Grey and Purple

Remember when I asked you guys for ideas on grey nail polish and you sent me some great ideas and I bought them all?  Well the next two posts at least will have grey elements to them.

I've also realized that I am addicted to studs.  I can't get enough.  So that will be rampant for a minute on here as well.  Just sayin.....

Before we get to it, a story as always.

Have you guys updated your Apple products to iOS7?  If you haven't, stop what you're doing and do so. Wait, finish reading my blog first and then go do the update.

It has got to be the coolest update in a loooooooong time. I love Apple products.  I wish I could afford an Apple computer, but way too expensive for me.  I've been waiting for this software upgrade because I knew that there would be a new iPhone released.  I've been due for an upgrade since about May or so.  The iPhone 5S was released for ordering on Friday the 20th.  You bet I was at the AT&T store to order one up for me.  I'm told it will take 2-3 weeks for me to actually get it.  I've been waiting this long, I can wait a couple more weeks.

My favorite thing so far about the OS7?  The way the safari stores the pages you have open.  Before, you had to scroll left to right to see what you had open and what you didn't.  Now when you pull it up, it's like an accordion file.  Front to back so you can see the titles of the pages you have open.  How I love this!!  I'm also loving the way you close the apps by swishing them up.  Oh Apple, how I love you so.

What is your favorite part?

I am also experimenting with new hand poses.  I need you guys to tell me which ones you like and which ones you don't.  If there's one that someone out there does that you'd like me to do, tell me.  The different poses will be with the finished mani.

OK now back to the greyness.  Here is your silly bottle shot.

In back we have OPI You're Such A Budapest, Bettina Purple and OPI Vant To Bite My Neck?  Yes these are supposed to be purple IRL.  In front are my new BB Couture Grey Matter and Briquette.  This is my first time ever trying BB Couture. How very exciting!

I started with Grey Matter and an accent of Briquette.  Both of these have lovely shimmer through them. Here are the starting shots.

I think these are so pretty!  Next I added tape and painted the area white.

I then removed the tape and did some clean up.

 Then I did an ombre of purple dots.

Lastly I added a purple stud at the tip of the triangle.  Here are the results. Remember, tell me which pose you like.

Now these poses are not conducive to my close up and macro shots.  Do you guys like those or not?  I know what pose I'm partial to, but I want your unbiased opinion.

OK now go upgrade your Apple stuff!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
