It's going to be a grey spring..

Very grey (gray? I never know which one is correct). Not in terms of weather or specific dreariness, but in polish colors.

I had some errands to run, so I of course made a bit of a side trip to Nordstrom's. I was really wanting Chanel's Black Pearl polish. At first I didn't, but I kept seeing blog posts and was eventually convinced I needed it. When I was going through my stash last night, I realized I had a dark grey polish that had a duochrome green and purple shimmer in it, and I wondered if it was close to Black Pearl. So I painted one nail and headed out to the store.

Right off I noticed that the color that I had in my stash (Borghese Stellare Notte, by the way) was not at all like Black Pearl. I also noticed that the spring lines were filled with grey nail polishes. Dior is releasing Gris Montaigne for Spring 2011 and Estee Lauder is releasing Wild Storm.  Gris Montaigne is a plain grey creme with the same great brush and fantastic formula. Wild Storm is a shimmery grey, also with a very nice formula. Unfortunately, neither one struck my fancy.

I'm very happy I bought Black Pearl, though.


  1. I really like the more I look at it. My camera skills can't even touch how nice the color is.
