Hullo again. And I’m back for Manicure No 6 of 15 which is favourite colour.
Now I have a general favourite colour. You know, the colour that you buy pens in, the colour that you’ll select a toothbrush in, your hole punch, your post it notes. And for me that is purple. I love purple. And I own quite a few purple nail polishes.
However, when it comes to nail polish purple is not, as it turns out, my favourite colour. I like it on my nails. Enjoy it even. But for whatever reason, it is grey polish that I seem to enjoy wearing the most. Greys of all hues, from the silvers through to the charcoals. And I love a simple grey creme too. Dunno why, just something about the colour that seems to suit my pale pinky white freckled skin. So in homage to my love of grey polish, I’ve tried to do a mani using a number of greys.
Unfortunately when I was rubbing some cuticle oil into my fingers I’ve somehow managed to twist the polish on my ring finger. Those lines were straight I swear:(. I should have done it again but I was running out of time. Plus ‘warts and all’ remember. So here we are.
First we have a further attempt at a marble manicure using China Glaze Recycle, Chemistry (Ozotic) 509, China Glaze Pelican Grey over undies of China Glaze White on White. I was actually pretty surprised that I wanted to try marbling again quite so soon. It worked ok expect I should have used grey undies as I taped too close to my cuticles and lost some edging of the mani when I was removing the tape. Next is Contrary Polish Purple Smoke with two coats of The Hungry Asian Mumbling which is the loveliest mix of silver glitter. My ring finger is Purple Smoke on the base with stripes of The Hungry Asian Zera Grey over the top. Finally on my little finger is Manglaze Fuggen Ugly with a tip of Layla Flash Black.
Again sorry for muffing up the stripped mani. It looked good before I managed to bugger it up. But even so I was quite happy with my efforts having never tried such a mixture of techniques before.
So there you go, my efforts at showcasing my favourite polish colour, grey:).
