Wheels Y4 and Z4: Ivory and Other Pale Neutral Cremes

With so many bright colors yesterday, and more coming up tomorrow, I decided almost no color for this Nail Wheel Wednesday would be a nice palette cleanser. A lot of the tips on these wheels look like I didn't paint them at all, but I promise I did.

  6. Lovely selection of neutrals! I don't own that many as I prefer flashier nails but I like seeing them on other people's nails.
