I am quite pleased with how this turned out, I would have preferred it if the stars were a little bit smaller but I do love the wolf howling at the moon.
The first step was to chose my grey base colour, in the end I went for this Crabtree & Evelyn Mica, this is a charcoal grey creme. This is opaque in 2 coats and applies smoothly without any brush stroke marks. I received this polish in Decembers Meebox and I hadn't had chance to use it, I was impressed with the formula and it was the perfect tone of grey for the manicure I had in mind.
Once that was top coated and dry, I used my dotting tool for the yellow dots that were suppose to look like stars. Then for my accent nail I placed a french tip nail vinyl by my cuticle and then used my yellow Born Pretty store stamping polish to paint in the rest of my nail to create the moon.
Once my moon was top coated and dry I picked out Born Pretty stamping plate number 16 and the Born Pretty store black stamping polish for my wolf. I used my clear jelly stamper also from the Born Pretty store to stamp him on the bottom of my nail.
Considering I started this challenge not knowing what I was going to do for this theme I am quite pleased with how my wolf mani turned out. As I have previously mentioned this group is open to all nail addicts, and they come up with a different theme every 2 weeks. I love the challenge of coming up with ideas and putting certain colours together that you wouldn't have thought would look good.
Here is the full collage of all the manicures that were created for the yellow and grey theme. There are some fabulous designs for this one and some amazing ladies who created them. Head on over to the When Colours Collide Facebook page and join us for the next theme which will be Red and Black.
I hope you enjoyed this post and I would love to know your thoughts on my wolf mani, also have you ever thought of putting these two colours together, if so I would love to see your yellow and grey mani's. I hope you are all having a fab nail day and chat to you all again soon, some awesome posts coming up!
