NOTD: Greige Gardens by Sally Hansen

Today's Nail of the Day comes courtesy of Sally Hansen.  As you know, I'm no stranger to the Complete Salon Manicure range from the lovely Sally of the Hansens.  Greige Gardens and Nude Now (ooh that's an order!) are two new shades for Spring and I will say that I immediately fell in The Love with Greige Gardens.  


The photos don't do this polish justice and no matter now much I tried to get it to smile with it's eyes, the true colour didn't show up properly.  On camera it looks really proper dark stoney grey but in person, it has a beautiful purple tone to it, almost lilac in certain light.


Three coats does the job, leaving me with a sophisticated, work friendly (that doesn't really apply to me, just wait until they see what I have planned soon) manicure that is understated and just plain beautiful.  €8.95 is the damage for a bottle and thanks to the wide brush that really does make application a doddle, they're a great investment.  I know in the photos I've messed up a bit with the polish on the cuticles, but I didn't need to clean up afterwards, that's how brilliant the brush is.


When I wear shades like this, I can't help feeling like Laura aka Lollipop26 aka Buy Now Blog Later.  She started me on the whole neutral nail polish thing years ago with the release of Metro Chic from OPI.  I love her and will continue to channel her when I'm wearing Greige Gardens!

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is available from Tescos and selected pharmacies nationwide.
