For my last mani of the month, I chose Essie Smokin’ Hot (Winter 2010) , a smoky, purplish grey creme:

Picture taken in natural light.  This applied well in two coats.  It’s unlike any other shade of grey I’ve tried before!  Purplish grey, greyish purple…grurple? has definitely grown in popularity.  Whatever it’s called, I love it!  Somehow it’s both warm and cool at the same time.  The shade is deliciously dark and smoky.  I can’t describe why but it definitely looks sexy to me.  I paired this with OPI Meet Me on the Star Ferry on my toes.
