Splurge or Save: Nail enamels

Grey nail enamel has been spotted across various beauty brands' fall offerings. From pearl and oyster to ash and charcoal, this muted shade is surprisingly wearable and elegant.

CHANEL LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR IN 631 ORAGE (Photo 1)

$38, from Chanel counters

Review: Apply two thin coats for a super glossy bold charcoal-grey shade. This is the perfect complement for striking nail art.

YVES SAINT LAURENT LA LAQUE COUTURE GRAINED LEATHER EFFECT IN NO. 53

$37, from YSL Beaute counters

Review: This taupe polish contains fine granules for a grainy effect and a luxe feel. Apply at least three thin layers for the rich colours to come through.

I also liked the flat and wide brush, which made applying it a breeze.

LUNASOL NAIL FINISH N

$23.50, from Lunasol counters

Review: Apply two coats of this dove grey polish for the colour to appear opaque and glossy on the nail. Although the polish is grey, it has light blue undertones, which makes it sophisticated and appropriate for an office environment.
