Variations on Grey

This mani was the result of me just playing around with black, silver, and grey. I wanted to re-test my black holo base…which of course is actually a grey. That is always disappointing!

I ended up adding a silvery white stamp, and then covering around half the nail with grey matte polish. In the end I decided I was going for some type of fancy clothing (a vest over a shirt? I don’t know)…and then I added dots. Because when in doubt I always add dots. Sometimes it helps!

The design was mirrored over my hands, which is to say one had the V-shape starting at the cuticles and the other had it starting at my free edge. I am biased in which I liked better, mostly because I really like square-shaped nails, not rounded ones!

Some day, some polish maker will come up with a black holo that is both wonderfully holographic AND is not grey. To be fair, I have no idea how that would be achieved, but a girl can dream!

Hope you enjoyed! On a personal update: I can bend my elbow again! So editing for the rest of this week should be alright 🙂

  1. Great news about your elbow! I hope it isn’t too painful anymore by now.

    This is so pretty! It’s elegant and edgy at the same time.
    I think I like the one with the triangle pointing towards the tip of your nails.
    It really does look like a vest with white buttons over a fancy glittery top 🙂
    *keeps staring at both versions… doesn’t see any round nails?
