NOTD: Misty Grey by Models Own

Last night, after my Christmas Eve bath, I painted my nails with Misty Grey by Models Own.  This is one of my most worn nail polishes of 2010 and I’m sure it will continue to be worn often in 2011.  The colour is simply a creamy light grey that is described perfectly by the name ‘Misty Grey’.  Grey is the perfect autumn/winter colour and if you’re worried about wearing grey, like I was to begin with, then this is a great colour to go for to start you off.  Its quite a girlie way to wear grey too.  The photos above are two coats of Misty Grey, pre clean up and top coat and show the true to life shade of this polish.  It looks exactly the same on the nails in real life as it does in the photos and in the bottle.

The polish is thick but smooth in consistency and very opaque and is one of Models Own’s shades that really could be left at two coats.  I find that two is best though, just to make sure that the application is completely even… nobody likes leaving the house, getting half way to the place you’re going and realising you’ve missed some edges of your nail polish!  Like the majority of Models Own polishes, Misty Grey is fast drying and, if used with a top coat, remains chip free for days!

As always, you can buy Models Own polishes online here for £5 a piece, or if you want to shop on the high street then I would recommend Boots as they have Models Own stands and therefore the best selection of their polishes and makeup.

Have you tried Misty Grey?

Can you recommend any other grey polishes? I would really like to try some other shades.
