Beautiful colors are blooming in fashion and makeup for spring — pinks, purples and oranges. Therefore, you might be surprised that one of the hottest colors in nail polish for the season is gray.
Here are three gray nail colors that we really love. You can coordinate them with gray eye shadow, along with pink lips and cheeks.
Dior Vernis Nail Enamel in Gris Montaigne (pictured right)
From the Dior Spring 2011 makeup collection, you’ll adore this gray nail enamel. This soft medium gray goes on beautifully with a slightly glossy finish. This limited edition color is available at Nordstrom and priced at $21.00. If you like a gray that is a little blue, check out Dior’s Bond Street and if you want a little shimmer, their NY 57th is a hot choice.
Sephora by OPI Nail Polish in Shiny Dancer
From the Urban Ballerina Collection, this color is an opaque slate gray with just a touch of iridescent glitter. At $9.50, you can’t beat the price on this fabulous color. Check out the whole collection at Sephora.com — you’ll also love Break A Leg-Warmer, which is an opaque charcoal gray.
China Glaze Anchors Away Polish in Pelican Gray
From the Spring 2011 Anchors Away collection, Pelican Gray is a lighter shade that the others. This light dove gray is one of 12 new colors for spring from China Glaze. Whether you like brights, metallics or soft hues, you’ll love this collection. And at just $3.99 a bottle at Amazon, you’ll want them all.
