Fresh Paint: Nine Must-Have Neutral Nail Polishes

 Whether we're in the mood for a muted pink or a creamy yellow, this year's trends feature a slew of new and muted shades. So let's welcome them with flying colors—nine trendy neutral ones, to be exact.

Essie’s Nice Is Nice

1 / 8

Essie’s whimsical, light lavender shade reminds me of spring flowers and grape-flavored snow cones. ($3.95, Amazon.com)

American Apparel’s MacArthur Park

2 / 8

This opaque, buttery yellow adds a pop brightness that’s more golden afternoon than taxicab. ($6, AmericanApparel.com)

OPI’s You Don’t Know Jacques

3 / 8

The color of wet cement never looked so chic. This take on the greige trend has a subtle micro-glitter in it that somehow turns grayish brown into a hue to be reckoned with. ($8, Drugstore.com)

OPI’s It’s Totally Fort-Worth It

4 / 8

Part of OPI’s new Lone Star State–inspired line of shades, this lavender-gray puts a decidedly spring spin on the metallic trend. ($6.25, MBeautylounge.com)

OPI’s Suzi Loves Cowboys

5 / 8

The color of freshly melted s’mores chocolate, this warm, summery brown was all over the runways. The rich color oozes glam—whether you’re Vegas poolside or at the head of the conference table. ($5.85, Amazon.com)

OPI’s San Tan-Tonio

6 / 8

This honey-tan lacquer lends a light, summery warmth to a look—bold and fresh while still remaining neutral. ($5.70, Amazon.com)

RGB’s Camel

7 / 8

Take on warm weather’s nature-inspired vibe with a coat or two of Camel’s warm, nutty beige. It goes on light and sheer, lending a decidedly warm-weather feel to the neutral color. ($14, UrbanOutfitters.com)

RGB’s Haze

8 / 8

This polish is a milky, natural gray with undertones of smoky violet for just a hint of spring. ($14, Amazon.com)
