Linda Johansen ~ Warm Grey


Linda Johansen ~ Warm Grey
Warm grey crème – or dark beige

When I started applying this baby it was obvious to me that this is definitely a quality polish. One of those polishes that are easy to apply, and that cover well without any hassle.

“Warm Grey” is a one coater! I was amazed. I thought I was going to apply coat after coat to make it opaque, but that was certainly not the case here. I applied two coats for the camera, but believe me, one coat would have done! One coat of Catrice Quick Dry & High Shine top coat, and here’s what that looks like:




The polish has a really nice shine to it, and depth:



I think that it shows on the pictures that this polish is of really good quality, and a class product.



Here’s what Linda Johansen wrote about this particular polish:
A timeless warm grey color that's a little bit more "edgy" than the classic Mannequin. Chic and elegant for those who want a discreet look and dare a little more. Not shimmer and a neutral undertone.


I don’t think I’ll go as far as to call this polish “edgy”, but that’s probably just me :) I’ll show you what else this classy polish can do: Stamp!



I removed the grey from my ring finger and my thumb and applied one coat of Miss Sporty #313 – a lovely rich shimmery purple. 

Then I stamped using the opposite colours – I used a design from Mash’s stamping plate Mash-30. I sealed it all up with one coat of Poshé top coat, and behold – Warm Grey works as a great stamping polish:




Here’s one last shot of it, just to show you the Miss Sporty polish as well!




I am quite pleased to enrol this polish in my stash, knowing that it’s great both as a base colour and as a stamping polish. I appreciate quality when I have it, and it was a revelation how well this took to both stamping and being stamped on. So yes – this ended up as a winner in my book! I told you it ended well! :)

  3. I like this color a lot. I think the name is very accurate. And the fact that it covers in only one layer, that is great!
