|Three (3) coats of Wet n Wild Gray’s Anatomy, No Top coat|
Gray’s Anatomy #237C, is a silvery gray with light purple and green pearly undertones. Depending on the lighting and angle, Grey’s anatomy can appear as a silvery light purple or a silvery green. I notice in lower light, the purple is very prominent and when I bring my fingers in the sunlight, the green shows much more. It’s slightly holographic, and reminiscent of the colors you may find inside a seashell.
As for the polish itself, because it’s a pearl, you have to be careful when applying it, because it shows all of your brush strokes once the polish is dry. A base coat may be a good idea for a smooth application. The polish is incredibly sheer, and to build the color to it’s full opacity, you’d need three coats minimum. This polish claims to be dry in 60 seconds, but I think it takes a bit longer than that. After a couple of minutes, I tested it out and touched my nail and was able to make a fingerprint. So, I wouldn’t compare this at all to OPI. I applied three coats, and although the color wasn’t completely opaque, it was alright. I don’t think I waited long enough between coats, otherwise the outcome may of been better. The finish is quite dull, so a top coat is very necessary.
I personally, didn’t care for the color at all. I’m usually only go for creme formula polishes, and skip out on any frost or pearl finish polishes. But, I thought I’d try something new, that looked a bit interesting. In the end, I should of stuck with my instincts. I ended up removing this polish from my nails after I took the photo. It just reminded me of something I would of worn with a mood ring when I was in 5th grade. haha! Don’t let my opinion effect yours though, this shade is actually very popular and many love it! It’s actually a cheaper dupe for OPI “Not like the Movies” nail polish from the Katy Perry collection.
(Sorry my blog has been turning into a nail blog lately, lol)
What do you think of this color???
