I rarely bother with painted nails* because they last three days, tops and I've always had a hard time finding colors that I like. For some reason all the various greys that are out right now just feel much more me than anything I've found in the past. It's enough to have me contemplating a gel manicure just so I could enjoy the effect a little longer.
*Toes, however, are always painted and always in some variation on red. Not sure I'll ever branch out there.
