Spring Nail Tips: How To Coordinate Your Nails with Your Spring Outfits
This is the year of nail glam. You have seen it in the blogs, on your favorite celebrity, and all over Instagram. Everyone is going above and beyond to make sure their nail game is on point. Here are a couple of key fashion tips when it comes to coordinating your nails with your outfit.
First, start with the basics. Everyone loves a good nude, pale pink, or white tip. If you’re trying to play it safe, these colors go with everything. Ombre’ with pink and white is very trendy this season and it will pair perfectly with your springtime floral prints. If you’re currently in the market for your floral fix, Scout & Molly’s Boutique of Easton carries a wide range of cute pieces from some of the most stylish brands.
The most important thing to remember when it comes to coordinating your nails to your outfit is to know that color blocking is key. For example, blue and yellow is a huge contrast, but when paired together – they complement each other tremendously. Think of these things when going to choose your nail color. Primary colors are red, green, and blue. All are pretty bold colors, so if you’re not into bold, try an accent nail with a lighter shade of one of the colors and work yourself up to it.
If you’re the type of person who loves a good print or pattern remember to keep it simple. Too many designs on your nails coupled with a printed shirt will have you looking gaudy and mix-matchy vs chic and stylish. Go for one color at a time, with no accent nail. This is also a good time to go with one of the nudes I mentioned above or a good nude ombre’.
Lastly, don’t forget your accessories matter too. You can easily match a colorful handbag or lipstick with your nail color in order to really make your outfit pop. A red nail and a red lip are not only a classic but a timeless combination. Pair your gold earrings with a good gold OPI nail color. Look up “Is This Star Taken?” and “Love, Angel, Music, Baby” OPI gold colors, I promise, you will not be disappointed. These would go perfect with a champagne shimmer shoe or clutch. You don’t have to go overboard. Even a periwinkle bracelet with a blue nail is a perfect small touch that a trained eye will gladly take note of.
