The Neverending Pile Challenge: Grandma nails

Hi folks! I hope those of you in the US had a safe and fun holiday weekend! It's very hot and humid here today, and we have no A/C, so I'm a little grumpy. The heat is also doing weird things to my bottle of Out the Door, so in case you're wondering why my mani looks a bit bumpy and bubbly...that's why.

Anyway, this is my last week doing the Neverending Pile Challenge! I can't believe I've kept it up for three months now! I think I only skipped two prompts. And I've tried a LOT of untried polish.

Today's prompt is your best granny color. What's more granny-like than dusty rose? I have two shades of dusty rose/pink that I thought would go well together: China Glaze Fifth Avenue and Julep Joy. I didn't have a lot of time (you'll see why very soon!) so I just did kind of a messy dotticure.

Despite its fuddy-duddyness, I actually really like this kind of color, since it's closer to a neutral than your average pink. And it looks way better on me than true pink does.

Total untrieds tried: 71 + chevron decals + 3 stamping plates



  1. Nice combination of these two grandma looking pinks :)

  2. I love grandma colors! Why you no have A/C? I would DIE without it!
