Fifty shades of Grey… or almost!

Can we agree on the fact that 2015 is going to be the year of this novel? Between the movie coming in our theaters right on time for Valentine’s day and OPI exclusive collection (which is breathtaking btw…). And this article has no link whatsoever with it 8D just a lot of grey !

My base ended up disappearing under my nail-art but I used the very pretty grey polish with pink and blue glitter from KBShimmer Turbulence, which dries almost mat in fact. Discrete and quite elegant, it however requires 3 to 4 thin coats for perfect opacity. And to switch a bit techniques, I took out my tape and started to cut little stripes (still no stripping tape…) to make grey zones using n° 77 from Etude House, a rather blue smoked grey, the dark green-leaning one Mind your Mittens from Essie and finally the old version of A England Excalibur, the so pretty silver.

It’s quite different from what I usually do, rather graphic and in the end I find it classy in these colors. I urgently need stripping tape as I found back my love in tape manis!

See you soon for new polished adventures!
