The Hyphen Store's stall. It's a beautiful pale lilac, almost gray--and it does look more gray under the right lighting. I love how demure and subtle this color is, like a dainty lady who blushes ever so slightly with a compliment. It did take me three coats to achieve the opacity I wanted, though with shades like these one really needs to take a little more time and care in terms of application.
No nail polish post is complete without a swatch, yes? I apologize for the messy application!
From L-R: EH Milkyway Purple (day-long wear, already looking buffed), OPI Steady As She Rose, EH MP again, OPI Stranger Tides, and CG Pelican Grey (see the blue?)
I have no issues with longevity since I use a base (Elianto) and top coat (TFS). The sad thing is that of this batch, only the Etude House one is permanent and locally available. I got the OPI and CG ones from Hyphen (they still have some shades, wink wink!), and other online stores like Carefreeshopper also carry the brands. I'm happy about my investment, in any case, and these will keep me ready for work in the months to come.
