Essie Playa del Platinum - swatches and review

Today I want to show you a really pretty greige cream polish from Essie! Meet Playa del Platinum! The name gives a hint of its elegance. This is a wonderful color for the occasions when you want something less bright but still a bit more than a nude.


Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A mousy greige.

Collection: Essie Resort Collection Summer 2010.

Opacity: Very good! This is two coats.

Formula: Good! A bit thin formula, but not runny. Easy to control.

Brush: Ok. A bit thin, but ok to apply with.

Shine: Very shiny on its own so I have no top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate! But even more gorgeous irl!

Grade: 5/5 :D

This is a gorgeous greige polish which is both classic and elegant! I really love this polish! Both on it's own and as a base for nail art.

How do you like Playa del Platinum?
Are you into greige polishes?

  3. Fan vad kul att se det här lacket! jag har bilder på det i arkivet, det är ett lack jag återvänder till ibland, och det är helt klart värt att visas upp!

    1. Det här är en riktig golden oldie! Det är svårt att tröttna på så här vackra och neutrala lack!

  4. Hi cupcake, I love Essie Playa del Platinum on you and I very much like those greige shades for nailpolish!! Those are my preferred neutrals!!! Viele Küsschen and scratches for Smilla - I hope she is better!!!

    1. Hi pet and thanks! :D Greige can be really beautiful! Only the slightest difference in shade can make it a fail or a win! ;)
      Smilla is a bit better thanks - due to the cortison she's now eating. Not really back to her old self though... Viele Küsshen and thank you so much for caring! xxx
