I have been on the hunt for the perfect grey nail polish for absolutely ages. I tend to steer towards the more basic colours when it comes to most things and when beige is too plain and black is too dreary, I find grey to be a perfect medium. As Essie is one of my favourite polish brands because the formula is pretty dang amazing, I picked up a choice that was described as a pale grey shade.
Essie's Cocktail Bling is a stunning colour where the bottle looks grey, the swatch looks grey, but once applied to the fingers it definitely has a blue undertone. It's a very beautiful pale colour however it just isn't my grey. The colour is divine and since I'm usually wearing some tone of blue polish this shade truly fit right into my collection. It only takes about two coats to create an even tone and stays on for absolutely ages - as most Essie polishes do. Cocktail Bling is a great addition to any nail polish collection and it's definitely not a dud. But I have to ask, does anyone know of a grey grey? I have been racking the shops to find a pale grey polish tone and have simply come up short every time. I thought I'd ask ya'll and see if you could help me find my perfect shade of grey.
