French Quarter for Your Thoughts

French Quarter for Your Thoughts was released August 2011 as a part of OPI's 12 piece "Touring America" collection. French Quarter for Your Thoughts is a medium, pale grey, which dries completely opaque in just two coats. This polish has a creme finish, and would require a top coat to become shiny. I kind of like my greys and browns to have a more "dusty" feel, and rarely apply a top coat to these shades. I don't keep my colours on for that long before switching, so if I were to use a top coat, it would be mainly for the added shine, not to add to the longevity of the polish. This polish dried quickly, and I didn't have any problems with streaks.
I don't have any other shades like French Quarter for Your Thoughts. I Vant to be A-lone Star, from OPI's Texas Collection has similar tones, but has a bit more blue, and finishes to a more frosty finish. Another shade released in OPI's Touring America Collection was "Suzi Takes the Wheel", which is extremely similar to French Quarter for Your Thoughts. Suzi Takes the Wheel had more green undertones though. I preferred French Quarter for Your Thoughts in the bottle. I have yet to try Suzi Takes the Wheel, so I'm not sure how they compare when they are actually on the nail.

I really like this shade! I've had it in my drawer for about a month now, and I finally got around to trying it out. I find that the shades that I end up liking most are the ones that I took the longest to try out.

What do you think of this shade? What is your favourite shade of grey?
