Summer calls for a trusty SPF, your favorite shades and biweekly pedicures to keep your feet in tip-top shape. Selecting the perfect pedi color can be difficult, and, for most polish aficionados, matching your tips to your toes can feel a bit…passé. Before you visit the salon, check out our top mani/pedi combos for every skin tone. 

For fair and light skin tones, stick to shades that won’t compete with your complexion, especially if your skin has more red undertones. Blue-based pinks and bright teal hues evoke a fun and flirty vibe, while deep navy blue and silver glitter is perfect for more formal occasions.

For medium complexions, stick with shades that highlight your summer glow, such as bronze, red-orange and dusty lilac. When it comes to flesh-tone hues, opt for warm-tone neutrals instead of pink-based nudes, in order to match your skin’s yellow or olive undertones.

Both pastel and neon shades pop against darker skin. Try to avoid cool gray-based tones, which may look dull upon darker complexions. Don’t be afraid to pair colors from different categories (i.e. neon with pastel) for a bold and playful look.
