InStyle provides an array of popular color schemes this year, each pair complimenting summer fashion. Take a look inside!
Nude and Neon
Nudes and neons are the biggest trends for summer and they were all over the runways," says manicurist Ashlie Johnson, who works with Liv Tyler, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristen Stewart. "I've been loving an opaque nude on the hands paired with an amazing fluorescent tone on the toes.
Not all of us are major risk-takers. "You can't go wrong with pastel nails and there's no precautions to follow," says Ji Baek, owner of Rescue Beauty Lounge in N.Y.C. One word of wisdom? "Cooler tones like greens and blues do look best on the feet while warmer tones like peach and pink work on hands."
"If you want to jump onto the color-blocking wagon but don't want to fully commit with new clothing or accessories, why not try it on your nails?" says Baek. She likes lemon yellow paired with vibrant coral or violet and deep navy.
"Pairing a full coverage, opaque shade with a silvery shimmer gives your look an overall edgy without going too far," says manicurist Jenna Hipp, who works with Michelle Williams, Zoe Saldana and Lea Michele, among others. "When worn together, these two shades have a vintage-y feel that's still somehow futuristic."
"Try a sheer, sandy hue on the hands and let the toes do all the talking with a deep, sea blue that has a hint of shimmer," says Hipp. "Both shades look best in direct sunlight, which is all the more reason to hit the beach."
