With the weather taking a decided turn for the worst, dark nails have become something of a go-to for me. They feel chicer than bright colours, plus they match so well with my winter clothes, which are mostly greys and black.
I’ve loved Nailberry polishes for a while now, but had only played with their neutrals and brighter offerings. When I saw Storm, I just had to try it! Described by Nailberry as a sheer blue-grey the formula was super easy to apply, and I loved that the colour was so build-able. The first coat gave a sheer wash of shimmering grey, and it took three coats to get it fully opaque.
At first glance, it looks like a rich charcoal grey, but when the light hits it, the shimmer in the formula completely fires up! The finish of the polish is a gorgeous jelly, but I applied a gel topcoat to gee it a high-shine finish. This meant that the shimmer seemed even more noticeable. I got a good 3 days of wear before a little chipping around the tips, which is an absolute lifetime for me!
The polish costs £13.50 and is available here.
