Revlon Gray Suede

This polish is one of my favorite nude shades from my stash... if not thee fav-o-rite. Simple and classy... this shade does exactly what you want a neutral polish to do... complete and compliment without competing. (Try saying that five times fast. Whew!)

Nude polishes are tricky. If you've ever been on the hunt for the perfect one, you know what I'm talking about. Too much yellow, not enough pink, too gray, not enough brown... I could go on and on, and those are just complaints I've had about some of the not-quite nudes in my collection.

Then I found this one.

Gray Suede from Revlon was honestly a one in a million find. Seriously. It's part of their core collection, and a pretty decent match to my skin tone, but not a complete match. The shade compliments my skin tone without looking harsh or garish. Gray is a bit of a misnomer, considering this is a warm, slightly pink leaning, taupe. I don't really feel like I can call it a french gray, because it's warmer than that. There's also a silver shimmer that's apparent in the bottle, but faint on the nails. It adds a little more shine, just enough that you don't need a layer of clear before you Seche Vite it.

As much as I love bold nail color, sometimes I like to step back and wear a neutral for a little while. It's a nice change of pace while I brainstorm new combinations. :)

Has Gray Suede found its way into your collection yet?
