Is Megan Fox Keeping Grey Nails Alive?

By on September 12, 2009
in Celebrity, Gray

Exciting news on the gray nail front! Megan Fox is donning the shade on the cover of October’s Cosmo proving that gray is still having a moment. Some may say it’s “so last season” but didn’t they do that with Chanel Black Satin only months after its release? Well I’m not ready to give up on gray and I’m happy to see it popping up on celebs and magazine covers.

Green Celebrity Manicurist Jenna Hipp
(@JennaHipp on Twitter) did Megan’s nails using Orly Mirror Mirror, a light cement gray creme.

So what’s your take Fanatics? Are you beyond over gray? Still on the bandwagon? Or could you care less because you weren’t buying what gray was selling in the first place?

    i was super excited when i read this post, but only because i didn't know the new cosmo was out.

  2. Kim says:

    Wow she could wear just about any nail polish color and look good!
    I'm still looking for a good gray so I haven't given up on it. :) Does gray nail polish even have a season?

  3. Daedre says:

    I will always be a gray lover! It fits a certain kind of mood. I live in a small town and so many people comment on my grey nails~like it never occured to them to find/use a grey polish. :)

  4. Beauty Bitch says:

    I love grey, especially combined with pale pink which is such a chic colour combination. So many of the popular shades at the moment (SOPI Metro Chic, OPI Run with it etc) have grey undertone to them that I think it's ample evidence that greys and greytone shades have become new classics in nail varnish shades.

    Gray is huge for clothing shoes and bags this fall. I don't see why it's "out" for nails. I still love it and I'm wearing it. So there….LOL

  6. Aurora says:

    Gray is DEFINITELY not done! I hope more come out this fall/winter!

  7. Dee says:

    I like gray and will still wear it. I really don't care what Megan Fox wears, or what is on the cover of Cosmopolitan. I'll also wear whatever other color I want to wear, whether or not it is in a magazine I never read anyway, or on some starlet whose movies I never watch.

  8. cidell says:

    I still love grey! People at work poo poo it, but I don't care!

  9. Rebecca says:

    I just bought two greys, one of which is the YSL. I am currently having a love affair with the colour. Nails, jeans, shoes…

  10. Concertina says:

    I am totally still on the bandwagon…actually, I just hopped on it. I think the gray polishes I've seen are stunning! It's odd…and subtle…and very elegant.

    Grey nails? Love! On Megan Fox? Not so much. Seeing her wear it makes me want to wear it a little less.

  12. Carrie says:

    I LOVE gray! In fact, I'm still looking for the perfect charcoal dark gray creme. I used to have a Revlon one (I think it was called Smokestack), but I haven't found anything to replace it. I don't really dig on the light gray, but that's just me.

  13. Vesper says:

    I love grey! Pfff, don't care if it's "so last season." I actually think it works well year round. And I love the way it's paired with that baby pink dress on the Cosmo cover.

    I love grey! I'm not giving up on it anytime soon. You can shade it to suit both Winter and Spring, and with the cooler temps right around the corner, I'm looking forward to the darker shades of it, like RBL's Stormy. As soon as the holidays are here, you'd better believe I'm shaking up my OPI's Brand New Skates and Sheer Your Toys! Who says that grey is "so last season?" Bring them to me!!

  16. markjoy says:

    In my opinion, those who say anything is "so last season" can suck it. Who made them fashion royalty? Not me… (Wearing Zoya Ki)

  17. Tavia says:

    I like Megan Fox, she is usually wearing her nails in dark nail polish

  18. Anonymous says:

    I really like it, pink is too girly, & while she could also wear a vampie, gray has the right kind of edge.

    I just wish I could find one that works for my skin tone (they tend to be too cool toned, any recs for a deep warm charcoal cream that is recognizably gray, not black??)

  19. Duffi McDermott says:

    I love grey np, though I rarely wear it. "So last season?" Please. Grey is huge for fall, as one of the anonymae said. Wear what you want when you want it; that's my mantra!

  20. Anonymous says:

    I'm still all about the grey. OPI Brand New Skates is my fave go to grey!

  21. KatJobson says:

    I love grays, one of my favs is Zoya's Harley which is light, almost a neutral, love it on. You should swatch some of your favorite grays or any new grays that are out. Hope you had a blast at Fashion Week.

  22. mrslele says:

    I have been wearing SOPI Under My Trench Coat, and get nothing but compliments on it. Grey is really just hitting the mainstream. I also wore Black Satin before everyone else…Some people just take longer to catch on.

  23. HeidiG says:

    I am loving Essie's Chinchilly for a medium gray this fall. Love love love! I also have/love OPI's Suzi Skis the Pyrenees, which is great for a super-dark charcoal. But I really want to try the YSL tuxedo gray – it looks like it's right in the middle of the two.

  24. Doug says:

    Well, I'm a guy and I have always thought gray worked for men (as does black). I wear it on my toes, not fingers though.

    It probably looks better on Megan though…(come to think of it, anything looks better on Megan!)

  25. Mui says:

    I absolutely love grey/gray nail polish, and I don't believe theres a "correct" season to wear it! :D

    I know I wore my grey nail polish through out summer, and I'm planning to wear it all year round!


  26. Bella says:

    I just jumped on the bandwagon and I love the grey's like sopi metro chic, opi YDKJ. I'm usually late on the band wagon because I purchase on my terms. I am a rebel like that ;)

  27. Navare says:

    I tried not to jump on this trend, but it's been around for a year, and I'm still a grey fanatic, so I bought YSL's grey nail polish last month.

  28. love says:

    Pretty that was beautiful.

  29. Allison M. says:

    I really like grey and will still wear it. I'm a fan of you don't know jacques or something like that from OPI

    CG's Recycle continues to be in heavy rotation for me, I couldn't care less about "trends" anyway.

  31. Lauren says:

    I didn't think I would like the gray nail trend, but then I picked up OPI's Brand New Skates and fell in love: fabulous color and endless compliments! I can't wait for the weather to cool so I can wear it "season appropriately."

  32. Mimi says:

    SOPI Run with it and OPI Brand new skates probably my 2 all time favorites. I'll never give up on grey!

  33. Anonymous says:

    My first grey and still my fave, MAC's On the Prowl. Something being "out of style" never bothers me. I wear whatever color matches my mood at the time.

  34. Anonymous says:

    I can't wait for it to officially be fall so that I can break out my China Glaze Recycle!

  35. Rilana says:

    I loved BarryM's grey, but recently received Storm from Sleek and that one is definitily my new love.

  36. Anonymous says:

    I love love love grey nails. I don't care if they're in fashion either. I'm too cheap to buy grey polish, so I mix my black with a white (the amount of white changes on the weather) and while that probably isn't the best thing to do, it's fun having a range.

    In fact, my nails are grey now (:

  37. Leslie says:

    Revlon recently released a pretty dark gray called :stormy

    I found it at Target, and its def gray but too dark for me, I went and got Essie Chinchilly:)
