Make a splash this summer with decadent mani/pedi combos sure to make sunshine days a little brighter!
1) Jewel Tones: Pastels are a huge draw during the spring/summer seasons; however, rich, jewel tones are a bit more sophisticated and unexpected – not to mention they (surprisingly!) pair beautifully with spring and summer ensembles. My favorites are Essie’s Turquoise and Caicos, and Thakoon for NARS’ Ratin Jot.
2) Nude + Bright: Bare nails can be boring; but a polish that looks barely there is an elegant way to lengthen fingers, and keep your look professional (important in office settings!). I like to counter it with a bright pedicure, which allows you to try two runway trends at once (nudes and neons). Deborah Lippmann’s Naked and Tom Ford Beauty’s Nail Lacquer in Coral Blame are my favorites. NOTE: If you have pale skin, look for a nude shade with pale pink undertones to avoid ‘mannequin hands’.
3) Mint + Metallic: Mint greens possess a very sweet vibe; whereas metallics add a futuristic touch. The reason I love pairing the two together, is because both colors make you look tanner (I’m pale, so I need this!). Metallics, especially silver, reflect light, enhancing your tan; while the pale blue/green undertones found in mint polish create the same effect. I like Deborah Lippmann’s Stardust, and Sally Hansen’s Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Mint Sorbet.
