Gwyneth PaltrowGray polish
Are you sick of black nail polish yet? Personally, I love it for the first day or two but as soon as it start to get dull and chipped I’m over it – and it’s SO hard and messy to get it off. Why not lighten up a bit and give grey a try? (Gwyneth Paltrow has been seen sporting it.) One to try: Concrete Jungle by Rescue Beauty Lounge. $18, rescuebeauty.com

Bold color for nails and eyes
Get a head start on Spring by trading your muted or neutral shades for something a little more bold. The Spring runways were all about bright pops of color on the eyes and hands. Nothing brightens a gray winter day like a shot of color.

Kirsten DunstMessy hair
Now this is one trend we’d like to see stick around. Sure it may take a professional stylist upwards of an hour to give you that perfectly mussed look, but we say it’s as easy as not washing your hair for a day or two, using Klorane Dry Shampoo to add texture (Heidi Klum and Kirstin Dunst do) and pinning it back one piece at a time before gathering it all together in an imperfect bun. The beauty of this trend is, you can’t do it wrong!

    black nail polish isn’t messy to get off if you put it on right. if put a clear undercoat on it stops it from staining your nails and i found that applying and re-applying a clear top coat keeps the polish looking shiny and not “dull” as you say here.

    not sure if i like the grey nail polish idea, but im all about the messy hair – more people should look more disheveled!

    Love all three! The just-got-out-of-bed-after-a-hot-round-of-sex look is totally sexy, and I must say that I don’t hate the idea of gray nail polish. And I ALWAYS love bright colors, regardless of the season!
