Put your (manicured) hands in the air! We’re introducing a W + P weekly special and it has to do with…drumroll please…wait, you already you guessed it…NAILS. The Monday mani (and sometimes pedi, too) will be compliments of Myka Barbato, owner of BUFF nail bar in Atlanta, nail guru, and ridiculously stylish person in general. I’ll let her take it away…

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?).

(Editor’s note: If you’re looking for a killer transitional grey in gel polish, Shellac makes one called Cityscape, pictured below.)

‘Til next Monday…
