Silver Dove

Happy Saturday Lovelies!

So I just realized that May is almost over and I have yet to post a grey mani for National Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

I have totally been failing at posting lately šŸ˜¦

Anyway, in support of the lovely Zara from Never Unpolished, I’m gonna try to squeeze in a couple of grey mani posts before the month is over.

Zara has a brain tumor (though she’s thankfully stable) and has beenĀ sporting grey tips Ā all month in support of the cause, so you should definitely check out her blog to see all the cool grey manis she’s come up with thus far šŸ™‚

I can’t believe the holidays are over and it’s the first official work day of the new year! What happened to December???

Anyway, after doing my Colts mani on Friday, I realized that the number of blues in my collection was severely lacking. So I decided to go to a couple of stores and do a haulĀ of some different blue nail polishes. Turns out I had excellent timing because a lot of places were having after Christmas clearance sales. Ā (AsĀ I type this I just realized that I left out a couple of the bottles I picked up when I did my swatches. Oops! )

Anyhow, today I have some swatches of two of the bottles I snagged. They’re actually pretty similar colors, but eachĀ beautifully blue in their own way šŸ™‚ Continue reading
