Mani Monday: Grey ombre nails

I think everyone knows by now that I’m just terrible – terrible – at nail art. I’m uncoordinated and clumsy and completely lacking in the finesse needed to do fiddly fancy shit on my nails. I am, however, capable of doing something as simple as a basic ombre manicure. When I was Instagram waffling over which shade of grey nail lacquer to apply, the excellent gals there suggested that I wear all of them at once in a grey ombre manicure. Grey ombre nails: dead easy to apply and tailor-made for the indecisive.

    I REALLY want to make a 50 shades of grey joke, but I KNOW I make them too often. So instead I’m just going to compliment you on your stunning manicure.

    I really like this manicure. It is stunning.

      I think that’s why I love grey nails so much as well – they’re understated yet bold, classic but in a very forward way. Plus, you know, I want to be a robot.
