Swatch & Review: Love & Beauty Goat Gris

Hi doves!

Today, I've got a swatch of a polish I've had for a while, but haven't really paid attention to. I got it at Forever 21 for a dollar when I was in Singapore last. It's a pretty taupe polish that has GREAT coverage in 2 coats. Honestly, I'm super impressed with this polish - the formula isn't too thin or too thick, dries well and is nicely pigmented. I've been feeling pretty self-conscious of my short nails, so I might stick with neutral colors for a bit.

I think I may have actually fallen in love with this color - it's unique in my collection, and I can't get over how good it looks on my hands. I find it looks a smidgen cooler in my photos than in person. Another exciting point I have to bring up is that I tried a new top coat today! I tried Essie's Good to Go, and let me tell you, that shit is amazing. It dried SO quickly and left such an amazing shine - my nails have NEVER been this shiny before. It's amazing. I'm in love. It was suggested to me by Anneke from Pinpoint Polish, and I'm so glad I took her advice.

What do you lovelies think of taupe polishes? What is your ultimate, go-to topcoat?
