I Pink Your Gray

pink and gray step by step

I was reading through the Instyle Your Look special issue when I came across a picture of a woman wearing a beautiful pink trench coat over a gray sweatshirt. The pale pink and light gray seem so spring but when worn in thick, fall appropriate clothing that color combination becomes edgy and breaks the rules of “proper fall colors”.

Inspiration from Instyle's your look special issue

I wanted to capture that in my nail art so I used these awesome shades of pink and gray nail polish.

The reason this outfit caught my eye is that it is so simple, no embellishments, no bells and whistles. I wanted to carry that into the manicure so I started by painting my nails pink and my pointer finger gray, as an accent nail. Then, I created an exaggerated french manicure using the gray over pink.

  1. LOVE IT! I am not usually one for wearing super sweet shades of pink, but lately, I love it – perhaps I’ve been subconsciously picking up on the incoming trend! 😉
