Grey cloud


Hi everyone! For this post a grey cloud mani to match with today's weather. On my accent nail I used China Glaze Recyle, a black creme and between those China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, which is what I'm wearing on the rest of my nails too. It's the best grey creme I've got. Just two smooth coats for an even, glossy finish. 
I don't wear greys on their own very often, usually I just need some color to go with it. You know, to brighten things up. However, I think today's mani is cute in all its greyness :) Do you wear greys a lot?

  1. Very pretty! I'm going to work on a gradient this weekend and I was thinking about using white to black - this gave me a good idea. :)

  34. YAY! I am really looking forward to the tutorial! I am following you on blogside, so hopefully I will see it really soon! Your blog also has totally inspired me to make my own, it's starting out slowly, because my skills are not up to par as yours, but hopefully one day, I can be as good as you! Thanks for all your beautiful nail designs.

  35. Beautiful! I use greys way too rarely. Should just decide "today I'm making a monochromatic look" - but always the colored bottles call out more when actually starting the manicure...

    Now I'll file this under inspiration so the thought won't slip my mind :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I absolutely LOVE this! I'm so inspired to try out the clouds for myself after seeing what you've done. Now I've seen this I want those exact colours for it too ;)

  43. People crack me up. I try to figure out the thought process.

    "Sure would be nice if she posted things in her personal blog that I want, instead of what she wants. How dare she! I better comment to let her know! That will show her!"
