I started with two coats of China Glaze Pelican Gray, then I mixed some Pelican Gray with black and sponged that over to get the look of the grey sock fabric. I used OPI Alpine Snow for the mouth area and OPI The Thrill of Brazil for the actual mouth. They eyes were made using a dotting tool and China Glaze Liquid Leather. Admittedly, their mouths kind of look scary, they were pretty hard to do with just a dotting tool and not a striping brush.
This was a fun mani to wear for a while, but they're not exactly what I envisioned. I guess I'm too much of a perfectionist sometimes. Best of luck if you're headed back to school tomorrow like I am!
