Manicures are more visually striking when they have dimension. Many hear dimension and their minds immediately go to all the crazy nail art out there that no woman with a normal schedule has the time or the supplies to do. Of course, nail art is stunning but a professional looking manicure with depth and intensity is even more so. To achieve that, you need to make your own blend, add a touch of shimmer, paint, and you are done. The manicure below is a fun play on the gray and navy trend that is very hot this spring. Here’s how to do it.


What You’ll Need:


  • Nail polish remover
  • Nail clippers
  • Emery board
  • Bowl of warm water
  • Cuticle pusher and snippers
  • Cuticle oil
  • Empty nail polish bottle
  • 1 gray nail polish
  • 1 navy nail polish
  • Loose silver shimmer pigment
  • Base coat
  • Top coat


How to Do It


  1. Remove any existing polish from your nails. You have to start with clean nails.

  3. Soak your hands in a bowl of warm water for 5-10 minutes and relax.
