Autumn Nails - Matte Grey

I love to experiment with nailpolish - and here I tried to make some sort of autumn look. I think the grey'ish colour is really autumny and the slight amount of glitters make them look a bit more festive as well. Clumsy as I am, I always mess up my nails right after I polished them! Who else has this too? Haha, I am surely not the only one! Therefore I didn't photograph my thumb, as that was messed up -_- Enjoy it anyways! 

I started with applying the grey nailpolish from Essie (fall in love). I applied two layers as one layer didn't bring out the colour very well. After the layers dried, I applied a little bit of Rimmel Glitter Bomb on each nail. I applied the glitters on the lower part of the nail only, as I don't like an overload of glitters. The Glitter Bomb topcoat is from the Christmas collection from last year I believe, and I am not sure if it's in the Rimmel collection this year as well. 

When the glitters are applied and the gel has dried, it's time to apply the final layer. I used a frosting topcoat from Catrice. With this topcoat you can turn every shiny nailpolish into matte - in my opinion one of the best inventions when it comes to nailpolish. You can give your old nailpolishes a whole new look on your nails with a frosting topcoat! 

This is how it looks on light clothes, and on the top picture you can see how it looks on dark clothes. 

What do you think of this look?


  1. I love your nails! I'm definitely going to have to try it. I've never been the best at nail art but this one seems pretty straightforward - definitely going to give it a go!
