Another day, another nail polish post.  Today I'm sharing the love for some of my favourite grey (ish) shades, which I tend to reach for during the week when I've got to keep things subtle for work.  

The cutest bottle award goes to Ciate: I would be lying if I said the little bow had nothing to do with why I bought this! But apart from looking good on my dressing table the colour, Cream Soda, is a really nice pale grey that applies easily and stays chip free for a good few days.  

Next up is a new favourite, Barry M Speedy Quick Dry polish in Eat My Dust, which is a much more blue toned grey and is the perfect shade for spring.  It does dry quickly like it says, but I'd probably like it even more if it was a matte shade - I'm not really sure why though! 

An actual matte polish that has made it's way here is another one by Barry M in the shade Vanilla, which isn't strictly grey but it must be pretty close to it in the colour spectrum so I threw it in anyway!  I love this as it works really well as a matte shade, and the colour is subtle yet smart and instantly makes your nails look much neater.

Last up is a shimmery silver grey by Seventeen, in the shade Moonstruck which came as part of a larger gift set - but I'm sure it is sold separately too.  This polish is my pick for going grey but with some extra sparkle, it has that futuristic look and is ideal for wearing on a night out or even to create some nail art or shimmery tips.  

So there are my picks for some grey (and ok maybe some not so grey) shades to see you through this spring!  What are your favourite shades?  Have you tried any of these? xx



  1. These all look stunning; but i'm especially fond of the Barry M shades. I think I'll have to check them out for myself!

  3. Barry M Vanilla sounds lovely :) I really like the Speedy Quick Dry Range but I don't have Eat My Dust...yet! Love your choices, these shades are great for Spring xx
