Yesterday we had to say our last goodbyes to my aunt Ria who is now finally free of all the pain and discomfort a horrible neuron disease caused her.
I personally don't feel at ease wearing something outspoken or colorful to occasions like these so I set out to create a very unobtrusive manicure that was still me. Disclaimer: this is just how I feel about it and I don't mean to insult or attack anyone who feels otherwise.
I started by painting my thumb, index and pinky with three thin coats of KIKO 372 Nude and a coat of Seche Vite.
My middle and ring finger were done with one coat of essie Urban Jungle. After that had dried I did a smoosh manicure on them using several nude and neutral tints. Light to dark: essie Urban Jungle, OPI Stop it I'm Blushing!, KIKO 372 Nude, KIKO 508 Rose Sand and OPI Taupe-less Beach. On top of all that I stamped a design from UberChic 11-03 using Hit the Bottle Snowed In and of course a coat of Seche Vite was added to seal everything.
The polishes in a row:

(from the funeral announcement)
ik hou van jou, ik hou van jou
een dag, een jaar, een eeuw
ik weet dat liefde lente is
maar soms ook een beetje sneeuw
