For Vena Cava's show on Saturday, she'll be using four different pebble-toned shades ranging from pale beige to brownish slate, which she custom-blended for the designer. The neutral polishes (which she showed us on a quick visit to the W offices) are exactly what we've been jonesing for after a summer of color overload. Here's hoping she decides to put the colors into permanent production. Fingers (and nails) crossed.
