Grey Matters


     If you google 'holiday nail art', prepare for a bombardment of red and green glitter, stippled Santa faces and snowflakes galore. Coming from a girl who isn't exactly the über-festive ugly Christmas sweater wearing and egg nog drinking type, these designs are far from my style. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a merry mani, I just prefer mine on the subtler side. 
     When Julep asked me to interpret their holiday-themed 'Deck Your Nails' manicure tutorial in my own terms, I was as jolly as can be. The look, an almost reverse French manicure, is very modern and eye-catching while still being simple and wearable. For the base of the manicure I used a light grey polish that reminds me of all the cozy grey cashmere sweaters that I love to wear during winter, and for the half-moon detail I used burgundy to incorporate a pop of classic holiday color. Which colors would you chose for your own holiday mani?
