Manicure Monday - Studs And Things

By Kristine Lam - November 17, 2014

Firstly, I apologize for my lack of posts lately. Life and work is getting a little hectic. All I've been able to squeeze out for the blog is a mani monday post this week again :(...and it might remain this way for the next few weeks. I will try to schedule a few posts if possible to keep this blog lively-ish!

Temperatures are dropping below 0 here and it's freeeeeezing! This calls for all the dark and gloomy shades on my nails as well - but I ain't complaining about that part ;)

If you follow me on instagram (@kiyoko), I did post about grabbing two essie polishes for uber cheap a while back! Half price off these babies - Vested Interest, a muted greyish-teal and Cashmere Bathrobe, a dark grey with microglitter.

I thought the grey-ish tones would go nice with some silver accents. Studs were the perfect option along with a metallic silver on the ring finger.

And for the thumb, I went for a matte black with a glossy tip. I was definitely feeling extra fancy with all the different textures in this manicure!

Are you switching up your bright nails for darker shades for the cold weather?
