Should you match your nail polish according to your outfit?
Well, this is a tricky question. Fashion, as I see it, is a personal thing, and there should never be a compulsion – to each its own.
However, nail paint does make a lot more difference than we think it does to the overall look of an outfit. Whether you choose to match it or not is completely on you.
There are a few ways in which you can ace your nails in any outfit-
- Match the nail paint with the outfit. Duh! While this may seem too much effort, matching your nails with the outfit you are wearing show that you have put enough thought to look presentable.
- Wear a contrasting color of nail paint that compliments your outfit. Not everyone knows about this, but it is a unique way of putting yourself out there as a fashionista! If you follow beauty influencers closely, you will notice many of them do this. This method helps to add a different pop of color to the look.
- When in confusion, your safest bet should always be nude colors. Nudes go with everything, so there is no way that it can backfire on you. Your nails will look elegant and beautiful.
- Look out for the accessory you are planning to wear and match your nails with it. It, too, is a less popular way of getting your nails in sync with your outfit. But it works wonders for any age group, especially if you are a teenager or in your 20’s. You can match your nails with your statement necklace or earring or even your bag or shoes. Just choose the one and play with the color.
