Nails of the Week: Grey Holiday Glitz

17 December 2013 No Comment Disclosure

I can’t believe that next week will be Christmas? Can you? Time is just flying by. With so little time left before the “big day” I still have lots of to-do’s to mark off of my list. This week’s nail look is inspired by a couple of new polishes that I picked up during the end of the year clearance event. Originally when I picked up this grey nail color under the florescent lights in the store the nail color I thought was a deep navy blue, but once I got it home and tried it on it looked more grey than blue. Coincidentally, the Gem Crush that I also picked up seems to match perfectly together.

Here are the colors I choose for this week’s nail look:

  • Sally Hansen Double Duty Strengthening Base & Top Coat
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color- 375 Gone Grey
  • Sally Hansen Gem Crush Nail Color: 08 Glitz Gal

I love to “bling out” different accent nails on each hand. For example on my left hand I will typically add a sparkle polish to my ring finger while on my right hand I might add the same sparkle polish to my thumb instead. To recreate the look seen above, I first applied two coats of the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color to all of my nails. I just love fast drying nail polishes, don’t you? I definitely prefer them over polishes that require me to wait a while before resuming normal activities. After the Grey base color was dried, I then applied 2 coats of Sally Hansen’s Gem Crush to my accent nails. Once everything was completely dried I sealed it all with the Sally Hansen Double Duty clear base and top coat.

This week’s nail look has completely surprised me from the color to the overall look but in a good way. The more I wear this look, the more I love it since grey is one of my favorite colors to wear. This look is definitely different from our last nails of the week look of white & gold for the holidays. Which one do you like better? The grey one or the white & gold?

What’s on your nails this week?
