My New Favorite Nail Polish

Do you have any idea how hard it is to find dove-gray nail polish? Well, I do, so trust me-it’s more elusive than the chupacabra. I’ve been looking for over two years, coming across shimmery silvers and grumpy charcoals, but not a single matte dove gray.

Allow me to explain my fervor. I’ve decided that dove gray is the perfect year-round nail color because, first, it’s gray and therefore works in fall and winter, and second, it’s pale and therefore works in spring and summer. (Genius, right?) But more importantly, it’s one of my favorite colors. For me, looking for dove-gray polish and finding only metallic and dark grays is like looking for a dove-gray sweater and being confronted with a sea of heathers: devastating.

Lo and behold, last month, I finally found a perfect-perfect-dove gray polish: a shade called Billy No Mates by super-hip butter LONDON. And as if the discovery alone wasn’t awesome enough, it turns out that Billy No Mates is one of colors in butter LONDON’s 3 Free Nail Lacquer collection. That means it’s free of the controversial, potentially harmful ingredients found in lots of other polishes: formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. Yay!

I have every intention of buying their entire inventory of Billy No Mates, so as long as you buy one of their 43 other shades, it won’t have to come to manicured fisticuffs.
