over the taupe

DISCLAIMER: I feel like a serious fashion victim admitting to following a trend!
source: whowhatweardaily

After seeing WWWD's post on taupe nails, I decided to try it out. I typically go for dark colors -- think black, deep blues, and almost black purples. So even though it felt like I was stepping out of the box juuust a bit, it was still in line with my need to not clash with what I'm wearing. I tried on OPI's Over The Taupe, pictured below, and have surprisingly gotten a ton of compliments so far! For now, I'm happy with the change, but I'm not sure this is a trend I'll feel the need to repeat. What do you all think?

I love your blog!
Your nails look so chic, I want to try out the taupe nail trend as well, but I'm just afraid it will leave me looking washed out!

nail polish is always so dependent on a person's colouring, I feel, but taupe is a go-er for anyone with the right complexion. i like it.
personally i stick with matte nude: my fair skin and reddish hair make it the only real option for a problem-free polish to match anything.

i have been looking for the perfect shade of taupe and i have failed countless times. definitely writing that one down and looking for it today!

I actually had my nails that color a few months ago and loved it! It gives you a fresh feeling and look.
