Grace-Full Nail Polish is pretty damned amazing when it comes to neutrals. This brand has some of my very favorite soft, feminine holos ever. So when I saw that these were all neutrals...I almost died. Ok, not literally...but there was some childish hand-clapping. Scroll on, and you'll see why.
(promotional samples ahead)
Deep Rose Blush
This is a cool medium pink holo with a soft gold underflash. I feel like this is the soft pink for grown folks. If you love delicate pinks, but you don't want to feel like a baby shower favor, this is definitely worth considering. The formula is amazing and I barely needed two coats, plus Seche Vite, for these pictures.
Was Deep Rose Blush a little too much color for you? Then this pale, cool pink holo is for you. On my fair/cool skin, this is almost a rosy nude...and we know how much I love a good nude. This would be a great choice for a vacation color, since you wouldn't notice if it started to chip.
Ok, now we're getting to the fun stuff. I love a good taupe, and this is a brilliant one. It is a blushed sandy taupe holo with a subtle pink underbelly. Sigh. This speaks to my heart. I love colors like these because they are always appropriate and generally flattering on everyone. A good, solid, equal-opportunity nude. The formula seemed a wee bit more sheer than the rest, and I used three very thin coats here plus a layer of Seche Vite.
This is a warm, hot-cocoa brown holo with a rosy underflash. I love this on my skin, but I need to see it on someone deeper. I bet this would look gloriously neutral. I think this one might fall into the "universally flattering" category as well. The formula on this was amazingly smooth, and I used two coats plus a layer of Seche Vite for these pictures.
This is a saturated, warm purple with a strong linear holo. I love fuchsia, and this is definitely moving towards that end of the spectrum. There is something soft about this shade, but still a tiny bit bold. Maybe "baby bold". It is still completely SFW though. The formula is just as stunning, and I used two thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
This is a pale purple holo with a rosy underbelly and a subtle gold simmer. This is the color that I love in lipstick...until I put it on and it brings out all the weird yellow in my face. Thank the gods for nail polish, amirite? The formula is grand, and I only needed two thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
♫I saved the beeest for laaaaast♫. Ok, not really, but dammit I adore gray and this is a great one. It is a wonderful pavement gray holo with a pronounced pink flash. I swear I see a subtle shift in here to that dances from gold to green. I honestly could wear this color for weeks. The formula is blessedly easy, and I used two thin coats plus a layer of Seche Vite here.
These shades are all so neutral and soft. They are definitely the workhorses of any polish wardrobe. If you have a job that
crushes your creative soul requires you to look professional, then you might as well grab them all. You really can't go wrong.
These are all still available on the Grace-Full website. Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
