Best Gray Nail Polish

So many shades of gray….Nail polish, that is.  Gray nail polish is a chic variation on a neutral manicure.  Stepping away from beige neutrals and into gray, is a great way to transition into the cooler months, but choosing a lighter shade of gray (think lilac and light blue based grays) can also make this trend doable in the summer.    Not to mention, there is more or less a shade of gray for every mood.  Whether you’re feeling dark and stormy, or cool and blue, we’ve picked an assortment of 10 tones of gray.  Check out these shades that range from drug store to high end.
