Spring Nail Tips: How To Coordinate Your Nails with Your Spring Outfits
Coordinating your accessories to your outfit has been a fashion trend for centuries, but have you ever considered coordinating your nails? As temperatures rise, we are no longer in need of coats, hoodies, and scarves and slip into our shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses. This is the perfect time to start coordinating your nail art to your outfit. Coordinating is a fashion trend that everyone can partake in. Here are some tips to help you pick the ideal nail polish for your outfit.
Keep It Safe – Basic Nail Polish Colors
Though coordinating is a trend anyone can get in on, it may not be for everyone. Keep it safe if you’re uncertain on how to coordinate to your outfit. I recommend sticking to the basic spring colors. White, nude, and light shades of pink are all neutral nail polish colors and can go with any outfit.
Match With Your Accessories
From necklaces and chains to purses and wallets, every great outfit is accompanied by accessories. When first beginning to coordinate your nails to your outfit it’s best to start matching your nail polish color with your accessories. Though matching your nails to the color of your outfit is a timeless trend, you might want to switch things up. Instead, try accessorizing with the color of your shoes and bag. Adding this little splash of color will complete your look and make your accessories POP!
What’s The Occasion?
When coordinating your nails to your outfit, always consider the occasion. Use different nail colors for different settings. For example, ruby red nails would look fantastic at a black-tie event but wouldn’t be your best choice for a Sunday brunch with the in-laws that is sure to be filled with pastels. Heading out to dinner or planning a night on the town? Black, gold, and red are the perfect shades for finishing off your look with a bold statement. On the other hand, neutral colors can also work well if your outfit contains lots of whites and tans.
Prints & Patterns
If you’re sporting patterns and prints try sticking with just one color when visiting your nail tech. I strongly suggest that you don’t recreate exact patterns from your clothes on your nails. Matching your nails with the exact print will clash and can look extremely cheesy. Not to mention, what do you do after you’ve worn that one pattern? It’d be really annoying to have to remove and reapply polish to match the exact pattern of every stitch of clothing you own. Accessorize by focusing on one solid color that is predominant within the pattern and match your nails to that color.
Coordinating your nails to your outfit is one of the easiest ways to show off your fashion sense and express yourself while adding the finishing touch to your appearance. By combining the two looks your nails can also express your personality. At the end of the day, have fun with it. Style and color your nails however you want. What’s important is that YOU like the result.
