NOTD: My Grey & Yellow Manicure

I love the grey and yellow color combination, so I decided to do a grey manicure with a yellow accent nail. This is also the femme flag for grad student (think highlighters! No one picked up on the flag, but I also only wore the manicure for a day or two. I used the following colors in my manicure.

From left to right: Sinful Colors’ Slate, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Traffic, Essie’s Pure Pearlfection, Sinful Color’s Let’s Meet

On all but the third-finger accent, I used a based coat (not pictured), two coats of Slate with one coat of Pure Pearlfection, followed by a top coat (also not pictured.) For the accent nail, I used two coats of Traffic followed by one coat of Let’s Meet to provide a shimmery, mustardy color. It was great!

I wore this for a couple days before I had the chance to take pictures, so there is some signs of wear. My middle finger nail tip also started to peel a bit, but I was so enamored with the Slate + Pure Pearlfection combo that I really wanted to share it with you. What is your favorite manicure of the moment?
