Essie Smokin’ Hot

Essie Smokin' HotI spotted Essie’s Winter 2010 A Winter’s Tale collection at Ulta the other day (Essie is currently buy one get one half off) and of course had to pick up a couple. I got Smokin’ Hot and Going Incognito.

Smokin’ Hot is a super shiny dark gray creme. It really does remind me of smoke. Application was just ok. The formula is slightly on the thin side (not shocking for Essie!) so I did use three coats. I had a little bit of a drag issue on a few nails (you can really tell on my pointer finger).

When I picked this up I thought I may have a dupe for it in my collection, but alas, I do not. OPI You Don’t Know Jacques! is a more muddy gray and Nina Ultra Pro Never Glum Plum has more purple.
