Grey or greige nail polish

(19 Posts)

My beloved & Other Stories Boratio Greige has painted its last nail. Anyone recommend a good grey or greige nail polish for spring? Can be cheap as chips or £££! Generally I apply on Sunday night and reapply on a Weds night, so anything that lasts a few days without chipping is a bonus (I'm looking at you, bright yellow OPI).

Grey nails are my favourite. My top picks are:

Smith and Cult - Doe My Dear
Leighton Dennny - Message in a Bottle
Essie - Cocktail Bling
Chanel - Washed Denim

(The last two are possibly too blue/grey for you - the Chanel's a new one and really lovely.)

Dior 'Metropolis' or 'Junon' are both nice grey/greige shades IMO.

Just went out on my lunch break to buy some. Came back with a t-shirt and pencils and no nail polish....

Liz Earle has some lovely grey/greige colours and I find it lasts quite well. grey dawn or ebb tide would be good choices.

Essie Chinchilly is lovely -

UNF. That Chinchilly is gorgeous. DW is buying Ballet Slippers in bulk, so I'll get her to add that to the basket for me!

OPI Rubble is good. Quite a bit darker than the Chinchilly.

I like Zoya Dove, mid grey.

I love Essie Sand Tropez.

It's on the paler, yellower end.

Soigne has some beautiful greys and greiges, and they last a week on me. They aren't the cheapest but it's worth keeping an eye on the website as they have 50 per cent off sales two to three times a year.

I just bought Essie Cocktail Bling. It leans quite blue/lilac in some lights though so maybe not what you're looking for.

Essie polishes are good for not chipping.
