How are you doing? Yesterday, I took time off to do some sleuthing on my own. Lately, a nude grey nail polish has driving me nuts, especially after I saw Angelina Jolie wearing it on the red carpet. Now, those who have followed my blog for a while know how close I live to Target (walking distance, y'all!) After a bit of picking, I found two eligible candidates: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Commander in Chic and Rimmel London Long Lasting Finish Pro in Steel Grey.
|(L-R): Commander in Chic and Steel Grey|
|Nail polishes with respective finger swatch. Commander in Chic on the left and Steel Grey on the right.|
I applied a coat of Commander in Chic and two coats of Steel Grey. And then, I realized these colors are identical! I did two coats of Commander in Chic and two coats of Steel Grey before and they look exactly the same. You can hardly see the difference.
|Even the brushes look similar, although the Sally Hansen one is more pointed|
However, judging of the result, I have to give it to Steel Grey from Rimmel. The shine is fierce! I find the application process a lot less messy, thanks to the tapered brush. Also, it is a lot quicker. A word of warning: this nail polish dries very quickly so make sure you work with it fast.

|Extra play: I applied Essie Matte about You on my pointing finger. And nope, that was no nail art on the ring finger, y'all! I added a layer of My Makeup Blog's logo :)|
Last but not least: while I bought the Rimmel London nail polish, I have high regards for the new Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure line. It reminds me a lot of OPI nail polishes back in the day because it goes very smooth. If I have more money to fling around at nail polishes, I would have bought Commander in Chic. The color is lovely and you can't beat that brush. Even I, the one with 2 left hands when it comes to painting my fingers, can work that brush without making a mess.
And now, a disclaimer for FTC et. al.: I bought this stuff with a coupon. It's a nice color, Angelina Jolie wore something like this and I bet other celebrities did, too. For more information regarding My Makeup Blog's disclosure policy, click here.
