Today’s nails are definitely matching the weather in Halifax–completely greyscale. Cloudy skies, rainy, & lacking any colour what-so-ever.
I thought after all that pink & red for Valentine’s, a palate cleanser manicure was in order. Pink is nice, but I don’t think I’m used to wearing so much of it on my nails. I’ve also been doing house planning (figuring out room paint colours & putting together some prints for our walls) & completely obsessed with everything grey. So naturally that means it will end up on my nails eventually!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Quo by Orly Breathable Kiss Me, I’m Kind
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- Matte Top Coat: Butter London Matte Finish
- OPI My Pointe Exactly
- Essie Cashmere Bathrobe
- Xroma Polish & Vinyls Ring Vinyls
- Edge Perfection Cuticle Barrier
- Latex Free Make Up Sponge
I love colourful manicures, don’t get me wrong! & I really enjoyed wearing all that pink for Valentine’s Day. But sometimes I just want to wear something a little more monochromatic & simple on my nails. Plus any time I get to wear Essie Cashmere Bathrobe–which is my ALL TIME favourite grey–is a good day & matte top coat just makes it look even better. To me, this design is just absolutely perfection.
I feel like with all the stamping I’ve been doing, I’ve been neglecting my nail vinyls a bit! I’ve been organizing my nail room though, so hopefully I will be starting to use them more often. But not next week… next week I have a special theme planned for all my manicures, but you’ll have to stay tuned to see what it is!
