Office Nails: Waking Up in Vegas and Dove
Gray is a fantastic color. From sheer blouses to pencil skirts, gray pieces add a delicate refinement to an ensemble that darker neutrals cannot, and when it comes to nails, gray polish is no different.
As a neutral, gray is simultaneously conservative and complementary, with shades that work with every skin tone. For the summer, choosing a gray polish with cool undertones will have you abiding by the conservative company dress policy without boring yourself to tears.
Waking Up in Vegas by Deborah Lippman
Famed manicurist to the stars Deborah Lippman launched Waking Up in Vegas as part of her Spring 2010 collection. A creamy, opaque gray (click here to see how it looks when worn), the polish was sported by Lady Gaga on the Vanity Fair cover of the September 2010 Style Issue. At $16 a bottle, this polish falls on the pricier side of the nail polish spectrum, but its neutral coloring is always in season, ensuring that you get your money’s worth.
Dove by Zoya
Like Waking Up in Vegas, Zoya’s Dove was launched as part of a spring collection, albeit Spring 2011. Dove is a pale gray (click here to see how it looks when worn) that is cooler and cheaper ($8 a bottle) than Waking Up in Vegas; as a result, it works well with a wider range of skin tones. Dove combines the coolness of pastels with the sophistication of neutrals, creating a fun and classy polish.
