Essie's Power Clutch

Over the weekend I tried out Essie's Power Clutch on my fingernails.  I really like this color.  It's like a dark greenish gray.  Very easy to apply.  Two coats with Essie base and top coats.
My lil pug approved.
Here's a photo with better lighting. While this isn't quite black or green, I still feel hesitant wearing it to the office.  I think if you work in less conservative offices it's a great color to wear to work, but I feel like my workplace is still too conservative for anything in the black/gray/blue/green range.  I feel like I'm pushing it with some of my other polishes.
I'd like to point out that there's no food in my pug's food bowl.  She's just licking the inside as a not so subtle hint that she wants a treat.  I don't know why I get so much amusement out of strategically placing my fingers from a distance.  Butt pat.
My failed attempt at bunny ears.  She was moving too fast - pacing around, anticipating a treat.  Notice, I have Power Clutch on my toes too.  I normally don't do matchy matchy with my fingernails and toenails, but I wanted to try on Power Clutch on my fingernails for the weekend.
And I caved and gave my pug a baby carrot.  I of course demanded that she dance for me a little bit before.  And yes in the background is a Trader Joe's bag with my random recycling which includes a box for tabasco sauce.  I seriously buy this stuff in bulk.  I think tabasco sauce goes well on everything.  Even the Costco size isn't big enough for my usage.
Sigh, the weekend's over and I had to switch to a more office appropriate shade.  I'm trying out Essie's Lady Like which I am not liking as much.  A poor man's Demure Vixen and not as flattering of a color on me.  I'll post pictures and write more on it later.  I definitely like Case Study and Glamour Purse better than Lady Like.  But, I always like to give a few days for a new polish so we'll see.
