10 Summer Nail Polish Color Combos That Always Look Great Together

Keep in mind at your next mani-pedi

Salon indecisiveness is real, people. And it’s amplified tenfold when you’re faced with a new decision in summer months: What’s going to work on both my hands and feet? Do they have to be the same color? Are they going to clash? Does it even matter, really? Well, we think it does, which is why we’ve picked the ten best combinations for fingers and toes. Paint away.


Ballet Pink + Cherry Red

Bright red gets toes ready for summer sandals, but keep things breezy on hands with a pastel pink.

Get the look: Essie Muchi, Muchi and Really Red ($9 each)


Dusty Rose + Magenta

Is your go-to more of a berry hue? Mix things up this season by pairing a grayish pink with a bright fuchsia. 

Get the look: Sally Hansen Pink Pong ($7) and Orchid Me Not ($6)


Muted Beige + Orangey Coral

Oooh, this pair definitely screams poolside lounging in Cabo.

Get the look: Butter London Tea Time and Jolly Good ($18 each)


Shimmery Copper + Tangerine

A muted metallic is just enough oomph for fingers when paired with a pop of Creamsicle orange on toes. 

Get the look: Ciaté Skinny Dip and Mango Martini ($13 each)


Light Peach + Cappuccino

Sorta like ombré, but more sophisticated. Go for a lighter shade on top and darker hue down below.

Get the look: Formula X Invincible and Brain Power ($11 each)


Stark White + Shimmery Bronze

The ultimate “look-tanner-without-stepping-foot-outside” combo.

Get the look: Côte No. 2 and No. 96 ($18 each)


Rich Taupe + Deep Navy

Sand up top, ocean down below. You are officially beach ready. 

Get the look: Smith & Cult Honey Hush and Kings & Thieves ($18 each)


Mint Green + Slate Gray

Into cooler colors in general? Try a seafoam mani anchored by a dovetail pedi.

Get the look: Nails Inc. Crescent Gardens and Gloucester Square ($14 each)


Soft Lavender + Inky Teal

Adventure is calling. Answer it with an icy lilac mani and rich jade pedi. 

Get the look: Zoya Kendal and Frida ($10 each)


Powder Blue + Hot Pink

This wildcard combo is kinda like cotton candy. (Just don’t try and eat your fingers, please.)

Get the look: Deborah Lippmann Blue Orchid and We Are Young ($18 each)
