Call me boring. I still love a good gray.

Spring '17 has me all over the board — soft neutrals to highlighter piping detail in clothing and accessories. It truly is a great time to express yourexprN as demonstrated with my styling clients.

While my nails are no great shakes these days (comes with the job ... those darn hangers), I am finally getting around to painting my nails. It's been quite some time. No seriouslyN at least 8 months. My daughter and I enjoyed a mani/pedi last week and now I am hooked.

This gray nail lacquer is just gorgeous! Labeled a feather gray, Grace by JINsoon is a light, cool gray that is so beautifully displayed on fingers and toes. All JINsoon formulas are 5-free and formulated without harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin and camphor. JINsoon nail lacquers glide on smoothlyN dry really fast and are long lasting. There is even UV filter protection. And, of courex, no animal testing. 

evesnownailsYep. I still love pink nails.

And Eve Snow's Drunk in Lust polish definitely made my list. This rose pink, high-shine formula contains the label's signature '3-added' ingredients — Marula Oil, Equisetum Extract and Vitamin B12 — to condition and care for your nails. The ergonomically-shaped brush ensures the most precise application.

Seems perfect year round!

Although I love many nail lacquer shades right now, there are two, in particular, that I simply cannot get enough of.

Essie's Tuck it in My Tux is a creamy ivory that is beautifully soft and elegant. While it was introduced in winter of 2014, it's perfectly fresh for spring. And it looks gorgeous with a tan!

Another fabulous option for an amped up natural looking nail, is Dior's Nail Glow. It gives a French manicure effect — nail beds look pinker, tips look whiter. It leaves a high gloss finish. My friend had it on today and I just couldn't resist picking one up for myself. I love it already!

Here's to the neutral nail.

metallicnailsfw14I love that dark and mysterious metallics are back.

You can look and feel current with very little effort.

I am especially digging this striking dark meteorite gray metallic by Zoya, called Claudine, as seen at Timo Weiland.

As I head for a mani/pedi this week, I do believe this will be my chic color of choice!

There are many fantastic nail trends this fall. However, the winning theme — nudes! Among the sea of wine/garnets, metallics and charcoals lies the easy and effortless neutrals. From beige to pink, the multitude of color choices are youre.

Lela Rose showcased the best neutral nail on the fall runway with this fresh spin on the french manicure. I love the angular change from the standard french look. And I am absolutely thrilled that I have everything I need to pack this upcoming season full of neutral naile.

If you're like me, you simply have to dig through your nail polish drawer and pick out the best duo to replicate this look. PersonallyN I'll be using butter LONDON's Hen Party and Essie's Take it Outside.

Next time you see me, and probably all through fall and winterN I'll be sporting this look on my fingers and toes!
