Trend Alert: Gunmetal Nails

Here's a new twist on the metallic nail trend. Those who find black nail polish to be a touch too dark, red to be too bright, and yellow to be too over-the-top can find comfort in gunmetal gray. Gunmetal is a sleek, dark and sultry member of the silver family. Here are three bad-ass nail shades you'll be sure to love.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot from the Lippmann Collection ($15) was created with Pat Benetar! This is polish is a sexy and smoldering ultra dark gunmetal gray that will make you feel like a rock star. It has been formulated with biotin and green tea to nourish, strengthen and protect your nails and has a chip-resistant glossy finish.

For two more gorgeous gunmetal nail polishes,

Gunmetal Grey from Zoya ($6) is a deep steely, silvery metallic polish that looks glittery and sultry on nails. Caution, this color encourages all kinds of naughty behavior!

CND polish in Hyde in The Dark ($6) is part of the new Fall 2007 collection. This dark metallic grey polish lasts for up to ten days without chipping. The color is chic and it won't streak—an important thing if you're dealing with metallic lacquers.

I'm loving these new nail trends. I was so thrilled ten years ago when nail polish companies started realizing that women wanted to match their nails to their outfits a little better, and started coming out with colors that werent just red or pink hued. These gun metallics are SEXY!

Me likey! I love this as a neutral alternative to the burgundies and deep blues of previous seasons. I could go for certain chocolate shades too...
