Manicure Monday: Pink & Grey - The epitome of simple & girly.

Honestly, I'm not really a grey kind of person... or so I thought!

I've found that this colour is actually super chic and looks really pretty with a sweet pastel/baby pink. I wanted to try Zoya Dove, from the Intimates collection, but didn't want it to look too boring.. so I decided to jazz it up a little bit by adding some nail stickers I got eons ago at Sally Beauty.

Natural light


This is 3 coats of Zoya Dove with two of the bow stickers. I thought they looked a bit plain, so I added two longer stripes (supposed to be ribbon tails I guess..?) with Kiss nail art polish.

I really love the look of Dove, it's such a perfect muted grey, without looking stark or too blueish. The formula was ok, a bit runny and patchy in places which is why I need 3 coat. Not too bad though, Zoya is usually pretty good formula-wise. My topcoat is one coat of ORLY Sec n Dry over the polish, then the nail stickers and nail art polish, then one coat of Kiss Me Nail Mente topcoat to seal the stickers.

I really need to do a proper review on the Nail Mente, it's such a good topcoat.

Incidentally.. this mani kind of reminds me of my signature down the bottom of the post! Yeah, I just noticed that.

That's all for today, loves... It's ridiculously hot out here in inland SoCal so I haven't been wearing much makeup lately. I hope to do a FOTD post soon!
