10 Spring Nail Polish Combos That Take the Guesswork Out of Mani-Pedis

It’s hard enough choosing one color we like, let alone two that coordinate oh so perfectly. Which is why we’ve put together this handy guide ahead of your next mani pedi so you can go in prepared. Polish wall, we’re coming for you.

Here's the Real Reason Your Nails Are Always Chipping

caramel and coral polish

Caramel + Coral

Are nude and red your go-to colors? Give them a subtle upgrade with a creamy caramel and pop of coral instead.

Get the look: Veque in “Bare” ($18); Essie in “Peach Daquiri” ($9)

light blue and cobalt polish

Pale Blue + Cobalt Blue

The nail polish combo that never fails to put us in a calmer state? A dreamy blue on our tips and a vibrant blue on our toes.

Get the look: Olive and June in "Barrett" ($8); YSL in "Bleu Majorelle" ($28)

red and pink polish

Candy Red + Hot Pink

Fair-complexioned friends: Until you get your base tan, bold shades in warm hues will brighten up your skin.

Get the look: OPI in "Big Apple Red" ($13); Base Coat in “Treat Yo Self” ($18)

khaki and orange polish

Khaki + Burnt Orange

For medium to olive skin, a muted green and pop of orange are interchangeable and unexpectedly chic.

Get the look: Deborah Lippmann in "Lost in a Dream" ($20); Smith & Cult in “Tang Bang” ($18)

lavender and navy polish

Lavender + Navy Blue

And if you have a deeper skin tone, a soft lilac on your nails and a crisp dark blue on your toes will create the perfect contrast (both to each other and against your complexion).

mint and rose polish

Pale Green + Dusty Pink

The ultimate spring combo? A fresh minty green and rosy pink to anchor the look.
