Grey Nails: The Latest Neo-Morgue Beauty Trend

Looks like grey nails are the new black (or dark red). Gunmetal grey has gone from goth to glam, and I can appreciate it as a dramatic alternative to a deep, dark red or aubergine. But while the new, softer shades may look great in a cashmere sweater or wool skirt, I’m not convinced that they’re a viable option on the fingernails of mere mortals. At least, on living breathing mortals. Grey nails are just a little too neo-morgue for my taste. While I’m sure it’s possible to find an ideal shade, the risk of looking two days dead is just too high.

Wanna try it anyway? OPI's Moon Over Mumbai ($7) has been a best seller ever since it debuted in the OPI India Collection.

Or try a darker shade like butter London 3 Free’s Nail Lacquer in Chimney Sweep ($12), which has a slightly metallic sheen to it.

Sephora by OPI's Metro Chic ($9) is a purplish grey and also happens to be environmentally friendly.

 

What do you think of this new nail trend? Will you be donning grey fingertips this winter? Let us know in the comments section below.
