Tried Collonade grey-too beige under my led lights. Tried Dolphin too blue and looks too much like prison grey.Any others to try?
BM Color Stories Capuccino Froth dulce de leche or Plaster of Paris are light pretty full spectrum ones.
These are light. They have quite a few neutral grays.

On my monitor cappucino froth looks pink.
BM Tinsmith is a true grey. We tried many, many gray paints before we found it. It was the only one w/o undertones.
We used SW Unusual Gray.
SW Gray Clouds
Mythic Strictly Silver.
Gray is one of the hardest colors to choose, in my opinion--we went through about a dozen samples for our kitchen cabinets and are now nearing that number for our bathroom walls! Which grays have undertones (and what they are) depends a lot on your space and your lighting--there are really no "true" grays that will read exactly the same in every room, sadly.
Some that I like, though:
- BM Sea Haze (what we chose for our cabinets--this has green undertones but worked for us in a space where blue and beige undertones looked awful)
- BM Gray Owl, one color down on the same swatch, also a neutral green gray
- BM Pashmina--more of a greige but a nice brownish warm gray; again, might work if blue grays aren't cutting it
- BM Fieldstone if a darker gray works
Some to skip:
- BM Revere Pewter and Gray Horse both read blue in our house though they are lovely if that's not an issue (and again, YMMV)
Are you going for light or dark? Do you want a particular undertone?
We also went through many iterations of greys. We like Pewter (not Revere Pewter) for a dark grey and Cliffside Gray for a light one. Cliffside reads either blue or green depending on context and time of day. I love it.
I couldnÃ¢ÂÂt pull off white so I went with BMÃ¢ÂÂs Cumulus Cloud 1550 and painted my oak cabinets gray. Thunderstorm is also a popular BM gray but it has a slight green tint (IMO). Below are the pictures. They arenÃ¢ÂÂt the greatest since I donÃ¢ÂÂt have a fancy camera.

We used sw Agreeable gray.
Thanks for all the responses guess I need to hit BM and Sw tomorrow. I do think its my leds. It seems to pull more beige out of the greige that I'm looking for.
We used BM Platinum Gray
I used BM Pashmina (greige) in dining and kitchen with BM Wish (light grey) in the entry hall.
Sorry, I got the name wrong. It was supposed to be Dulce de Leche. It's pale and on the warm side. Plaster of Paris is also a light gray that's pretty and neutral. I looked at them earlier today and they have quite a few grays that appear very neutral and many that are darker, if that's what you need.
We used SW Silverpointe after painting about a dozen samples on the wall. In my kitchen it looked like a true light gray without strong blue or beige tones. As a bonus, it is currently sale time at SW! I know that greys vary so much room to room, but here is a pic anyway.
