NOTD - Essie's Smokin Hot

I haven't done a NOTD recently because I haven't bought any new polishes and after my vacation I decided to give my nails a breather since I've been painting them nonstop for a while now.  But with this cold weather, I wanted to do a dark color and so I whooped out Essie's Smokin Hot.  I love this color!  It's a deep and dusty purple with hints of gray.  It's like the dark purple version of Chinchilly and Cocktail Bling.  It has that same grey undertone and is just super flattering for my skin tone.  I think I'll be wearing this one a lot this winter. 
Why is my pug looking so solemn in the background? 
In certain lighting it looks almost black.  It was super easy to put on and went on very smoothly.  I'm a bit out of practice though so my cuticles are a little messy but if I'd been more careful or had the time to clean it up afterwards it would look more polished.  This is with Essie's base and top coats and 2 coats of Smokin Hot in between.  I've read that this polish can be hard to find and that some people sell it on Ebay for crazy amounts, but I was able to find this easily at Ulta recently although I'm not sure if it's always available there.
