This fall is all about taking your nail color to another dimension. Forget bright neon shades or translucent nudes; instead think smoky gray or gunmetal. I'm obsessed with the gray nail trend because it's so simple, yet bold and unconventional. Ranging from metallic to blue or purple toned shades, these grays and are just the perfect colors to compliment your bold autumn outfits. Think outside the box and try on one of these modern, mysteriously dark polishes!
