Gray Day

Zoya Dove

For this manicure, I freehanded french tips with Zoya Dove.  I actually got SO many compliments on this manicure.  I really liked it!  It was subtly different.



OPI Silver Shatter over Zoya Dove

This combination didn't work out nearly as well as I had hoped.  Perhaps if the french color had been different (like hot pink?) it would have given a better contrast.  Also, the shatter polish doesn't shatter as well without a base color under it (I only had Seche Vite under it).  But I still love OPI's new Silver Shatter - it is gorgeous and so unique!

Love your nails! OPIs shatter is really popular lately. I really wonder how it actually works.

What a creative idea, I love this look! My nails aren't long enough to pull this off, but I love the color of dove, and the name doesn't hurt either!

I really like this gray tipped manicure. Your freehand is amazing... I love the tipped manicure by itself, but not a fan of the shatter over it. I think it hides your awesome gray tips!!!! Nice manicure. I have tried the tipped manicures before several times and mine NEVER come out looking as good as yours!
