Let’s talk about the perks of the gig. You know, the best part of getting a little dressed up. Personally, one area where I find myself splurging from time to time is getting myself to the nail salon to get a quick, super relaxed manicure and pedicure. But, with a wall full of Essie and OPI, what’s a girl to do? Enter, my favorite color combinations for year-round fun!
One consistency that you’ll notice is that I love to stick to matching shades, typically with a brighter shade for my toes, while my hands get a muter tone that’s more appropriate for business and daily wear. I also tend to stick to red tones when I’m thinking about year-round color. Yes, I’ll have a navy blue or teal party on my hands from time to time, but I typically focus on those as more seasonal options, rather than as something I’d wear everyday.

When I’m not really getting ready for a specific event, I love to stick to matching shades, typically with a brighter (neon?) shade for my toes, while my hands get a muter tone that’s more appropriate for business and daily wear.
