Item details


Swaying Grayly – Matte light grey polish packed with silver flakes and glass fleck, best at 3 coats, no top coat for matte effect, or with topcoat for a more metallic silver look

Designed with Adrienne Nguyen

Inspired by Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Land and the persistent description of Ursula Monkton in her true form as Skarthach of the Keep as represented by tattered grey canvas.

“It was my old bedroom, but it wasn’t. Not anymore. There was the little yellow handbasin, just my size, and the walls were still robin’s-egg blue, as they had been when it was mine. But now strips of cloth hung from the ceiling, gray, ragged cloth strips, like bandages, some only a foot long, others dangling almost all the way to the floor. The window was open and the wind rustled and pushed them, so they swayed, grayly, and it seemed as if perhaps the room was moving, like a tent or a ship at sea."
