NOTD: Carolyn K Helga

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 30 - 2013

I like grey nail polish. It’s edgy enough for old people to look at your nails like you must be satan’s lovechild but not so edgy that it makes your boss search for valid reasons to move your desk into a cupboard.

Carolyn-K-Helga

CarolynK’s Helga is a neutral, concrete grey creme with no discernible jazz about it.  A straight-forward what-you-see-is-what-you-get shade that applies smoothly in a couple of coats.  It’s part of the Carolyn K London Neutrals Nail Paint Set which offers a trio of work-appropriate shades.

The set is reasonably priced at £12.99 and available to buy online from www.powderrooms.com

    • Sorry Branny, no offense was intended. My Nan used to raise her eyebrows to the heavens when I wore anything other than red or pink on my nails.

      Really?! I’m sure its tongue in cheek.
      Never mind nans, my mum raises an eyebrow at some of my ‘different’ colours!
