Another effort in layering, this (though you can barely tell) had a base of OPI Suzi Takes The Wheel (really close to the French Quarter grey but a little more green-tint to it) which I then taped off to add OPI Color To Diner For.  While that was still taped, I added some strokes in the opposite direction using a black striper in a loose sort of effect (which was later exaggerated by a runny top coat, only adding to the decayed feel).  I sort of like these little random weird things that pop up when you start with one color and just see where everything goes.
