NOTD: Illamasqua DWS


This is two coats of ILLAMASQUA’s DWS. Cement Grey Creme.

I have an inexplicable obsession with gray nail polishes, but this is my favorite of them all as it is a very light gray, sky leaning shade, as opposed to having dark {i.e. brown} undertones. This is the only ILLAMASQUA color I own thus far, but the formula is incredible – it applies perfectly, giving you a gorgeous smooth, glossy finish. This, to me, is a perfect winter color; but it also works well year-round. If you don’t own a gray shade yet, I definitely have to recommend this one.

Accessories: IndulgentDesigns Sterling Silver Infinity Knot Ring (worn above-the-knuckle) via Etsy.

Interesting name for the color. It makes me think a little of a Sally Hansen manicure color Gray by Gray.

This looks like a really cool polish.

Sweet ring!

I love colors like this. They look so simple, but they still pack a punch. And I also like the new white background of your blog. Forgive me if I'm late on this.

Love that infinity ring! This sounds like a great winter shade, for sure. I don't think I've ever worn a gray polish.
