I like to match my polish to my fingers and toes, especially if I am wearing a white polish but usually if I am wearing a specific colour on my fingers, I will make my toes different so it's not so matchy matchy. Although, If I am wearing a light coloured pink on my fingers, then I will go with a dark pink for my toes. I also like to wear two colours that are totally different but also having those two colours compliment each other. 

Whether you are matching your mani's and pedi's or not, it's important that the two colours you choose still compliment each other and look good side by side. I love to wear bright colours on my fingers in the summer but sometimes I will wear more of a neutral colour as you don't see the chips as easily. When it comes to the toes, I will always wear a bright or darker colour.

Here are some of my favorite polish combinations!
The left side is Mani's and the right side is Pedi's:

The first combination is Essie's Full Steam Ahead and Dj Play That Song. Like I mentioned above, I like to wear the same colour but in different tones. These two shades are so pretty together.

The second combination is Essie's Ballet Slippers and Bounce It's Me. This is such a classy combination and I love these two colours together. It's great for any occasion.

The third combination is Essie's Canyon Coral and Naughty Nautical. I really love coral and teal together and the two colours compliment each other really well. Think the beach :)

The fourth combination is Essie's Red Nouveau and Bottle Service. Red fingernails and hot pink toes or vice versa are one of my favorite colour combinations. It's so feminine. 

The fifth combination is Essie's Mint Candy Apple and Blanc. These two colours are gorgeous together and it's a very clean, polished look. I switch these two colours up as well. I will wear white on the fingers and mint on my toes etc. Let's not forget, white goes with any colour. Lately I have been obsessed with white polish and have been pairing it with a lot of different colours.

If you are still unsure on what shades and tones compliment each other, then think colour wheel:

What are your favorite polish combinations that you tend to pair together? Do tell!

Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by, xo!!

  6. I love these combos! I always try to make my fingers and toes look good together, but I can't do matchy matchy for the most part. I love red and pink together. Love the light purple and darker purple and the coral and turquoise!
