Fall beauty trend: grey nails


The fall runways saw a departure from the bold greens, blues and purples of seasons past. All of a sudden, muted sophistication ruled the runway with varying shades of grey nail polish. Designers from Oscar de la Renta to Marc Jacobs (the latter, left) trotted out the shade on their runways. 
Below, some of our favorite takes on the trend.

butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Chimney Sweep
