Looking for a grey nail polish

I'm looking for a grey cream nail polish that can stand on its own and also be good for nail art.

 

Would be a medium hue - not light nor dark.  Think of a fall sky about 10 minutes before a downpour.

@kimchikween - Here's a color I have from Sephora by OPI called Break a Leg Warmer.  It's showing as available for $4.50.

Check into some of these shades:

Essie Cashmere Bathroom (in their new Fall 2013 collection). The color is a medium to deep grey with a slight hidden shimmer (more visible in sunlight/close up). The photo was taken from The Polishaholic's blog and she states the opacity is real nice and the formula's consistency was good.

Also from Essie is Chinchilly, which a more purple/grey base. The first pic is from The Polishaholic and second is from I Love Polish.

 

From OPI there's Suzi Take The Wheel:

Along with French Quarter For Your Thoughts:

As you can see the first is a more neutral grey while the second is more of a blue toned/cooler grey. Photos also from The Polishaholic, who states the consistency/formula are great for both.

 

From Zoya is Dove (photo from The Polishaholic and also offers a comparison with Chinchilly):

I actually have this one - on my skin it looks more dark "khaki" or something..I love it for a neutral but not gray enough if that makes sense

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

 

absolutely!  I've tried some of the beige neutral tones and they all look either yellow or way too pink.  I love a darker grey or even silvery grey as a base for my nail art.  This is OPI You Don't Know Jacques.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy

 

Or Illamasqua DWS (which isn't available on Sephora for some reason)

 

 

Those seem like the closest matches to what you're looking for. Every other gray polish I can think of is either a light dove gray or very dark.

are those your nails?

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

Lancome Gris Angora -- one of my favorites! Lancome polishes don't get enough love.

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

I was SO tempted to buy nail polish when I was at the counter the other day...that is so pretty...dangit..maybe i'll get another GWP out of it. swfupload_4624139812867927318.gif

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

argh I wish you hadn't said "Lancome" and "GWP" in the same sentence!!! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

I just had to! :smileywink:

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

Just a heads up, Nordstrom is having a Lancome GWP first (I think?) week of September! :smileyhappy:

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

Anyone know what it will be? I was just considering making a purchase at Macy's with a Lancome GWP, but if there's possibly a better one on the way... :smileyhappy:

If I remember correctly, the Nordies one is not as good as the current Macy's one :smileyhappy:

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

I wonder if it's the same stuff as Macy's...There's a website I use that lists all the current beauty GWP...will have to keep an eye out!

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish

I bought Sephora by OPI nail polish in "Metro Chic"swfupload_7038844424176538835.jpg

You can layer it depending on how light or dark you want it to be and it's great for nail art. You might want to give that a try! 

Re: Looking for a grey nail polish
