Griege Is The Colour Of My Soul

Monday 16 January 2012

Hey Ladies,

I thought I'd do a NOTD for you today as I've had a few new nail polishes arrive on my desk & soaked off my Glitter Tips  so thought I'd give one of the shades a test run (I am going to be getting some more press on nails but I've had major banking issues which you'd know if you follow me on Twitter so postponed buying some for now!)

Essie Merino Cool
Of course I reached for the griege type of shade first, they really are my favourite shades of polishes, they go with every outfit, look classy & flattering to most skin tones. Essie Merino Cool was released as a part of their Fall 2010 collection & is a beautiful mix of brown, grey & purple and is more on the purple scale than other grieges around. What I love is it looks different in all different lights so it never gets boring, I can just stare at it for ages. You can still purchase the shade & it is such a classic I hope it will be around forever, I purchased mine from eBay.

I have a serious problem!
.... Told you they were my favourite shade of polish!


  1. I nearly did a post like this a while ago, I wanted to chose a greige shade and realised I had got out around 15 nearly identical polishes! But I chickened out of posting it. I love Merino Cool, I prefer the purpley greiges, China Glaze Below Deck is my favourite xx

  2. i love the picture... they all look very similar hehe, barry ms mushroom is quite nice and very similar to particulaire :D

  3. haha the picture with all the nail varnishes made me laugh :) I love that colour nail varnish too, so classic

  4. WOW! JUST WOW! Is it wrong that i can't actually tell much difference between the shades! HEHE

  5. Oh Nic how many polish do you own of that colour haha! xx
