To take your style game up a notch, match your nails to at least one element of your entire look. Simply identify one key fashion accessory such as the bag, belt, scarf or shoes and match it to your nail colour. It’s cool to match your tangerine orange nail paint to a smart orange crossbody or a pair of orange strappy sandals.
Avoid matching your outfits and your accessories to the colours of your nails. That’s an overkill. Also, one is more prone to making mistakes matching vibrant nails to outfits rather than to accessories. So, stick to either neutral or pastel outfits as those are a perfect contrast to vibrant nails and accessories.
One of the easiest hacks to look put-together, is to just match both your lip colour to your nail colour. But for those of you who like to match your lips to your outfits, here is a tip: If wearing red, pink, orange or brown solid-coloured outfits, it’s more flattering to pick a lipstick that’s either one shade lighter or one shade darker than your outfit colour. By doing so, you not only stay within the same colour shade family as that of the outfit, but you have the freedom to move between darker or lighter versions.
But when matching lipsticks to printed outfits, one can simply identify one flattering lippie shade from your outfit and use it as the guide for picking your lipstick. In this case, your lipstick can reflect the exact same shade as in the print of the fabric.
