5 to Try - Grey Nail Polish

Marion Cotillard sporting grey nails at the 2013 Golden Globes

Grey nail polish is so hard to pull off. It needs just the right amount of warmth and creaminess otherwise it can give you corpse hands. These 5 nail polishes are perfect if you want to try the grey nail polish trend without looking like you're going to a Halloween party.



  1. Essie Chinchilly
  2. OPI Did you ear about Van Gogh
  3. Dior Gris Trianon
  4. Australis Kick The Bucket
  5. L'Oreal Soft Chinchilla*


Here's how L'Oreal Chinchilla looks on my nails. I'm wearing 3 coats and no top coat. I love how creamy it looks. It's neutral but with a twist. Definitely a work appropriate shade but also fashionable enough to wear to the bar.


What do you think of grey nail polish? Would you wear it?

  3. Ohhh I recently received a silvery-grayish one. I haven't used it yet. Any tips on what coloured tops it'll go with?

    1. Hi Lily, I think it would look great with blues and purples, also cool toned reds would work well with silvery-grey shades. :)

  5. I have Zoya Harley which is a lovely shimmery neutral grey, and Mode Cosmetics VIP, which is a cool grey creme. I am now imagining a gradient with the two... hmm!

  7. This is my absolute favourite shade! Love greys and nude brown shades, the are so wearable and like you said- suitable for the office yet also chic enough for going out. I really want a beautiful one from OPI (my favourite nail polish formulation) but I have this cheap $2 one which a great formula by Ulta3 called Earl Grey :)
