This is a really nice dark taupe - great for the fall/winter season. The formula is a little on the watery side, but it applied well and was opaque in 2 coats.
I was afraid this will be runny and as some people said, need 3 coats. Not a chance!it's opaque in two coats, very nice formula - not too thick not runny either. Lovely!
On my monitor this polish has a green cast to it that is not there in real life. For me, that is a good thing, as greens can be tricky against my skintone. It is a nice taupe that leans toward brown and is a color that I will wear over and over again this winter. If you are wanting to check for dupes in your collection, it resembles Essie "Don't Sweater It", which I also have. Close but not close enough for me to consider it a dupe, especially given how frequently I wear these shades in winter. DSI is a fair bit darker IMO. Like all the OPI taupe shades I have tried lately, this one has a nice formulation. Goes on without streaking or thin spots.
