There is a time and a place for festive metallic tips and teal toenails (like right before your next beachside vacay perhaps). But if you work in a conservative office (or just prefer a more subtle look), here are six classic mani-pedi combos that you can always count on.

DEB LIPPMANN 2
Deborah Lippmann

Ballet Pink + Coral

Let's start with perhaps the most classic pairing: sheer pink and red. If the cherry red feels too feisty for the office, soften things up and opt for a creamy coral instead.

Get the look: Deborah Lippmann Before He Cheats ($18) and Girls Just Want to Have Fun ($18)

ESSIE COMBO
Essie

Cherry Red + Burgundy

You could also darken your whole motif, i.e., rock a tonal look, using two variations of the crimson shade.

Get the look: Essie Jelly Apple ($9) and Bordeaux ($9)

RGB COMBO
RGB Cosmetics

Beige + Soft Taupe

Another tonal combo that always looks sharp is beige and taupe. Swipe the warmer shade on your fingers to brighten them up and the cooler one on your toes so they really pop (through your cute summer sandals on casual Friday).

COTE COMBO
Cote

Beige + Navy

A perfect match. Just like the warm summer sand and the deep blue ocean—that you dream of during conference calls.

Get the look: Cote No. 12 ($18) and No. 77 ($18)

DIOR COMBO
Sephora

Dusty Pink + Raspberry

Prefer pinks? A muted rose and bright berry balance each other out nicely. 

Get the look: Dior Incognito ($27) and Cosmopolite ($27)

JIN SOON COMBO
Jin Soon

Dusty Pink + Dove Gray

Keeping with the muted theme, a pairing of tea-rose pink and dusty grey is pretty without coming across as too precious. 

Get the look: Jin Soon Moxie ($18) and Grace ($18)
