Rimmel had a polish similar to this years ago, but sadly I think it was discontinued? When I saw this in the drugstore I got excited as it looked eerily similar to my beloved Rimmel's duo-chrome grey with purple, pink, and green tones. Sadly this polish sucks. It's very sheer as I required 5 coats to obtain a decent opacity and after all that work it chipped in one day, even with a top coat. Another polish that has gone into the epic fail list.
I really like this as a layering color, for adding extra dimension to polishes. Gray's Anatomy is a sheer silvery gray with lilac, pink and green multi chrome. It takes quite a few layers to build it up on it's own, and the formula is quite runny and dries slowly. But as stated it looks amazing over other colors - namely greys, blues, silvers and purples. I have it on now over a pewter silver and it helped smooth out the finish and add some interest to the polish. This is a versatile polish to own and I would purchase it again.
Gorgeous color but goes on so streaky it takes me 3 to 4 coats just to get it opaque. Would not recommend!
I purchased this product for $1.99 at a Walgreens drugstore. I was attracted to it by its unique duo-chrome color. The polish appears to be a light-medium grey with purple, pink, and green microglitter tones. I initially used this color alone with a clear base/ topcoat, but I was dissatisfied because it was too sheer even with multiple coats. The next time I tried this polish with a white base and it looks great. The color appears grey to periwinkle depending on the lighting with pink and purple microglitter. I have received many compliments. The polish brush isn't the best but it gets the job done---for the price, you definitely get what you pay for and maybe a little bit more.
I love this! I've been looking for a duo-chrome color that's affordable for a while and I'm really glad Wet n Wild came out with this. It's hard to describe the color since it varies a lot, but I would say this is a pearly gray-purple-green polish. It does dry pretty quickly and it actually lasts a pretty long time too. It doesn't really chip off once it really dries and the color still retains the cool tri-chrome effect. The only downside is that the polish is a bit sheer and thin and takes a few coats to really get the color in the bottle. But I can't really complain, it was super cheap and I really like the color!
It's a beautiful color and I got the best of it by layering it over black NP. 1 layer black and 2-3 layers of Gray's Anatomy and I was satisfied. But I don't understand how they can call this FAST DRY cause it's NOT!
A big minus for the brush - it's just weird and quite difficult to work with.
Here in Finland this polish was 5$.
I love this color polish for my toes in the summer. Beautiful flashes of shimmery purple, green w/gray/silver. I agree w/the other reviewers, this polish is pretty thin and several coats are required----I don't like doing that many coats of any polish, so after Revlon base coat, I appy 1 coat of LA Colors Color Craze nail polish in # 558 (Gunmetal Gray) then apply 2 coats of Gray's Anatomy for a nice opaque coverage, top w/Revlon Fast Dry top coat. The LA Colors Gunmetal gray coat doesn't change the color of Gray's A. at all. Just gives it a nice base. I think any dark gray base would work.
Inside or in low light, my nails appear to be a dark gray. Outside, in sunlight, they flash back in forth between the purple/green/silver, kinda like a mermaid sheen, for lack of a better discription. I faux tan my feet very lightly and it makes the color stand out even more. 5 lippes because I love the color and it last for 2 weeks. Def. repurchase.
its okay. i do like the color but i feel like ive been lied to. the color when its on your nails is no where close to the color in the bottle. in the bottle it looks more grey/silvery/ green and the pink/purple barely shows. but when i started painting my nails were more pink/purple. the duochrome of this polish its that great since most of what i saw was purple on my nails. it was like the silvery part disappeared. it is a nice color though but i would prefer the color in the bottle on my nails. i like it because the color reminds me of this polish i had in middle school that i used to wear all the time but lost. i will repurchase mainly because i have history with this color.
A 3 for packaging. IT LIES ...
I was browsing the makeup section of my local Fred Meyer's yesterday and this nail polish caught my eye immediately. It was the last one left, super cheap, and I was fascinated by the colors in the bottle so I bought it in a flash. It's gray, purple, silver, green, and blue all at the same time. I read reviews of it when I got home and read that it was a bit thin and watery so when I applied it I layered it over a black polish. I used one coat of black, two coat's of Gray's Anatomy, and a top coat. Wow. My nails look GORGEOUS! They haven't chipped at all yet, and usually my polish is chipped within a few hours. I can't stop staring at my nails. I got tons of compliments on it and everyone wanted to know where I got the polish, and everyone was shocked that it was such a cheap brand!
I will definitely be repurchasing!
Beautiful, long-wearing, fast-drying *and you can always buy a nail polish fast dry spray if you don't want to even wait that long*. I love the color! I wanted something opalescent and this is just gorgeous. Unlike others, I have plenty of time to wait while I put on three or four coats of this by itself and let it dry. This polish without a topcoat lasts me a good four or five days without chipping. I would suggest wearing with a topcoat, however. You don't need a base coat, as this doesn't stain or dry out healthy nails. It removes easily too. I'd like to try this on top of other colors as others have suggested as well.
