essie Chillato

essie Chillato The Daily VarnishA few days ago I was buying a fancy new hose nozzle at Lowe’s when the cashier could not stop talking about my nail color. While I love talking nail polish with just about anyone it at least confirmed that my obsession with Chillato isn’t totally crazy.

Chillato is from the essie summer 2015 Peach Side Babe collection and is a lovely light chartreuse. I don’t want to call this polish pastel as the color isn’t pale but there is a lot of white in this polish.

The formula is unfortunately a bit tricky. While the pigmentation is good it is streaky. There is no way I could get away with less than three coats.

I have nothing like this in my collection and I adore the color so I’m willing to put up with the formula issues (I’ve even already used it in some nail art!). But if you’re not particularly skilled in doing your nails this polish will prove to be quite difficult.

The essie Peach Side Babe collection is currently available at Ulta. Chillato is included in the mini set for this collection.

Make sure to check out my reviews of some of the other polishes in the Peach Side Babe collection; Peach Side Babe and Sunset Sneaks.

As always, there are swatches under the jump.

  1. That polish is the one I zoomed in on when I first saw this collection. It is so distinct! I am on a low/no buy (okay, I fell off the wagon when my all-time long term #1 lemming became available for less than half what the evilBay prices are but now I am back up on it!) and these collections coming out are killing me! I think I need to sell some of my polish so I can buy more polish. *perfect nail polish addict logic*
