Okay so I’m a little behind the times, because this was all over the runways last fall, but I’ve recently been on the hunt for the perfect gray nail polish after being inspired by Petra Guglielmetti’s post on the Glamour blog. I made a trip to a local Rite Aid and was disappointed that I couldn’t find a single solid color of gray, and instead kept running into variants of silvers and glitter.
But I think I found something better. A couple days ago, I went to visit Carlos Lobo Salon in midtown and thought I was out of luck again, when I eyed this beautiful shade called Body Language by Essie. It’s more of a dove-colored polish, but has this gorgeous hint of a gray-lavender to it that’s just neutral enough to give off a sophisticated vibe at the office, but still funky enough for a change. I can’t stop looking at my nails!
What do you think of this color? I took a couple more embarrassing photos of my hands in different poses below (yes, I am the only person without an iPhone, leavemealonekthanks) to try to catch the color, though I still think it’s a tinge more gray in real life. Do you have any current favorite nail polish shades right now? I want to know!
