NOTD: Boots 17 Spring Collection

I can’t believe I have only just discovered the wonders of pale grey nail polish. I love it! It manages to make my nails looks somewhere in between edgy and polished with a hint of the Spring/pastel thing in there too. I applied this colour on Sunday night for the first time and have since removed and re-done the same shade – I love it THAT much.

This colour is one of the four from the Boots 17 Spring Collection and of all the shades this is definitely the most ‘me’, I’m not really a pastels sort of girl when it comes to nails. Application wise, it wasn’t perfect – it takes at least two, possibly three coats to look decent and not streaky – but luckily it dries quickly (I painted my nails before leaving for work this morning and it wasn’t a disaster – they dried in about 10mins).

In the bottle this shade does have a bit of a subtle silver shimmer, but that does get lost once it’s applied. The pale grey doesn’t make my hands look dead or pink either, if anything I actually think this colour flatters my skin tone – I’m currently wearing it with a chunky turquoise ring that I think looks fab with the grey!

What do you think of pale grey polish? Any other shade suggestions I should check out?

    There’s a really nice one by RBL and Models Own Grey Day is lovely (though maybe a bit similar to this one!)

    They look really good on your nails. I’m a brights girl, but I do love the grey one from this collection too. Must persevere!
