NOTD: Essie Mink Muffs

I totally have a crush on Jaques, as in You Don't Know Jaques by O.P.I. The.Prettiest.Taupe.Ever. I do not own it though.. yet! What to do? Use the next best thing of course, Mink Muffs by Essie! It's more brown than YDKJ but still a pretty good substitute in my opinion. I absolutely love it!

This was a tough cookie to photograph, it's slightly more grey in real life but I just couldn't get the camera to capture it.

Think this bottle picture might be a little more color accurate.

I don't know what to call this color, it's not really brown and it's not really taupe, it's somewhere in between. Brown'ish taupe? Taupe'ish brown? It's gorgeous anyway, can't believe it's been sitting in my Helmer untried for so long! I got the whole collection right as it came out and just now grabbed this bottle for the first time. What was I thinking?! It applied really well, but was a little bit sheer, it took 3 to 4 coats to get it opaque. I'm sure I could have gotten away with only 3 coats but I'm a perfectionist and had to do 4.

That's all for today!
Have a nice day and thanks for reading!
