Feeling Grey: Welcome Back, Nails!

Finally, it's time to get back up on the saddle! I took a few days (erm.. maybe a little longer) off to collect my thoughts and try to get things back in order in my personal life but I am (hopefully) baaack! I think I'm officially ending my participation in the challenge. I sort of feel like a quitter but it's hard to get back into it. 

Things are hopefully getting back on track in my personal life. I've found a possible new job opportunity (FINGERS CROSSED FOR ME) and I just started talking to a new, absolutely amazing guy. Hoping both of these things continue to go well for me. It's nice to come out of a dark phase to some amazing, positive things. 

This is the first manicure I painted to get back into things. I was feeling very grey so I decided to use a grey polish for the first time. I only own this one, and I only bought it so I could one day do newspaper nails. I still have yet to do that. But, whatever. This is Essie Power Clutch.


This is two coats of Essie Power Clutch. I used Essie A Cut Above on my middle finger and Essie Stroke of Brilliance on my ring finger. These are both from the Luxeffects collection. Love these glitters! 

Do you own any of the Luxeffects? How about Power Clutch? What do you think?


  1. Keep your head up girl! Know that whatevers going on...your nails look bomb! haha! :)

  2. Welcome back and what a beautiful manicure to start things of:)

  3. What a gorgeous mani, I never would have thought that those glitters would go with that base, I'll definitely have to try it! Welcome back :) I hope your new endeavors work out :)

  4. I love the accent nails! Sending good thoughts and positive vibes your way! :)

  5. I'm glad things are looking up for you! And I really wanna know more about this guy!!!! :)
    I love this grey. I wear it a ton, and I've paired it with that silver Essie & loved how it looked.
