NOTD: Nubar 'Barricade' Nail Lacquer

So the lovely people at Nubar often keep me up to date with their recent releases and asked whether I would be interested in trying a shade from their recent collection, 'Fortress' which is a collection inspired by the latest grey shades that were very present on all the catwalks this season. As I love trying out Catwalk trends I thought this would be a really fun collection to try.

And I have to be honest, when I heard they were releasing a grey collection, I did think it was really odd and was expecting not to like it...but then I realised that grey can come in so many different shades and it doesn't always have to mean dull! I was sent the shade 'Barricade' which is a concrete grey creme. I was convinced before I applied it that it would be one of those colours that I probably wouldn't end up liking BUT once it settled on my nails I actually REALLY liked it...and now it's dry I absolutely LOVE it! The reason I think I love it so much is because to me it's dried as a greeny-grey and it's anything but dull. It just looks really pretty and understated, oh and of course it's really nice to apply too. Everyone has been commenting on my nails since I've worn it so it does seem a bit of a winner, and I wasn't expecting such a response from a grey nail polish!

So this has been a really new beauty experience for me! I never would have thought to wear grey nail polish a few weeks ago but now here I am finding that I actually do really like it. Just goes to show that you never know until you try things :). So are you a fan of grey nails? Or have you never tried it before? To check out this collection definitely go to http://www.beautyshed.co.uk/, it's going to be perfect for those who want an alternative to the usual pastel spring shades!
