Sally Hansen Dorien Gray

After the break I didn't really feel like doing any crazy colors, I wanted something subdued that wouldn't call attention to my sad little nub so I reached for Sally Hansen's Dorien Gray. I'm sure many other blogs have featured it since it's pretty old but a good classic gray to have. Two easy coats and you're done. But of course, that wasn't enough so I added a coat of Finger Paints Twisted for some fun.

And I didn't really love it. I tried mattifying it to see if that would help, but not really. So I decided to stamp it with RA-111 and Sally Hansen Silver Sweep.

Sorry the pics are so yellow, I took these at work.

Just look at the gorgeous flakies under the stamping! It looked like little windows into awesomeness. I really wasn't going to buy any of the Finger Paints flakies because I didn't think I needed them. I only caved in to Twisted because I was afraid of regretting it later. Only negative is that it takes FOREVER to dry and I didn't really want to add 2 layers of Seche Vite so there was a lot of waiting around.

Thanks for looking!
