Nails of The Day: Dark Grey with Silver Sparkle: Essie "Power Clutch" and China Glaze "In The City"

It's no secret that I'm not great at self manicures but that doesn't stop me from doing them all the time. Manicures at the salon can really add up so I usually keep those for special occasions and attempt applying my own otherwise. Also, I know people usually go to get a mani as a way of relaxing but for me it's the opposite, as soon as I get in I'm hoping for it to be over and waiting for it to dry is just painful! Anyways, this is one of my favorite combos for the cold months. I used to wear "berry hard" which is a maroon color by Essie all winter long. But I've expanded my collection quite a bit since and now wear navy, red, purple, green and all colors of the rainbow. This color called Power Clutch is part of Essie's winter collection from last year. I've really liked it since the first time I put it on. It's a great opaque carbon grey shade, goes on evenly and dries so quickly. The glitter silver/navy  polish is called "In the City" by China Glaze. I love all glittery things. You can find a polish like this by pretty much every nail polish company that exists. This one is pretty sheer so I wouldn't wear it on it's own but it does look great on top of an opaque polish. I painted on two coats of the grey color let that dry and then added the glitter to the tips area in a thick strip.
