Grey Ombre with Added Oomph!

Hey y'all.  The weather around here has got me feeling a little bit dreary.  So I thought grey was an appropriate color to wear.  I started out with two coats of OPI's My Boyfriend Scales Walls, which is a very light grey. 

This is a really bad picture because it just looks white, but it's the only one I have. 
I didn't bother taking any other pictures because I knew I would be sponging on top of this.  I then picked up OPI's French Quarter for Your Thoughts which is a dingy dark grey.  Sometimes it looks like it has green undertones.  I blotted that on with my sponge next.  And after that I used Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees for the tips.  I didn't want to go straight up black on the tips because I thought it would be too drastic of a transition.  And I wanted to stick with the more grey side of things.  I topped it all off with OPI's Pirouette My Whistle-a nice sheer glitter (that's the added oomph I talked about in the title of this post).  I think if anything, it's the closest I've ever come to 'galazy' nails.  Hahah. 

L to R- My Boyfriend Scales Walls, French Quarter for Your Thoughts, Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees, and Pirouette My Whistle.  Plus the CD that I use to dab my polish off of.

What do you guys think?  It's actually gotten quite a few hits on facebook.  Exciting!  Do you rather ombre with bright colors or neutrals?  Or does it matter?  Have you tried sponging before?


P.S.  Here is a bonus picture of the dreadful removal of my 'feel good' manicure!  Damn you, cute chunky glitter! It probably would have  been easier with the foil method but I was too lazy to get the foil!


  1. I love that!!!! And I really like the OPI glitter you put on top.

  2. Love that grey gradient, and love the addition of the glitter! Super cool!
