, I couldn't stop staring at her nails because the nail polish just stood out. I couldn't resist color, so I polished my mom's nails and she was very satisfied with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A staple in any wardrobe! This is a shade and that I constantly find myself wearing! It's a great look for a professional, but somewhat different nail, a chic new accent, or just your everyday go- to shade. You will definitely make use of the color, it goes with practically everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good formula! After reading so many reviews and seeing so many swatches I just HAD to get it! I love how the colour is not *just* a typical gray. I love the added hues of sort of a lavender or lilac to it. I've worn it dozens of times and it never seems to fail me.
