My love of gray is in full swing as this “it” color stays true in the spring, and now moves into beauty products. Lighter shades for nails go so well with this season’s alluring, feminine fabrics. Pale opal nails with romanic dresses of flowing chiffon, organza, tulle, and liquid jersey; and light grey nail polish to accessorize spring’s soft, watercolor tones.

Grey is a versatile and hip color for nails in everything from shimmers and silvers, but the defining “must have” tone will be a flat, dove grey.

Some picks:
* OPI Indian Collection has Moon Over Mumbai
* Rescue Beauty Lounge with its dove-gray shade Concrete Jungle (or) their other grey shade is Stormy.

My one huge piece of advice is that you need a bit of tan or you need to be very pale to pull this off. If you’re still in winter pasty don’t try this yet. Silver and metallics are more forgiving than the uber trendy flat, dove grey.
