I'm Generally Ignorant to Color Today


Hello, Fireflies!

I admit it, I'm a little burned out.  Between all these challenges, and all the green, green, green I've been painting, I just wanted something simple.  Something monochromatic.  Something... ignorant?  How about LynBDesigns General Ignorance, a milky grey crelly with black and holo glitter?

I love this.  My only complaint is that the holo gets covered by the crelly and it's hard to see.  There's a large holo circle glitter on my index finger.  Do you see it? Just the shape - no shine.

I added a dark grey French tip with Ulta Total Eclipse

I wanted a little more pop, so I added a thin white line between the glitter and the tip.  Perfect!


Don't forget the topcoat!

Do you ever feel like going monochromatic?

    1. Really? I love grey so much, and it's nice to just pair it with black and white. No guessing! lol

  2. That is a pretty palate cleanser :)
    As for challenges - I find them stressful and draining, and my creativity suffers :)

    1. I think I need to find a balance with the challenges. I love doing them because they often make me go outside my comfort zone and try new things. But when I'm stressing about the schedule and tired of using the same color, then something's off for me, and I have to take it down a notch.

    1. Thank you! If I'd planned it out better, I would have done the white first, and then covered part of it with the dark tip, but it worked out okay.

    1. Thanks! Once I learned how to do a French tip freehand, it's a nice way to add a little nail art to almost any look!

  9. The base color is already pretty unique, but those two-toned contrasting french tips brought this mani to a whole new level. Stunning!

    1. Thank you! I was originally planning on just doing dark grey tips, but I'm glad I added the white. I'm glad you agree! :)

  10. I like what you did with it. However, I have to say I'm always disappointed when holo glitters are covered by the polish formula.

    1. I'm with ya! You can't see them at all. I wonder if I'd like it more or less if the polish was more blingy.
