Griege

As I've already mentioned, I'm a huge fan of the griege nail polish trend. Technically griege would be a mix of gray and beige, but if you've ever seen any of these colors you know somehow they're complex looking - in a good way, of course. 
Here are the ones I have:

Chanel Particuliere


OPI You Don't Know Jacques
Sephora by OPI Metro Chic

Essie Mink Muffs

Do you own any "griege" nail polish? Which ones?

You've probably noticed the blog looks a little (a lot) different. Layout is different, more room for pictures, I'm adding tags to all the posts, and a new header is in place. That's probably not permanent, more a place holder and an idea of what I want but it'll take some time to get something that's all mine. So bear with me - if you've overhauled your blog before you understand how I'm in over my head right now! Let me know what you think so far - more changes to come.

I don't own any yet, but would love to own chanel particuliere. Good luck with the overhaul!

I was going to mention the header but you beat me to it! I'm slowly changing up the look of my blog. It's junkie. Like my house. And, my van (but we vacuumed today!).

I like the Essie one. I don't wear Polish on my fingers, but I will be doing pedicures soon. That color might be too close to my skin color though. I dunno.

I have the YDKJ from OPI and really, really like it. Nothing else in the arsenal though!

Blog changes are fun... but such while you're making the decisions! Good luck

I don't own any greige shades but I do like the lighter shade of the Chanel one :) And love the new layout!

laura said...

I've been lusting for a greige! I'm sure I'll eventually just get Chanel, but that Metro Chic one looks intriguing. Is it matte? How does it compare to Particuliere?

Courtney Erin said...

I don't own any...yet. Seriously, all I want to do right now is place an online order to Sephora. And I love all the layout changes - the banner is really great!

I'm addicted to You Don't Know Jacques. That French collection is genius.

Nice layout btw! Looks great.

Yea for blog updates! Excited to see what else you have in store for us ;)

Jenny said...

Love the new look, I'm trying to figure out an overhaul for my blog too - all in good time! I adore You Don't Know Jacques - love it! I also love MAC's Light Affair - it's more of a grey than beige, but it kind of comes off as a warm light grey - here's my post http://spryonthewall.blogspot.com/2010/01/i-want-this-mac-nail-lacquer-light.html

I'm still digging the Essie color you have!!

Cylia said...

i don't own a 'griege' nailpolish:(

Kavery said...

I love the new header. Totally grabs the attention!

Jess said...

Love that Chanel color!!!!

Ashley said...

I love the new layout, it's looking great! And I own OPI Metro Chic, I just can't seem to find it anywhere - so annoying!

I really like the new layout, and the new font. It looks really good!

I have the OPI one, I always get a lot of compliments when I wear it. :)

I like griege in theory but tried Particuliere and just wasn't sure it suited my skin tone. Definitely try it out before buying!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Those are awesome, I'm heavily into black lately though so apparently that's the only color I'll paint my nails.

ha ha you know I do...the other day somebody stopped me to ask what color I had on...Chanel Le Particuliere of course!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

Oh, My Darling said...

Totally agreed on the awesomeness of greige!

A couple weeks ago I went on a search for OPI You Don't Know Jacques and failed!! I really wanna try it - love the word "greige" btw! Where did you pick yours up?
