[Totally Not] Tuesday: Grunge Nails (and a mea culpa...)

Okay, so this was supposed to be up ages ago but life and work made for a really terrible week and I just wanted to spend my weekend doing absolutely nothing that required more energy than lifting my remote up and down.  Yeah, it was that kind of week.

However, I must keep my TT word and post what I promised I would.  Now, let me preface and say I didn't know "grunge nails" was a thing before I checked out my Twinsies' posts.  In fact, I just thought I had to use a grungy color, so I opted for Cult Nails Midnight Mist.  Clearly, I was so off my mark on this one, so double my initial mea culpa by four.

From a recent limited edition collection that I had to haunt eBay to track down, Midnight Mist is an olive brown creme with hidden golden shimmer that appears at just the right light.  The color seemed apt for an Oscar the Grouch palette so I assumed that somehow equated to "grunge."

This is two perfect coats.

Please excuse the weird glare on my ring finger, but since it appeared in all my photos of this swatch, I assume there was a smudge on my camera that day.
