Wheels Q5 and G6: Neutral Cremes from Black to Grey to White

Both of the wheels I have to share on this Nail Wheel Wednesday are listed as "neutral grey creme" on my nail wheel spreadsheet, but some taupes and blue greys seem to have snuck onto them, too. Well, the last three taupes on G6 didn't sneak in; I just wanted to fill up the wheel and had (temporarily) run out of greys. (I didn't always have a spreadsheet for my nail wheels but after a while it seemed like a good idea to have a record of what what on which wheel and when I posted it.)

  1. Grey has to be one of the best polish colors! I love it!

  2. I know about that temporarily running out of - rarely lasts long tho ;)
    I'm not a grey fan as such, but I do like a good pale and a dark grey!!

  3. I have a good variety of grays but find I reach for the same one or two bottles. But who would have thought there's this much variety in gray. (I just noticed, I type gray and you type grey...!)

  4. love grey polishes, all of them, so no favorite here for me :D

  5. I'm in love with these shades. You have a beautiful collection of these! :D
