Get Michelle's Nail Polish Look

The nail polish that sparked an internet frenzy and an official statement from the White House.

We couldn't hit a DNC party this week without hearing a debate over a hot button topic: the chic gray-lilac nail color the First Lady wore to deliver her speech. 

California-based Artistic Nail Design has confirmed Mrs. Obama wore their Colour Gloss Soak-Off Gel in Vogue, a cement-shaded long-lasting high gloss that is cured under a LED light. The product is available only in nail salons, as it takes a pro to achieve the step-by-step process. While we're waiting for Charlotte salons to stock up - the shade is understandably backordered - we found similar shades civilians can get their hands on. 

Essie's Chinchilly, a sleek granite gray, $8
NARS' Storm Bird, a shark gray, $18
OPI's I Don't Give A Rotterdam, Holland collection, $8.50
Butter London's Dodgy Barnett, a gray-silver metallic, $14
