The Chicest Way to Wear Gray: Gradient Nails

Gray is the ultimate neutral shade that adds sophistication and elegance to any look. And there's nothing quite as chic as a gradient manicure that fades from light to dark hues of gray. Here's how to achieve the look:

1. Start with a clean base
Wash and dry your hands thoroughly and then apply a base coat to your nails. This will help the gradient polish adhere to your nails smoothly and last longer.

2. Choose your shades
Choose at least three shades of gray nail polish in different shades that flow well together, typically a light shade, a medium shade, and a dark shade. Be sure to have a makeup sponge or a gradient sponge ready.

3. Create your gradient
Start with the lightest shade on the sponge and sponge it onto the top third of your nail. Then, add the medium shade to the sponge and sponge it onto the middle section of your nail. Finally, apply the darkest shade to the sponge and sponge it onto the bottom third of your nail. Repeat the gradient process by applying the polish to the sponge again and ensuring that the different shades are blended together.

4. Move on to the next nail
Repeat steps 2 and 3 on the rest of your nails, working one nail at a time.

5. Clean up
Use a brush dipped in nail polish remover to clean up any excess polish around your nails or cuticles.

6. Top it off
Finish your design with a topcoat to seal the gradient in place and add extra shine to your nails.

Voila! You now have a stunning gradient manicure that's perfect for any occasion. Gray gradient nails scream sophistication and style, making it the perfect choice for a winter wedding, business meeting, or just a casual outing with friends. So, what are you waiting for? Give it a try and watch your nails transform into a work of art.
