52WPNMC - Distressed & Grey + The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Dots

Hi all!

The last mani before the nail breaks and one I absolutely adored! I actually chose these colours because of a top I own. It just works together. And grey... you know how I love mani's with grey.

Today's polishes:

  • Catrice - 810 ACid DC
  • NYC - 003 Prey of Grey
  • China Glaze -  625 For Audrey
  • Sally Hansen - 420 Pacific Blue (old version)
  • L.A. Colors - NP136 Black Velvet
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

The bases are 2 coats. I used the distressed technique for my index and middle finger only. Distressed is so easy and quick, but because I wanted a mix I added dots to the other nails. ACid DC is still one of my favourite greens, which is the main reason I chose it for my accent colour. The dotting took a bit longer than the distressed nails, mostly from changing the polishes and wiping my dotting tool. I ended with Elemental Ward, which is becoming a favourite for me. It's on par with HK Girl, although I haven't done a proper comparison yet.

I love the bubbly dots, so whimsical.

I hope you like these as much as I do!
