We love the edgy-meets-sophisticated vibe of a gray mani and Essie’s offerings for fall 2013 add new life to the look. The NYC-inspired range boasts not one but three new takes on the neutral: For The Twill of It; a holographic olive-gray (a big trend this season), Cashmere Bathrobe; a true flannel gray, and Vested Interest; a gray-teal shade. Wear these polishes with fall’s modern, menswear-inspired separates and finish the outfit with matte red lipstick and a great pair of ankle boots. Want to go even darker? There’s also a preppy, dark navy in the range that’s begging to be worn with an LBD.
