I’m not the type to spend an hour on my nails; I’d rather pay someone to do them for me if I want them to look amazing, plus there's a hand massage included. But my fascination with nail polishes starts when the weather starts cooling down. It may be because I have the option to stay inside and actually do my nails instead of going out and being a normal person.
It’s been about five months since I've worn nail polish, and as an ode to the gray and cloudy skies of winter, I have chosen to change that and wear as many shades of gray possible this season.
Gray is muted, but it definitely stands out. I've got two shades of gray on me right now. Essie's Master Plan and OPI's Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! (I took them from my old roommate! Hey, Mary Rose!)
Master Plan is a soft gray with barely-there hints of lavender and taupe. I hate when grays are too green! My last manicure was a gray that looked basically green, and I had to correct people and say, "No, this is gray! See?!"
Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! is a really dark gray. I guess you can say it has a tiny hint of green, but it's way subtle, right? I may be lying to myself.
I can never decide between a light or dark polish. Part of me wants to be subtle, and the other wants to stand out in a sea of everyday polishes. I’m always battling my inner beauty demons when I see so many polishes in front of me.
So instead of choosing one, I decided to use both! Because, why not?
I used Master Plan on my left hand and Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! on my right. Do I look like an indecisive idiot? I think not! I actually love the way it looks. My hands have different personalities, like the wife and the mistress.
Anyways, what are your favorite shades of gray? Aren’t you glad you’re not my roommate because I’ll steal all your nail polish?
