I've always liked taupe makeup because it's a color with a little bit of everything. Sometimes it takes on silver qualities, while other times it looks a little gold. From a tone perspective, it's got brown, gray, and sometimes even purple essences. We've seen stars rocking a metallic-taupe nail throughout the warmer-weathered months, and I'm sure we'll be seeing a less blinged-out version of the shade now that a change of season is looming. Take Gwyneth Paltrow, for instance. At the Adolfo Dominguez 2010 Spring/Summer show in Spain, the actress wore this lovely super-wearable, soft raisin-toned color on her nails. I love me some sparkle, but after seeing Gwyneth wearing this matte version, I'm ready to make the seasonal switch myself. To get a similar look, try Essie Mink Muffs ($8), Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in On Stage ($9), or Butter London's Tramp Stamp or Fash Pack ($14 each).
