New 31 Day Challenge - Day 13 - Cheer Yourself Up Mani

Hey everyone! I'd like to congratulate the winner of the OPI DS Sapphire Giveaway, Gini! Thanks to all of you for sticking with the blog and entering the giveaway! Today's challenge asks for a manicure that can cheer you up. My favorite nail polish color to wear is gray, and one of my favorite (and one of the easiest!) nail art techniques is the gradient. I combined the two for these nails.
The darker gray is CND Asphalt. Sadly, CND doesn't produce non-shellac polishes anymore, so this one is discontinued. Pick it up if you can get it, it's such a lovely blue-gray polish. I added gradiented tips using Butter London Billy No Mates, a light gray cream. I can't get enough of these two colors together. This manicure definitely would cheer me up if I wasn't already so cheerful!

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the gorgeous nails of the wonderful ladies participating in this challenge along with me!
