SMACKDOWN: Revlon Mischievous v Essie Chinchilly

Posted on: July 9, 2013

I have been asked so many times about these 2 polishes and if they are dupes of each other. I think you can tell right away that No, they are nothing alike!

Even from the bottles you can see they are not alike. Revlon Mischievous is more brown with purple undertones. Essie Chinchilly is more of a softer gray. These pictures are all with 2 coats, no base coat and no top coat.

Revlon Mischievous is on the left. It is more comparable to Sally Hansen Commander in Chic than it is to Essie Chinchilly . In my opinion, Chinchilly is a great polish that everyone should have in their collection. Especially for an Essie polish, Chinchilly has a great formula and easy to apply. The formula is not too thin or thick and hasn’t become clumpy as so many Essie will do. I like the soft gray color of Chinchilly .
Revlon’s Mischievous is also a color I like a lot, I must because I buy it over and over. Not Mischievous but similar colors like Commander in Chic, Essie Merino Cool, Sephora by OPI Metro Chic and on and on. Wet n Wild, Rimmel, L’Oreal and Cover Girl all have similar colors to Mischievous .
Revlon came in 4th on my list of top ten for Nail Polish by Brand comparison study I did last summer. If you remember I compared over 60 brands of polish using 5 items of criteria to put them in order. Essie did not make the list. I do not care for Essie polish because you stand a real chance of being Gumped with an Essie polish. By that I think you all know what I mean, the formula is all over the place, it’s like a “box of chocolates” you never know what you’re going to get. Luckily though with Chinchilly you get a great formula and a pretty polish. No Gumping there!
I don’t know if this is really a SMACKDOWN, maybe more of a comparison, but these 2 polishes are nothing alike. I hope this has answered your questions, if not let me know in the comments below. Also let me know if there are any others you think may be dupes of each other,if I can I will check them out for you.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

I so agree with you about chinchilly! It is the perfect grey. It is also the only Essie I own. I have given every other one away, and will not buy another. I hated working (fighting) with Figi.
I trust that you are feeling all of the prayers that are coming your way.


Thanks Katherine and yes I do! 🙂

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
