I would change the colour of the nails maybe switch it around pink for the base coat and there will be grey for the dots in my opinion I think that would look nicer.
This happened to me a few years ago, I didn't even notice we were growing apart until the person suddenly just left, started seeming annoyed everytime I said anything to her, then would instantly get excited as soon as one of her new friends started talking to her, even though I'd been there for her every time she needed me. I'm still not over it, I guess.
Turquoise & Caicos is one of my favorite Essie colors, so no surprise I like this dotted mani. Try out your own color combo using the same technique.
