Nailed It- Grey Skies

I usually choose my nail polish colour based on three factors:

1)how I feel
2)what I haven't worn in a while
3)what I've seen on someone else and thought 'hey, that colour looks good, I have a similar one, why the hell don't I wear it?!'

So, I felt like it was time that I went back to an old favourite nail polish of mine... No7's Grey Skies from Boots. You can also get it here. This colour is a true dark grey with like a dirty green undertone. Its really nice and I think it will compliment any skin colour.

No7 do different types of nail polishes; they have their 'Stay Perfect' range, 'Speed Dry' range and 'Colour Miracle'.

Grey Skies is part of the 'Speed Dry' collection and the polishes from this range do dry quickly and are easy to work with.

 I really love No7 nail polish's because they are cheap (when used with the £5 off vouchers), the colours are amazing and a majority of the colours are really pigmented and glossy, so in  some cases one coat can be worn, but I just slap the other one on :)
Also, with these nail polishes, I find that they don't chip that easily and I don't really need a top coat.

If you want to look into buying some No7 colours, I would definitely check out: (all are with one coat)...

  • Left to Right- 'Queenie', 'Siren', 'Beanie' and 'Violetta' (all from the 'Speed Dry' collection)

  • Left to Right- 'Miracle Chocolate' and 'Miracle Plum' ('Colour Miracle' collection)
With these colours, once you have applied them, you then apply a top coat which makes them change colour. I think it's really cool! So you kinda get two colours for the price of one ;)

After (with top coat applied)

  • Left to Right- 'Pillar Box' and 'Temptress' ('Stay Perfect' collection)

Unfortunately, 'Pillar Box' came out really orange on camera (even under about 4 different types of lights- sorry!) but its not all, its actually a bright red. However, I do find that with this range, my polishes stay put for a couple of days longer :)

No7 nail polishes are priced around £7-8 for 10ml.

What do you think of No7 polishes? What are your favourites?
