I have always been the same color on finger and toenails kind of girl, but all these mani-pedi color pairings have me intrigued. It’s sort of fancy to see one hue on the fingers and another on the toes, so I may be a convert before the summer is out. The trick to rocking the trend is to choose colors that coordinate, even if they don’t necessarily match. That way, you look pulled together without having to be matchy. Check out these mani-pedi color pairings to see what I mean.
1 Hidden Glamour
If you’re looking for mani-pedi color pairings that you can wear to work or to an understated affair, consider a nude color on your fingernails and a deep burgundy red on your toes. You can keep the toe color covered if necessary while still looking appropriate for the office. But you can let that color show when you head out on the town for a night of fun.
2 Pinks and More Pinks
If pink is your hue, try two different shades on your toes and fingers. Go for the lighter color on your fingernails and the darker one on your toenails. You can rock pink nails, even in two different colors, with virtually anything in your wardrobe so you can’t go wrong with that. You can mix and match pinks and choose any two shades you like as they long as they complement each other.
3 Earth Tones
Brown and red isn’t a color combination I would normally gravitate toward, but it looks great for a mani-pedi. Use a dark brown color on your fingers and a bright red for your toes. It might not be something you’ve seen before, but I promise you will love the way it looks when it’s finished.
4 A Dash of Blue
Turquoise is my favorite color, but I have a hard time liking the way it looks on my nails. By using it as part of a mani-pedi pairing, I can enjoy it without going all out. Put a bright ocean colored shade of turquoise on your toenails so you can keep them under wraps if you need to. Then, slick on a couple coats of beige on your fingernails and you’re good to go.
5 Back to Nature
With the huge nail art and fancy nail polish trend that’s sweeping the nation right now, you can count on getting lots of compliments for trying something different. That’s what I love about this pairing. Use a sage green color on your fingernails, which is a shade that looks great with most skin tones. Put white on your toenails to round out the look.
I call this combination metallic, but not because either of the shades is actually metal colored, but more because that’s what description comes to mind when I see the two next to each other. If you love deep, rich shades, this is the look for you. Go with a dark purple on your fingernails, then put a brownish-gray color on your toes.
7 Tropical Paradise
If you really want to go all out and can get away with bright shades where you work, you’re going to love this tropical blend of bright colors. Start with a sunshine yellow color on your fingernails, then put turquoise on your toenails. You’ll feel like you’re at the beach, even if you’re not.
