Accessorizing your nails to your
outfit presents a chic modern day look. Whether you’re wearing an everyday
outfit or something extra special, applying an all over shade or practicing
your nail art can really help to bring your look alive. Here we share our top
tips for quick and exciting nails to really bring your fashion A-game.
To colour co-ordinate your nails
with your outfit then taking your nails a few shades lighter or darker than your
outfit can look very chic. If your outfit is made up of more than one colour
then choose a shade similar to one that you’re wearing. For instance, if you’re
wearing a fuchsia and grey outfit then opting for a coral or charcoal nail
polish shade will look stylish without clashing.
If you’re wearing a patterned or
printed outfit then pick a colour within the print or pattern and wear it on
your nails for a subtle pop of colour. You could wear matte, glossy or textured
polish, however if you want to be extra brave why not opt for a clashing
pattern for a kooky look.
If you consider co-ordinating
your nails to be the safe option then go for contrast. Contrast works best when
you are wearing a block colour. Using a colour wheel can help you choose a
contrasting shade, however opting for bright shades work well for contrast. For
instance, if you’re wearing a black dress then a neon pink can really dazzle.
Similarly, if you’re wearing a bright pink shade then opting for a black nail
polish provides an interesting contrast.
Think about the occasion
Choosing a nail shade can depend
on the event you’re attending. For example, if you’re attending a wedding then
a romantic pale pink or neutral nail polish looks elegant and sophisticated.
Similarly, if you’re going to a bar or club then you may want to opt for a
darker or brighter nail shade to compliment the atmosphere.
If you’re stuck, go for metallic
If you’re struggling to find a
nail shade to compliment your outfit then choose a metallic nail polish. Gold
is a shade that suits most outfits, so choosing gold glitter nails or gold foil
can look really stylish.
Metallics can compliment your
jewellery and footwear so don’t forget to consider your fashion accessories
when taking your nail polish into account. Remember that gold can also be worn
as a topcoat, such as the Konad gold
glitter top coat.
If you want to compliment your
outfit and explore nail art then opt for black and white shades. Polka dot
nails are a classic nail art design to attempt and can be simply created with a
A reverse ‘ruffian’ manicure with
black and gold shades is also super stylish and looks great with formal
Match your nail polish to your lipstick
An alternative to matching your
nail polish to your outfit is to match it to your lipstick instead. Matching
nails and lips used to be viewed as stale but it’s currently a trend to watch
out for with celebrities, such as Miley Cyrus and Rihanna sporting the look.
For a classic old school
Hollywood look then opt for red. A dark red nail polish, such as Russian
Roulette and lipstick can look incredibly beautiful, however avoid wearing
a similar shade to prevent clashing. You could try wearing jewel tones of red
or wearing matte red shades for a modern day look. You could also try wearing
slightly different shades of polish and lipstick to keep it slightly more
For a beautiful autumn or winter
look then try plum tones. Bold shades are always popular during the colder
months so wearing plum nail polish and lipstick is a great way to wear this
trend. Dark cherry and blackcurrant shades also look stunning. If you’re wary
of bold shades, try a wearing a sheerer bold lip and glossy nail polish
For spring and summer months,
choose a fuchsia lipstick and nail polish. Fuchsia is a fun and playful shade
so it’s perfect to wear during the warmer months. Hot pink shades are ideal for
festivals, holidays and other summer events. Avoid wearing full on pink if
you’re attempting to try this shade.
For a casual or low key look,
choose a baby pink or nude shade. Matching soft pink lips and nails are ideal
for laid back occasions, such as shopping or going for coffee. Nude shades are
massively popular at the moment thanks to the Kardashian sisters so matching
nude nail polish and lips are the perfect trend to try right now.
Think about your skin tone
Remember, if you’re considering
matching lips and tips to think about what works well with your skin tone. Generally
nudes, pastels and blue toned reds suit fair skins while darker skin tones suit
chocolate, wine and bold shades. However, if you want to experiment with colour
then you can as colour can help to demonstrate your personality and style.
