NOTW Thursdays | Transitionals







It's that time of year again when no one really knows or expects what the weather's going to be like, but it's getting colder and all I can say is: AWW YISSSS. I'm not a fan of the summer, actually, I hate the summer - I despise it. Living in Canada made me hope for cold days and snow, instead I get 2 months of torture. It shouldn't be that bad, right? But for someone like me, it's horrible.

But anyways, with my nail polish experimentation going on lately, I’ve been really missing the simple, 1-polish nail. I was (as usual) in Dollarama browsing through their scarce beauty section praying for something, anything other than a crackle nail polish (I am so not a fan). God took mercy upon me and revealed the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish in the colour Greige Gardens (am I gonna get sued for not adding the TM? Take mercy).

Now, I know I'm making it sound as if this is some sort of miracle nail polish that will heal all your woes, but to be completely honest with you, I've never used this one before. I think my mind was in such crackle-fog that anything would've made me happy! But I can't complain, I do love this colour and think it's a great for the inbetween-season weirdness. The purple of it gives it that summertime vibe but the flat greyness says Bring on the fall!

What do you think? Have you tried this specific brand before?

PS. TWO POSTS IN ONE DAY!? I know, I know, but I felt like I owed it to you guys after my brief hiatus. Enjoy, 'cause it won't happen again.

  1. Love me that whackadoodle summer, ngl. I feel like we had like maybe 4 weeks hot weather in Toronto, with spring/fall weather thrown in-between. LIKE, THE LAST WEEKS OF AUGUST WAS BASICALLY THE TRADITIONAL HOT SUMMER

    BUT YEAH, love me some greige colours! The colour looks lovely on the nails!

    1. Girlfriend, I live for the cold! But I toootally agree, it's been so stupid. Hot, cold, hot, cold. Damn it I need some consistency!

  2. hey Ada! I've not tried this shade before but have another grey-ish purple color from the same line. I'm personally not the biggest fan of it as it's too grey to be a summer color, but not grey enough to use as a fall/winter color...I guess it's going to be a transition color then? but I really like the brushes for these polishes, they're great to use! x

  3. Do you know what? although this colour may not be everyone's cup of tea, I LOVE it. So suttle, smooth...but most of all...DIFFERENT. Everyone's walking around with almost the same colour nails nowadays, so it's nice to have something different that's not super duper dramatic!

    1. You know, I haven't been the biggest fan of Sally Hansen but I honestly feel like it's redeeming itself. This nail polish stayed on excellently! And thank you! Followed back c:
