Another blog revival?! Unexpected saran wrap nail art favorite

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. Whoaaaaa, was February really the last time I posted something?! -_- Oops.

If you've still been coming by, thank you so much. If not, well, fresh starts are always good, right? I took a much needed break (but in no way did that mean that I stopped painting my nails; I just stopped doing nail art) and will be back... once this chip on my nail grows out.

In the meantime, here's a design I did quite a while back ago (ahem, last year):

I used the saran wrap method to achieve this look. I started out with the pink base then dabbed on the grey with a ball of saran wrap. The first two nails look alright but please direct your attention to my ring and little finger. Aren't the colors just magical together?!

I used China Glaze - Strawberry Fields as the base then dabbed on Maybelline - Impeccable Greys. The shimmer from Strawberry Fields gives it such an enchanting look... like a dusty pink galaxy. Or a nebula... I could start pulling up names from my astronomy class but that would bore you haha. You know I'm a sucker for pretty grey combos.

If you look at the closeup of Impeccable Greys, you'll notice the purple ring at the top of the bottle. Impeccable Greys is not just a grey polish; it's a gorgeous amethyst grey. Yup, it's like the color of a car. The hint of purple is really what makes Impeccable Greys my favorite grey everrr. The bottle is tiny though so I try not to use it a lot. What's the point, right? Haha, maybe I'll get another bottle so that I can use it freely. That's what I did with China Glaze - Turned Up Turquoise (ugh, such a lovely neon matte polish).

Let me know what you think of this color combo. Do you own Impeccable Greys? Best grey polish you own? Let me know, I want them aaaaalllllllll.

Thanks for reading!
