NAIL POLISH REVEALED: Essie Grays & Mattes

Beauty, Fashion, Fitness & Nails



Feeling like wearing a darker shade but not in the mood for a deep red, brown or blue?  Well, that’s exactly how I was feeling when I chose to wear a Power Clutch by Essie.

Power Clutch is a flat deep gray … it leans towards the greener side of the color wheel.  Casting a deep gray green shade on your nails.  Super easy to apply with Essie’s narrow nail polish brush.  No streaks and only needs two coats to get perfect, flawless coverage.  I also decided to wear it with 1 coat of Matte About You by Essie. (Shown Below)
I love the way this color looks in matte.  You be the judge, check out the swatches below.

Maintain those gorgeous nails and always stay polished!  Even if it’s wearing a clear coat on those … I don’t have time to do my nails, kind of days.  🙂  Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more nail art, swatches and comparisons!
