First post, and first nail art look of 2017! I wanted something simple, yet fun. Something neutral, but interesting.

I settled on a medium grey base with some white feather decals. It captured the look I wanted perfectly.

My base is two coats of Sephora Formula X in Grey Matter. Like most Formula X polishes, the formula is great. It’s opaque in two coats, and applies very smoothly and easily. This is a mini bottle from the X In The City Mini Nail Polish Set. I like Formula X mini bottles, they’re cute and easy to use, and while the brush is small, it works well with the formula and doesn’t create obvious brush strokes like some polishes.

I then added a few feather water decals as accents. These are plain white feathers, which show up well. I first tried some coloured feathers, but the grey is too dark to show contrast with anything but the lightest colours.

Overall, I’m very happy with the look. It’s not a traditional holiday or New Year’s Eve look, and makes for a nice transition into the new year. I’m a huge fan of grey polish, and this is a good one.

  1. It’s so simple, but I LOVE that feather on that background!

  2. That’s a really beautiful grey colour! Though grey is my favourite right now, so I’m just drawn to that in general. Love your choice of adding feathers in too 🙂

  3. Those feathers are so cute!

  4. Ah, I love grey-toned polishes for wintertime! The feather graphic is such a lovely detail too 🙂
