Gray Color for a Gray Mood

Essence PointBreak was opaque in 2 coats but it only took 1 coat for me to realize I didn't like it. I would love to give this color a good review but it is just so blah to me. I guess I'm affected by the immediate transition, or should I say lack of transition, from Summer to Fall. It was 90 degrees and sunny last week and today there's no sun to be found.

I've been really sad today and this color is not helping at all. I tried to spice it up a bit by adding my favorite, pink, along with a little white for brightness. The weather here has been awful the past few days and DH suggests we move to California to beat the fall blues.........
Speaking of DH, we had to take a trip to the emergency room over the weekend. He had severe abdominal pain which turned out to be a gallstone. Because it was so urgent, I had to take the girls with me and they talked the entire time. I guess after a while it drove DH a little crazy. My oldest daughter felt so bad that when we got home she made him a "Dad Get Better Card". It was the cutest thing I ever saw so I thought I'd share it with you.

In case it didn't come across your screen. She says she hopes he gets better soon and sorry for talking, lol.

..............Here's the outcome of my little experiment. The white and pink helped this color out tremendously.
I also put glitter over the top but I think it was a bit much :(Ulta After Party)
Well that's it for today. I have so much studying to catch up on since I've been managing the girls solo. Until I polish again.........................


  1. thats a gorgeous mani! the white & pink really does brighten it up! and that card was so cute! especially the .. "sorry for talking" - haha. i hope "DH" gets better as well~

  2. that's such a pretty look on ur nails! creative too! ^.^

  3. I actually love that color... but I also dont think I would ever wear it without adding some sort of design or something on top of it

  4. I think the grey is a very pretty color :)
