A little while ago my friend Jess mentioned that she wanted matte grey nail polish. I thought that sounded intriguing, but in my haste to find flourescent pink nail polish, I forgot about it. When I got the Stylish Dress book in the mail, however, I noticed matte grey nail polish on the models. At first I thought it looked strange, but I also thought it looked AMAZING.
I looked around online and realized that this was definitely a trend in the making, but that I wasn't going to find matte grey (i.e. non-metallic) nail polish at the drug store. I decided to make my own, using $4 bottles. If Rimmel is good enough for Kate Moss, it's good enough for me.
I added a little bit of the black to the white, a little at a time, and shook it as best as I could for as long as I could manage. It is surprisingly difficult to mix two colours of nail polish.
I didn't paint my nails very well, but this is the result. I like it! It looks vaguely like the pastel blue nail polish I wore for a few years in high school, but I can get past that.
