Yellow and Grey Angular Pattern

Today's 31 Day Challenge manicure is something a little simpler. I love angular, mazelike patterns, and I especially love them in color combinations like this. Grey and yellow is one of my favorite pairings. I chose one of my best greys and one of my best yellows for this look, and went to work!

The base is Misa Grey Matters. I'm sure you've seen me use this before! It's a neutral medium grey with a slight silver shimmer and some darker flecks that give it the look of subtle static. Truly one of my most favorite polishes in my collection.

The yellow was freehanded on with Sally Hansen Lightening. I've used this shade frequently, as well; the opacity is fantastic and I love the Insta Dri formula, especially for nail art.

Doesn't this kind of look like an angular fingerprint pattern or something? I'd love to try a freehand fingerprint pattern sometime.

Loving this yellow? Check out my yellow challenge looks from the past:


  1. What an interesting pattern. The grey goes so well with the yellow.

  2. Love that pattern! This color combo is one of my favorites!
