Sally Hansen Gray by Gray - swatches and review

I really like grey polishes because grey is just not always just grey ;) even though you might think so. This is a gorgeous grey polish which, depending on the lighting, can look grey, grey-blue or grey-green. It's also a one coater and the formula is out of this world!! :D Enjoy getting to know Gray by Gray! :)


Type of polish: Cream.

Colour: A medium gray with hints both to blue and green depending on the lighting.

Opacity: Excellent! This is ONE COAT! :D

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Excellent! Perfect texture, like melted butter and it stays where you want it to.

Brush: Very good! Thick, firm and easy to work with! The bottle has a longer neck to which felt very comfortable to work with and on the cork it has a rubber band so it's very easy to open and close :D

Shine: Shiny on its own. No top coat in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: Accurate. What you see is what you get ;)

Grade: 5/5 :D

I love everything about this polish! The colour, the formula, the brush, the bottle, the name!! :D The only thing I don't like is that I bought it for my friend Goldie and not for me... ;) Maybe I'll get one for myself too :P After all, it's on sale for half price right now... ;)

Do you like grey polishes or do you just find them dull?
How did you like Grey by Grey?


  1. Ciao Jezz, it Sounds and looks like a great polish! Your swatch is great as usual. I love grey shades, just not on me :P

    1. Ciao Nati e grazie mille!! :D
      Are you sure don't look good in grey shades...??
      Can't you do a grey post some day???
      Pleeeeeaaaaseee.... :)
      Baci cara!

  2. Grått är faktiskt en ganska trevlig färg. Speciellt eftersom den som du säger inte bara behöver vara grå, utan kanske drar åt någon färg. :)

    1. Jag gillar att grått passar till allt!
      Och att det är en bra grund till nail art.

  3. Åh min nya älskning! <3 Jag har gått å klämt på den där i flera år ju men den som väntar på något gott... :D Tack snälla för att dy köpte den åt oss ;)dy vet ju att dy får låna Sally whenever you please :) xoxo

  4. Whoa - an awesome polish!!!!! Reminds me of Zoya Evvie - that one has not the awesome one coater formula though ;-)!!!! Beautiful on you!!!

    1. I had too google Evvie and WOW!!! I need Zoya Evvie now!! :D They are alike but not dupes I think.
      Do you own Evvie?
      And thanks! :D I loved wearing this polish! I even pimped it and wore some more after this ;) I'll show you in the future! ;)
