This mushroom-esque hue is instantly intriguing. The reason is simple: this unique and earthy tone is the perfect complement to spring’s biggest trends. After all, a neutral nail is the perfect partner to the season’s soft clothing colors—mid-blue hues, khaki galore, and even pretty pastels—all of which point to fashion’s warm-weather shift to a more grounded direction.
OPI’s “Over the Taupe”: I bought this sometime last year looking for a nice brownish grey nail polish. It didn’t suit my tastes. It looks very “fungal” on me. For those OPI enthusiasts familiar with signature shades, it is a mistier, less gray (Very brown in my opinion) variation of last year’s matte-nail, “You Don’t Know Jacques!”
Sephora by OPI’s “Metro Chic” – Dark Smoke with a hint of purple. This one is my favorite. This is an ideal nail color for someone who is not quite ready to say goodbye to gothic shades, but is still fearless enough to try cutting-edge color.

I try to get all of my OPI nail polishes from Salon Savings since they always have them for at least half the price.
