You can’t open a beauty blog or magazine these days without seeing the latest craze in nail polish: the gray/beige nail. This trend was started by Chanel for the Spring 2010 runway with a color they call Particuliere #505. Other nail polish lines have followed suit with their copycat versions, including OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques. I have resisted the trend mostly because the shade would not flatter me. However, I have recently discovered a cafe au lait color I adore and plan to wear all spring and maybe into the summer. It is OPI’s Barefoot in Barcelona. I am modeling it here for your viewing pleasure (wink). Barefoot in Barcelona does not have the drama of Chanel’s Particuliere; however, it is the right shade for me and it pairs perfectly with my springtime fashions.
In my New Year’s newsletter, I gave you 5 style resolutions, one of them about interpreting the trends. This is the perfect example of interpreting a trend. I am putting my own twist on the spring’s funky neutral nail polish to suit my personal style. Dish… What will be your go-to nail color this spring?
