NAILS | Celebrating the First Day of Fall with a "Grey"- dient #CBBxManiMonday

OMGGGG. I love how I went from feeling totally on the ball with life and blogging while on vacation and now I am so zapped of energy that I feel like I never took two glorious weeks off to begin with! Oddly enough, I was tired of cleaning my beauty space for 5-6 hours a day so I was actually quite excited to head back into work and by Day 2 I was pretty much done. Not to say, I don't enjoy the challenges of my job and honestly I feel like I can stretch my brain in a different way there than in this blogging space. With that being said, I will be honest here in that I had prepared this manicure well in advance as I wasn't sure how coming back to work would hit me. The next thing I need to be honest about is that I only remember ONE colour I used because I didn't write anything down...

All I remember is that the base shade is Essie's "Toned Down"* from last year's Serene Slates collection and that's it. I think you can kind of see that I was going for a grey to purple to light pink sort of gradient and I was torn about sealing it all in with a sheer glitter polish like China Glaze Fairy Dust, but thought that maybe seeing the texture of the sponging was better? Often times, if you screw up a gradient, it can almost always be fixed with a glitter topper!

Anyway, I'm sorry I couldn't share more about the shades I used, but hopefully you get the gist! Have a great day everyone and be sure to check out: Renee, Trysh and Eithne's blog and social media channels for their manicures!
