Do you remember last fall’s “greige” nail polish trend? It was a putty color that was a blend of gray and beige. Well, it’s back. But this time greige gets mixed with other pastel shades, like green, purple, pink, and brown. I call them muddy pastels, and they’re perfect for transitioning from a summer of bright colors to fall’s toned-down neutrals. Click through this slideshow for five sure-to-sell-out-fast options:
Moss mixed with khaki becomes Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Khaki Vert ($25, chanel.com).
If you always go for a light ballerina pink, try Revlon’s Gray Suede ($5, cvs.com), which has just a tinge of grayish beige in it.
Still crave color? You’ll like Dolce & Gabbana The Nail Lacquer in Drama ($20, saks.com), a toned-down eggplant.
For a shimmery, metallic version of greige, try Duri Cosmetics Nail Polish in Angelic Dust ($5, duricosmetics.com).
A girlie pastel purple gets a moody makeover. SpaRitual Lacquer in A World of Compassion ($10, skinstore.com).
