trendy tips: the neutral mani

{mac love lace, essie mambo, opi you don’t know jacques! & lippmann satin doll}

my favorite nail trend right now is the neutral-shade manicure. it’s everywhere! not surprising that chanel’s spring colors set off a chain reaction that’s carried its way to my own little sister, christina, in highpoint, nc where her current favorite is sephora by opi’s under my trench coat and her roomie, nikkie is loving opi’s you don’t know jacques. my personal fave is lippman’s satin doll and i adored the way sandra bullock carried off a yet-to-be-confirmed color at the golden globes. the thing about a neutral mani is that it leans and lengthens your digits, it’s eye catching without being flashy. looking for your own neutral shade? go for clay-like polishes with mocha or gray undertones and let us know if you fall for any i may have missed!

    I need to try some of these! Never too early to be scouting for a perfect wedding-day neutral. :)

    I have MAC’s Love Lace, and adore it! I’m also a big fan of You Don’t Know Jacques.

    oOooOo, great tip! I’ve been wanting to do neutral but I always buy pink polishes & don’t get the look I want. I like your tip about the mocha/gray undertones – I will give it a try!
