This is a really thick book by some guy and some other guys. Highly praised as one of the most essential reference works for medicine studies, it's pretty much obligatory to own for any medical doctor. I keep it in my book shelf along with my biology and psychiatry books. Just in case.
However, this is a nail polish blog. So here's the real Gray's Anatomy! I got it from my dear friend Teresa.
This is four coats and it is still rather sheer. Also very streaky. But I don't mind, since it's supposed to be a pretty much dead on dupe for a Lippmann polish I've been wanting for quite some time. Look at the duochrome:
Waaay! The famous pink-green oil slick duochrome in a lightly tinted grey base.
I did try layering this one on top of a black creme, but it turned out so heinous that I'll spare you the trauma of witnessing it. Though, I feel that since I'm not entirely happy with the sheerness, I'll try it over a few other base colors as well. Maybe I'll post it some time.
Since this Wet n Wild polish is, from what I understand, part of a collection where all names allude on popular tv series, I assume the people naming them thought they did the clever play on Grey's Anatomy - which is of course originally a name play on the book pictured on top of this post. So I guess the circle is now closed. Though I really do wonder if the cosmetics people are aware.
Swedish word of the day:
facklitteratur -noun technical literature
We all need it from time to time.
