My Fascination with Gray

Once upon a time I considered gray as a color of mourning or formality, but now it has been properly labeled as the new BLACK!!! 
Even though it is a cool and conservative color, it still manages to add that pinch of pop to an outfit, stirring up a strong emotion of color in its own way.  Similar to black, a dark or charcoal gray conveys strength and mystery, except it does not portray the negative characteristics of black.
Mint Message:
Lighter grays are similar to white. All shades of gray can be good or neutral background colors. Use lighter grays instead of white and darker grays instead of black.
Wear light grays with various shades of pastel colors such as pink, blue, lavender, and green to add a touch of femininity. Also, add gray with hot pink in order to add a little flavor of retro style. You can even cool down a warm color palette by adding gray to rich reds or yellows.
You do not solely have to wear gray by means of your garments. On the contrary, you can wear the color on your finger nails in a charming manner.
Don’t believe me?  Well, while chatting with a co-worker during lunch, I noticed her nail polish almost immediately.  It was a lighter shade of gray by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Wet Cement.  She rocked it beautifully with mainly black articles of clothing and accessories.  She looked so ADORABLE!  Notice how very striking her gray nails look against the blue table...

I had to share a photo of her nails with you to advocate and inspire a new trend - that gray nails can be everything but BORING!!!
