Catrice Absolutely Chinchilly!

Hi all,

Today I have one of the new Catrice colors for you: Absolutely Chinchilly! I posted earlier about this color in a comparison post, where I showed you that it's a dupe for Essie Chinchilly. Here is a full review on Absolutely Chinchilly! today.

catrice absolutely chinchilly new color 2010 dupe essie chinchilly nail polish nailswatchesCatrice Absolutely Chinchilly!, three coats under artificial light. The sun was giving weird colors, so I took this pic under my desk lamp, but the color is exactly how it looks on my nails. Absolutely Chinchilly! is a khaki creme. This color is a dupe for Essie Chinchilly, making it an affordable replacement if you're in The Netherlands! Essie costs € 13,95 a bottle here I believe, so it's an easy choice if Catrice is only € 2,49 a bottle!

The application was smooth and easy, unlike Essie's version. I prefer Catrice over Essie in this case. It takes three coats for opacity, but the polish is easy to apply so I didn't mind doing another coat.

I don't like the color though. Like what I had with Essie Chinchilly, it brings out the red in my skin, giving me slight lobster claws. The color just doesn't work with my skintone, unfortunately!

Bottom line: if you liked Essie Chinchilly, you'll definately like this one, too, but if you own one, you won't need the other.

The product in this post was given to me by the manufacturer or their PR company for consideration. For more information, please read my disclaimer.


  1. I'd say this is a very nice colour, I really like it (and bought it a couple of days ago, yay!). It's a nice colour for the season, and I'm sure it fits your nails, especially if you wear matching clothes, no?

  2. ooo i love that color but fortunately i do own chin chilly so i guess i dont need it :)

  3. Lola yes it should fit with matching clothes but unfortunately the polish brings out the red in my skin and I don't like the red look so to say :(
