Greige.

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Hey lovelies,

I had a really weird dream this morning that I had blog comments of boy readers and I've just remembered it now. How odd eh and quite pointless for me to mention right now. Hope you're all well though and having a good day/evening :)

Greige (Grey + Beige) nail polish was all the rage last year, I remember thinking "urgh I am not keen on that", I was a lover of pastel and bright nail polishes and greige just wasn't up my street. Fast forward a few months, I actually quite like this trend and it's still going strong. I think it's quite a sophisticated colour and I remember when my boyfriend and I were flat hunting, I deliberately painted my nails with Model Own's Nude Beige so I would look more sophisticated and the landlord would maybe let us have the flat as I'd have nice nails. How mad is that, they probably didn't even notice my nails, but nevertheless we found a flat and rented it no problem.



From L-R- Concrete Mixer, Slate Grey and Nude Beige 

When I was wasting time the other day, I cleared and organised my nail polish storage and realised that I have a few greige colours from Models Own. In the bottle they do look similar but they actually all vary in their finished shade!

I have Concrete Mixer, Slate Grey and Nude Beige. After swatching them I think that my favourite is Slate Grey, it's the perfect greige in my opinion. All polishes are £5.00 and are on 3 for 2 at the moment in Boots- Bargain! Do you like the greige trend? What's your favourite greige polish?

Hope you have a lovely evening :)

  1. They look lurvely! My fave greige is Topshops' Mink, it's so pretty. I've reviewed it on my blog and it's always in my favourites. I dislike BarryM's mushroom; clashes with my hands xx

  6. I LOOOOOVE greige! Although I've been wanting something a bit brighter now that it's warmer, but the In Style magazine's Nails Inc in Fashion Fawn is a great greige :)

    I've yet to try Models Own - I'm often overwhelmed by all the colours, and they aren't accessible near me! Idk how many you have, but I still request the Barry M collection post and if you have loads of Models Own, one of that too! :P
