Sequin Gray Fingernails

I just got inspired by a random Neiman Marcus ad that has helped me to find a new paint color for my nails and toenails this holiday- Sequin Gray!

I was getting a little bored with the Jolly old St. Nicholas red I have been wearing. So when I ran across this cutesy festive ad in my Elle magazine for Neiman's with a girl in a grey sequin top with matching nails, I thought, that's it!! Excuse the photo above I took- for some reason it turned out sideways and I didn't have the patience to figure out how to flip it;-)

I trolled out to Target for my weekly shopping trip, and ran across the perfect copycat gray color, by Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in color "gunmetal" ($3) which looks basically like the exact same color the girl is wearing in the ad! The Xtreme wear brand of polish is supposed to last up to 7 days because it's made with a "bioactive glass bond"-sounds tough enough to withstand the brutal work day I put in! I took a pic of this rock star color on my toes for you to see the actual look. I like the idea of sequin gray for nails for the holidays! It's a little bit of rock-n-roll but girly at the same time.
