The Nail Lab ‘Matthew’ Lacquer, $15

Grey isn’t the easiest colour to wear – on your nails or in your wardrobe. It also has connotations of being drab, boring and down in the dumps, but ‘Matthew’ by The Nail Lab is anything but.

It’s The Nail Lab’s answer to all of life’s problems; it goes with everything, it complements pretty much every skin tone and goes-on completely opaque with a zero-shimmer finish after two coats.

And unlike some greys, it doesn’t discolour while you wear it. It’s vibrant, it looks clean, and it has just the right amount of white to make your nails ‘pop’. Basically, a quick coat of ‘Matthew’ makes you feel like you’ve got your life together. The end.
