the new nails are stormy.

by faran krentcil

Outside, it seems the snow and ice will never end. Inside the nail salon, it's kind of the same thing.  For the past week, our friends, style icons, and NYLON editors have been rocking shades we like to call "stormy" - deep greens, blues, and grays that match the slush outside.

Eyeko's new "rain" polish mimics the hail on purpose, with a slogan that says "for city nails" and a color - blue grey with tiny flecks of silver - that mimics grimy skies and icy streets.

Dior's latest gray is equally thunderstruck, and Estee Lauder's Wind Storm looks like wet pavement on your nails.  Maybe if enough of us absorb the trend from the clouds, it'll clear the way for some sun?
