What has the versatility of a nude polish but is slightly less expected? That would be gray, friends. Get ready to see lots more of it this year, as we’re predicting that it will be the color on everyone’s tips in 2019. 

So much so that Essie’s latest collection features nine neutrals, six of which are various shades of gray. (Our favorite is “Press Pause,” a dove gray hue with a cloudy blue tint that makes us feel more zen every time we wear it.)

Whether you swipe a metallic charcoal or a lavender-tinted tone, this cool hue goes with every outfit and mood. Can’t decide which color to get? (Always.) You can always rock it wabi sabi style and wear a different one on every finger like nail artist Betina Goldstein did above.

Get the look: Zoya "Carey" ($9); OPI "Taupe-less Beach" ($11); Sundays "No. 31" ($18); JinSoon "Mica" ($18); Marc Jacobs Beauty "Delphine" ($18)
