Recycling Greys

When I did my last mani on Sunday, I realized that I still hadn't done a full China Glaze Recycle mani.  I used it for my fun bird design and for my mechanical design, but I haven't tried it on its own yet.  Now that I have, I don't know what took me so long!

China Glaze Recycle, Color Club Worth the Risque, Konad m65
I loved the grey and silver combo I used in my last mani so much, I decided to reverse it!  I used the rose design from Konad plate m65 with Color Club Worth the Risque.  I thought the roses softened up the dark colors really nicely.

China Glaze Recycle
China Glaze Recycle is a perfect slightly taupe medium grey creme.  The first coat was a bit streaky, but the second coat provide full coverage.  Like most China Glaze polishes, it dried shockingly fast.  Aside from the awesome color, I LOVE the name!  I'm a bit of a nut about recycling (visit a landfill sometime - you will be too!), so I think the name is great.

My class turned in their first paper on Tuesday - and all but one of them submitted it on time, so I was pretty happy!  It's exciting to have one paper down - and I'm kind of excited to have my first set of papers to grade :) (although I'm sure that will wear off by our fifth paper!).

I hope everyone is having a great week :)

I love that you're so enthusiastic about teaching and helping your students to learn. Wish my teachers were more like you when I was in school!
That mani is seriously awesome! Great job, Brooke!


If China Glaze polishes dry as fast as you say, I should check them out. Then my manis would look less messy. So glad your class is going well!
