Review: MoYou Stamping Nail Polish - Grey Skies*

MoYou Stamping Nail Polish - Grey Skies


This special nail polish is a polish designed specially for stamping, although you can use it as a standard nail polish. MoYou describe the colour as "the perfect mix of mauve and grey, with a purple undertone" which is how I would also describe it. The colour on the swatch is colour accurate rather than the bottle shot.


The brush is flat and wide.

The bottle contains 12ml.

MoYou Black and White stamping polishes are my go to stamping polishes, they are opaque and show up well on any base colour. Grey Skies is also opaque and stamps over darker base polishes, which hopefully shows in my nail art below:

[MoYou Grey Skies + MoYou 105]

[MoYou Grey Skies + MoYou 123]

Overall this is a good stamping polish, opaque, stamps well, and is quite a unique shade for a stamping polish.


[I was sent this polish to review, this doesn't influence my opinion]

Review: DUX Lingerie - Shade 4 Brick


This liquid lipstick is a peach / nude shade which is matte in finish. I found this swatched on my hand a little darker than it ended up on my lips. This only needed one coat to achieve full opacity. It didn't need setting and once dried it didn't stick to itself or anything once dried. It is kiss proof and lasts for hours, eventually it does begin to crumble from the inside out. It has a mild scent in the tube of sweet, vanilla but on the lips the scent disappears.

Hand Swatch:

The applicator is a traditional doe foot one:

I really like the formula as it is not sticky at all.

Swatched on my lips;
