Oh Demure Vixen, you shot straight into my top 20! A taupe/mauve creme with hidden pink shimmer, this little nymphet is by far my favourite Essie lacquer. It's a universally appropriate colour for any occasion without being in the slightest boring.
It could be that the top coat I used (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri) affected the colour - I did this mani with Demure Vixen last night, and this morning as I checked my nails I noticed that the colour had changed from taupe to very saturated mauve and my nails don't match the colour of the bottle anymore... hmm. The pictures taken with flash accentuate the taupe, but the upmost image is probably the most accurate representation of how this polish looks on me. o.O
