Mish Mash Challenge: Grey Nails

Hello everyone!  We've made it back around to Wednesday so I've got another Mish Mash Challenge manicure to show you.  I'm also rocking some shorter nails today.  The length was getting out of hand and I had about 5 patches on each hand so I decided to trim them back to a more manageable length before a catastrophic break made me go full nubbin! 

This week's theme is "grey".  I had one heck of a time figuring out what to do and in the end I cheated a little bit by adding a pop of another color, but I think they turned out so pretty that I'm hoping you won't mind too much.

I started with 3 coats of 2% Milk by Wet 'n' Wild and then added a sponge gradient with Sinful Colors Jungle Trail on top.  2% Milk is my favorite nude of all time, I think.  I love the sheerness and jelly quality it has.  I liked the look of the gradient but I wanted to add something extra.

Daring Digits' Star Storm fit the bill perfectly!  Star Storm is a grey-based jelly with green and white stars, white and holographic hexes, and tiny green and white glitters.  I hadn't tried this color yet and I can't think's simply stunning!  I'm sad to report that Ashley, Daring Digits' creator, has retired and this polish is no longer available.  I have a few bottles of DD and I'll be rationing them carefully as they'll have to last me forever....waaaaaaaaa!!

I hope you enjoyed this manicure and I hope you'll stop by and give the other Mish Mashers some love this week!  I can't wait to see what they've done.  You can find their posts via the thumbnails below.  Thanks so much for reading!
