Happy Youth day. Considering it is a public holiday here in SA and I am barely out of pi’s I thought I would drag out this post that has been sitting in the drafts folder for forever. I hope you’re having as great a long weekend as I am. 😉
You might have noticed that I didn’t title this post as ‘Comparison’. That is because this isn’t really a comparison. For the longest time I owned Sinful Colors – Ciel but it didn’t have a name on it so I wasn’t sure what it actually was. I tried to do some research and the closest I could get was Sinful Colors – Cool gray. I wasn’t entirely sure and every time I used it I mentioned that I wasn’t sure and if anyone could confirm it would be great but no one ever did so on I went. Then in December I spotted Cool gray and Ciel in store (with names this time) and I knew immediately that I was wrong all along. So this is mostly a post to clarify and show how different they really are. I must say, I really love them both too.
Sinful Colors – Cool Gray
A beautiful light grey creme. This is 2 coats with no topcoat and a stunning formula.
Sinful Colors – Ciel
I’ve seen this described as a light blue but I must admit, ** I don’t see it. This is almost like a greyed white or super light grey. It’s lovely though and applies like a dream. This is 2 coats with no topcoat.
I’m sure it is pretty obvious that they are quite different but let’s see them together anyway
I am now not sure how I could’ve thought Ciel was Cool gray, even for a moment, but at the time I couldn’t find anything closer to Ciel. I am just really happy to have both now. I will try to go back and change the posts where I referred to Ciel as Cool gray but I haven’t yet and it won’t be this week either.
What do you think of these two? I really like them and how versatile they are.
Thanks for reading,
Your nails are great, your nail polish is great, and your photos are great! very professional! How do you do it?! I like cool grey; it brings out your skin tone. I never would have thought I’d like grey nail polish!
Awww Jess. Thank you SO much. It really means so much to me. Don’t you think grey polishes are very underrated. They’re so gorgeous.
*I apologise for the late reply. I replied to a bunch of comments on my phone but they seemed to have gone missing 🙁 )
Cool Gray is gorgeous!

I think so too. I LOVE cool fray! Thank you! xx
I don’t see any blue in Ciel? Are we colour blind???? Lmao! But both are majorly different. I see no similarity except that they’re of the same family and agree with your description of Ciel. I always think of it as pastel grey lmao
YES!!!!!! I dunno. I guess if you put it with blues it might look like a very pale blue but otherwise, nope. Thanks V!
These will both make awesome bases for art.
