MATTE GRAY NAILS

matte gray nails

Weeks ago I pinned an image of matte gray nails.  The gray was classic, but the matte finish was unconventional.  I was totally into it!  A short time later I came across Essie ‘Matte About You Finisher’.  It instantly transforms nail color {any shade} from high-gloss to matte in seconds.  Done!  Those nails were mine.  I already had Essie ‘Chincilly’, the perfect shade of gray.   I simply painted my nails with one base coat and two coats of gray.  Then painted one thin layer of the matte finisher and it magically erased the shine from the nail polish and I was left with matte gray nails.  Too fun.

nailed it: nude + gold

nailed it: nude + gold by juneheartsfashion

 I splurged for a manicure yesterday.  A picture from Pinterest was my inspirationHowever my nail beds proved to be very short[That is a really nice way of saying I have stubby fingers.The ombre glitter look just wasn’t working.  So, through collaboration with the manicurist we decided upon a nude color (OPI/Bubble Bath) and gold sparkle tips.  The Art Club nail brush was extremely fine. It seemed easy enough to paint a very thin line just on the tipsI am loving my spring inspired nude + gold manicure.  Hoping it lasts for more than a day.

PS.  It is near impossible to take a decent photo of your own nails.

I don’t often get manicures, but I think I am going for it the next time I splurge.  “Go for it”, you ask?   The glitter.  I am going to go for the glitter.  
It is something I can’t do myself [or at least not very easily] and it would be something totally out of my wheel house.  Since emerald is the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year- green is all the rage.  
The mint and gold seems light with a bit of fun.  What do you think?
Anyone ever played with nail glitter?
