Shades of Grey

Now before you get all excited and think I'm going to talk about S&M and the book 50 Shades of Gray, I'm not.

I love black and white things.  Notice my blog background lately?  I just think it is such a sleek thing.  I just got in my fifth black and white glitter.  Yes people, I now have five different black and white glitters.  In a few days, I will be doing a dupe day post that compares these five just because I think it would be fun.  So stay tuned for that.

I was having a discussion with a friend of mine lately, and we were talking about black and white in the realm of life.  Do you see life as black and white?  Right and wrong?  I personally see life in shades of grey.  I don't think there is a line that if you are on one side you're right, the other you're wrong.  I think each decision is based on the scenario at the time.  For example, I speed all the time.  It's what I do. Now to policemen, that is a black and white issue, or is it?  I pass by many cops and I am going about 8mph over the speed limit.  I don't get stopped.  Why not? Isn't the law black and white?  Why is it that they don't pull me over?  In their mind, I am not speeding enough to bother pulling over.  They want the guys going 10+mph over the limit.  So in reality they are looking at each car and deciding case by case whether to pull you over for speeding.

That's shades of grey for sure.  My friend asked me, would I rather be right or happy?  This is another grey issue for me.  It totally depends on the situation.  At work, I'd rather be right.  I'm there taking care of people's lives and the wrong decision can kill someone.  In a relationship, it's gets more murky doesn't it?

Would you rather be right or happy?  Do you live your life in black and white or shades of grey?

To go along with this topic, I have an appropriate mani for you.  Here is the silly bottle shot.


Damn look at all those bottles eh?  In the back are Lilypad Lacquer In the Milkyway and KB Shimmer Grayscale.  Then in front is Llarowe White Wedding, Glitter Gal Black 3D and Lime Crime Milky Ways. Just realized two polish have the same name!

I started with a layer of Lime Crime, then a layer of White Wedding and finally a layer of Lilypad.  The Lilypad was way too sheer and there was no way I was going to glob on 5 coats to get coverage.  I was going for a sparkling snow effect.  Here are the starting shots.

You can't really see the sparkle. Unfortunately, this white holo isn't doing it for me!  I next added a layer of Grayscale.  This is a black and white glitter with pieces of grey scattered throughout.  I will get into the finer details when I do the dupe day amongst the five I have.  Here is that step.

This just might be my all time favorite black and white!  Stay tuned to find out how it compares to the others!
 
Am so loving this and this glitter!  Finally, I added my funky with Black 3D.  Here are the results.

I am in love with this mani!  I hated to take this off!  Plus it was a pain to get this glitter off-but oh so worth it don't you think?

Tell me about your life-do you live it black and white or shades of grey?

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
