A Delicate Grey Layering

Semi-lazy weekend post for today! OPI My Pointe Exactly and Pahlish Typewriter Keys from Shannon's etsy shop.  I think this might be one of my favorite layering combinations -- check it out!

I cannot believe how amazing this combo turned out!
Check out the pics below for MPE on its own

I took these pics last night without intending to 
post them but they actually turned out pretty nice!

The amazing thing is that this was only 3 thick coats of MPE to achieve full opacity (contrary to the ridonkulous 6-8 coats that I've heard around the interwebs ><). It is so pretty on it's own! The additional perks of self leveling and an extremely forgiving formula make it that much more amazing. Can you believe that I didn't even have to do clean up on the last two pics?! That is cray cray. You may have also noticed that I filed down my nails -- GUYS, I was freaking out! My nails were the longest they've ever been in my entire life. That's nuts... I kept thinking they were going to break somehow so I filed them down. Glad I did because I am much happier at this length =D. So what do you guys think? Gonna give OPI Ballet Collection a chance? Gonna hoard some Pahlishes while you're at it too? Hehehe, have a wonderful weekend everyone!

3 coats? That is nice because of the "nail line problem" (that didnt cover it) I didnt pay attention to this collection (except for Pirouette My Whistle) but now you changed my opinion.

LOVE IT! I just missed out on typewriter keys last night. If only I'd put it in my cart 5 mins earlier!!! Looks great, My Pointe Exactly looks great at full coverage. I've only seen swatches with VNL and it's made their hands look a little zombie like! Now I want it too!!
