Grey Matters

As much as I adore her fashion sense, it was Gwynnie’s choice of nail colour that landed her as today’s inspiration. Over the holidays I was out with some girls when one grabbed my hand and screamed “You Don’t Know Jacques”! She was, of course, referring to my fave polish-of-the-moment by OPI. Holding up her hand I saw that she too wore the mushroomy taupe shade. A couple of weeks later I came across this pic of Mrs. Martin sporting a very similar shade. I have since discovered that this picture was taken back in October at the London screening of Two Lovers (which somewhat burst my bubble that I may have somehow spawned the trend) but I dare say this is one that I’ll keep loving– at least while it’s cold out.
