Gimme Some Greige

I never thought I’d be singing the praises of the grey-beige hybrid known as “greige,” but here we are. It seems like it should be the ultimate boring color. But, it turns out, it’s actually really lovely.

I made this discovery a couple of weeks ago. I stopped at the beach one especially hot late August afternoon to dip my toes in the water and spotted an impossibly chic woman lying under her beach umbrella, perfectly pedicured toes resting in the sand. Her nails were a beautiful lavender-greige and they looked fresh, pretty, and absolutely perfect with a tan at the beach.

I immediately went home and started researching greige nail colors. I came across Londontown Lakur in Beaumont, which was precisely the shade I was looking for. I promptly ordered it and impatiently waited for it to arrive.

I’ll admit, this cool shade is a sharp departure from my usual hot pink summer toe nail polish, but I really like it. It feels very together and, we’ll, polished. The Lakur goes on easily and gives great coverage. I find it does chip somewhat easily, but it’s also easy to touch up. Overall, I’m very into my new nail color, and plan to rock it long after beach season has passed.

What’s your favorite greige?
