Amongst the thermals I bought from Rainbow Connection last week, was this grey one by Polish Me Silly, Grey Matter.
This is a grey polish, with white, black and pink matte glitter pieces. This is three thin coats, with topcoat.
Application on this was ok, but it was a bit watery and runny, and quite sheer. I was a bit disappointed with how little pink glitter came out onto my nails, as there's quite a lot in the bottle. The grey & pink combination was one of my very favourites in the 80s - I had several grey & pink outfits in my teens! I was hoping for a bit more pink on the nail with this.
This did dry well, and the brush is nice, so three coats was no trouble, it just took a while. There also seems to be some tiny black particles in there too, which made this look a bit gritty in places, which I wasn't too keen on. I've seen swatches of this online that look GORGEOUS, so this was a bit less exciting than I'd hoped.
The thermal effect on this has been almost invisible so far. It's a pale grey when warm, and darkens slightly when cold. But it's nowhere near as pronounced as the swatches I've seen online. I realise my nails are quite short though, so there is that. But even with hot and cold water, I can't get much colour changing effect to show.
In an attempt to improve the effect of this, I stamped over it using Barry M Pink Punch, and MoYou London Pro XL plate 14.
I think this is a huge improvement! I do love pink and grey as a combination, and I think the design is really pretty - cow parsley, or Queen Anne's Lace, or whatever it is. I'm still a bit... unconvinced about the whole thing though.
