Winter can be so... grey. But grey nail polish is chic! Grey cream polishes are some of my favorites because they are simultaneously subtle and stunning.
While how you spell it may be influenced by where you grew up, there's a school of thought that "grey" and "gray" are different shades. Cloford.com actually has gray v grey defined down to the hex code - #D3D3D3 is "light grey" and #A9A9A9 is "dark gray". Whether you spell it grey or gray, it's still an achromatic color - or colour - that's great to wear on your nails.
I adore gradient manicures! The subtle change in brightness is edgy while still looking polished. My best attempt at a gradient manicure was created with the grey polishes in my collection. Listed from thumb to pinky (light to dark or grey to gray, if you will), the nail polishes I chose are Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Wet Cement", MAC "On the Prowl", Pure Ice "Kiss Me Here", CND "Asphalt", and OPI "Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees".
What's fun about wearing a grey gradient is that when you look at your nails, it looks like the light is playing tricks with your polish and maybe a few of your fingers are in a shadow.
What colors have you tried creating a gradient manicure with?
