Grey-Nail-Polish-Image.jpgEvery season, a selection of nail polish colors makes its way into the best, most popular, most used shades. And we’re counting them down for you this fall! Up this week: grey. Perpetually chic, perpetually cool, perpetually stunning. These are our top four picks.

NCLA Downtown Dollface
That perfect shade between dove grey and crisp white? You’re looking at it.
$16 at

Nails Inc. The Thames
A gorgeous shade of cement grey that just grabs everyone’s attention. We promise.
$9.50 at

Dior Gris Montaigne
Long one of our very favorite greys, this one is the absolute last word in charcoal.
$23 at

Maybelline Audacious Asphalt
What a great name! Luckily, the shade it produces—dove grey with undertones of lilac—makes for a winner.
$3.99 at
Essie-Beyond-Cozy.jpgWe love a good mix of gold and silver glitter … because, honestly, the more sparkle in our book, the better! So Essie Beyond Cozy is just pretty much perfect, because it’s—you guessed it—a gold and silver glittery hybrid!

This nail polish is one of our favorites in a long time. It applies like a dream in two coats, completely opaque and with only a subtly gritty texture that a layer of top coat instantly smooths out. And the sparkle? It’s unmatched! We love it equally in sunlight, in shade, in bright light, in dim rooms … we just can’t get enough.

Essie Beyond Cozy retails for $8 at
Deodorant might not be the beauty product everyone wants to talk about, but believe me it’s worth talking about. I was super-excited to find Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant! It’s not your typical powder fresh, shower fresh, chemical-ridden deodorant — it comes in great vanilla-based scents and contains no parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petro-chemicals or phthalates. For me this means it smells great, is perfectly safe and won’t cause any skin reactions. It’s a win on all counts.

You can get Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant for $18.00 at
CeraVe-Hydrating-Cleanser.jpgIf your skin is feeling drier than the Sahara, it’s time for a cleanser that will whip it back into shape. Enter CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser.

When we first started using this cleanser, our skin was in dire straits. It was dry, dehydrated, flaking in a million places … in layman’s terms, it was in really bad shape. So when our facialist recommended this cleanser to us, we were honestly willing to try anything to make the dryness disappear!

And disappear it did—in a matter of days, our skin was fresh, smooth and softer than a baby’s you know what. This cleanser really does restore moisture to the skin, making it look and feel its absolute best. Even if you’re flying a lot, not drinking enough water, whatever your deal may be … your skin doesn’t have to tell anyone anymore. Color us impressed.

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser retails for $13.49 at
