Sterling is a light grey works well for any silvery, steely look. To achieve this pastel silver, your hair needs to be platinum at a level 11+. Pre-lightening is a must with this shade! Since toner deposits colour, refrain from using it to achieve level 11 blonde; if you do tone level 10 hair and then add Sterling, it can create unwanted pigment interactions or inconsistent colour. Any yellow tones in blonde hair can interact with the blue/silvery base in Sterling to cause an unpredictable result
If your hair is very light cool blonde but not quite platinum, try mixing Sterling with a little bit of a warmer tone like Girl’s Night to help cover blonde undertones more effectively. Or, you can mix a bit into Poseidon, Purple AF or a few other shades to give that colour a smoky hue

This is my go to silver dye. It smells great, is really conditioning, and lasts 2-3 times longer than other silver/grey days (bar Pravana silver), and doesn't have that deep blue gunmetal tone other silvers can start out with.
It does not turn your hair green if you know what you're doing, Rosie. Silvers are typically blue-based dyes so when you put it on blonde hair that is too yellow, you get green. Tone your hair properly before using a silver dye!
This also works great as a base for a custom grey. I usually do 40% Arctic Fox Sterling, 25% Pravana silver, 25% Adore platinum, and then 10% of whatever grey I have lying around from trying out.
slightly blue tinge
Sadly not that great, has a very green hue to it. Don’t use this colour unless you are 100% white blonde and don’t mind it be green and purple in places 🤷🏻♀️
