I think Essie’s new Chillato nail polish might have been the shade I was most excited to try out from the new summer ’15 collection. I own exactly zero lemon or limey green polishes, and considering how gorgeous and fresh it looked in the bottle, I couldn’t wait to give it go!
Described as a ‘frozen cream pistachio’ Chillato is the most stunning not-quite-pastel-not-quite-neon lime green I think I’ve come across. For even and opaque coverage, I needed two coats, but the polish was easy to work with, and dry to a smooth finish. I would definitely recommend a top coat so that it’s as shiny as possible. The wear time for Chillato was great – I got three days of chip free wear with it until I changed my colours.
I’m absolutely in love with the shade! It feels so fresh and different to wear, and I can’t tell you how many people have stopped to ask me what colour it is! It’s the perfect summer colour for so many reasons, primarily just because it’s so pretty! I think this will look awesome when worn with a tan, and it even made my paper white skin look a little darker when I wore it!
Essie’s Chillato will be priced at £7.99 and will be released soon and is available here in the US.
