Nails are my favorite accessory. It’s like a bright lip — a small detail that makes a big impact. Watching people pick their nail colors is highly entertaining. It’s like the last decision they’re ever going to make, which is odd because it’s only going to last five days, a week if you’re lucky (and abstain from normal things like washing dishes or digging keys out of the bottom of an overstuffed bag)!
This month, it’s all about transition into fall, so we’re pushing a lot of dark neutrals–greys, blacks, and deep reds. To keep them playful, try some simple nail art or an accent nail in a different color.
That’s our fave color this week: RGB in Steel. On fingers and on toes, this dove grey works for everyone and is light enough to still look appropriate during a heatwave (PS, why is it still so hot in September?).
If you can’t make it to BUFF for a mani (#bummer) or find Steel (currently sold out on RGB’s site, $18), there are plenty of alternatives out there, like Butter London’s Billy No Mates ($10) and Zoya’s Dove ($8).
(Editor’s note: If you’re looking for a killer transitional grey in gel polish, Shellac makes one called Cityscape, pictured below.)
Forget 50 Shades (and those psychos protesting the movie casting). This is real-life grey you can get excited about.
‘Til next Monday…
