#52weeknailchallenge - week 8: Grey + Blue

Hi everyone!

I know, I'm late... but I still wanted to show off my manicure for the Grey + Blue prompt that was actually due last week. I struggled a bit as I wanted to do something with pale grey and dark blue and it was only when I spotted a really special grey polish that everything came together with this result:

The special grey polish that caught my eye is a-england Jane Morris. It's a dark grey scattered holo with some small blue flakies thrown in to add something extra. I've tried to take a close up to show the flakies a bit better. It'll enlarge when you click it:

I used two thin coats of Jane Morris on my thumb, index and pinky but you really only need one if you don't apply it too skimpy as I did.

I combined this gorgeous grey with a pale blue creme, Catrice ICONails 44 I Need Vitamin SEA that was painted in two coats on my middle and ring finger. After it had dried I stamped a geometric image from B. loves plates B.07 beauty of simplicity using Jane Morris and I finished with a generous coat of Seche Vite on all nails.

As usual the bottle shot:

It's a very simple look but I really like it, and of course Jane Morris was perfect for the grey + blue prompt as it is both colors in one bottle. I hope you like my manicure as much as I do :)

a-england Jane Morris was bought from The Nailista Shop (now closed).


  1. This shade of gray is extremely pretty and it works fantastic with the pale blue and the stamping pattern!

    1. Thanks!! I'm really happy with how this turned out so this is another one I'm going to have to re-do when my nails have grown back :)

  2. I was going to say I don't see blue, until your bottle shot and I realized how pale the blue is. Jane Morris stamps beautifully.

    Can I have it :P

    1. But but but... there's blue in the base AND there's blue in the grey!

      Hehe, first you want Glitch and now you want this one? You can borrow it... just come over and we can play with nail polish together ;) (and maybe drag Michelle along, I have a few pinks she can play with while we use the other colors :D

    2. So maybe I need colour glasses... And borrowing is no fun, can't you just give me all the pretties? Michelle can have the pinks, I'll take the rest!


Please let me know what you think. I may not reply right away but I will get back to you in the end... promised!
