Here’s the thing about mani pedis: the polish color doesn’t have to match. We know it kind of goes without saying; after all, there’s tons of trendy nail art going around these days. But why not meet somewhere in the middle of a crazy design and a matchy-matchy mani pedi? Our chic summer solution: two shades of polish in slightly different colors. Better yet, we pulled a few of our fave party dresses of the season and the nail colors inspo to match. Graduation parties, weddings, vacations; wherever you’re headed, get ready to nail your look.
A fresh way to wear florals this season? With embroidery! Give a nod to the fresh blooms of the season with an embroidered floral cocktail dress that totally complements an outdoor wedding. Just swipe on pink and red polish to match the detailing, and you’re go to grow…er, go.
Truth be told, we never saw black and blue as a particularly attractive color combo…that is, until we paired it with this short lace dress! Match the vibrant shade of the dress with royal nails, and give it some edge with inky black toe polish. The best part of this frock? It’s super versatile, whether you dress it up with heels for a party or dress it down with chic sandals on a summer vacay.
Cue the 20’s vibes, because this sleek beaded dress makes us want to bust into the Charleston! Add some depth to the look with accent nails and toes (i.e. painting one the opposite color) in a mixture of grey and nude. Who’s about to be the chicest gal in the room? You.
Another way to switch up your florals? With an unexpected gold color palette! Catch the eye of everyone in the room in a strapless short dress with a pretty sheen finish. Bring out the glitter detailing with gilded polish neutralized with pearly white on the toes. Love it.
Hello, yellow! Exude sunshine in a yellow shift dress with 3-D florals that are basically an instant dose of happiness. Keep the good vibes coming with neon toes and a slightly softer nail shade. Then head to the nearest beach wedding, pronto.
