Fresh Paint: Nine Must-Have Neutral Nail Polish
When a new season's nail shades hit the magazine pages, I'm the first to slather on the latest cherry red or playful pink. But these days, a real job and other grown-up aspects of my life require that I rock the season's styles with a slightly more neutral approach. And after trying them all on for a test run, I've decided we could all use a few gritty grays and sandy browns in our lives. Whether we're in the mood for a muted pink or a creamy yellow, this year's trends feature a slew of new and muted shades. So let's welcome them with flying colors—nine trendy neutral ones, to be exact.
Essie’s Nice Is Nice
Essie’s whimsical, light lavender shade reminds me of spring flowers and grape-flavored snow cones. ($3.95, Amazon.com)
The color of freshly melted s’mores chocolate, this warm, summery brown was all over the runways. The rich color oozes glam—whether you’re Vegas poolside or at the head of the conference table. ($5.85, Amazon.com)
Take on warm weather’s nature-inspired vibe with a coat or two of Camel’s warm, nutty beige. It goes on light and sheer, lending a decidedly warm-weather feel to the neutral color. ($14, UrbanOutfitters.com)
