It’s easy to get totally obsessed with nail polish – it’s a quick mood booster that’s easy to apply and comes in thousands of shades. But here’s the thing about that last part: The massive range of colors makes it really tough to pick just one (remember the last time you were in a nail salon staring at the polish wall?!). If you’ve been searching for the perfect new hue, perhaps it’s time to take a recommendation from shoppers at one of the largest marketplaces in the world: Amazon.
When we asked the retailer which polish has been the most popular over the past six months, we were surprised to find it’s not a pink or red – it’s Essie’s Chinchilly, a sleek, milky granite shade.
Chinchilly is a super versatile neutral that’s flattering on all skin tones and can be worn on any occasion – even to the office – making it appealing to folks who can’t rock year-round neon. With over 12,000 Instagram tags, 1,670 reviews on Amazon, and a 4.5 star rating, it’s clear that this polish is a fave of the masses. (Plus, who can resist such an adorable name?) And at $8.50, the price point is low enough to attract nail art elitists and basic beauty lovers alike.
If you’re inspired to try it, these stunning Chinchilly manicures should get you started:
If a geometric vibe is what you’re after, opt for a couple of fun accent nails like these.
For a chic texture twist, try a matte topcoat over two layers of Chinchilly.
Why pick just one color when you can use three? This cute curved design features a muted rusty red and tiny white dotted accents.
