We don’t always love the matchy-matchy look (after all, colour-clashing is fun!) but for special occasions or big nights out, creating an entire matching outfit can make you look like a smooth and polished movie star. If you’ve got a big event coming up, check out our colour chart of perfectly matching lipsticks and nail polishes.
Going for that Hollywood bombshell look? A classic red looks awesome when matched on lips and nails, with the added benefit that it literally never goes out of style.
Berry shades are still going strong this season, despite normally being more of a winter style. SS16 catwalks saw pretty spring florals toughened up with berry-stained lips and dark talons; think blackberry-picking on a spring day… with a biker gang.
It’s spring so obviously you can’t go wrong with a good pastel. Baby pink is a fab shade because it looks pretty and understated on both lips and nails so you can wear it with anything.
Of course if you’re going to go pink, you can do it properly and go for the hottest pink around. Barbie never put a fashionable foot out of place, that’s all we’re saying.
If the sixties is your go-to decade for style inspo, chances are you love rocking a nude lip. Match them to nude nails for sophisticated and low-maintenance mod chic.
Your perfect match? For lighter skin tones: L.A. Matte Flat Finish Lip Gloss in Fantasy and Nails Inc Colville Mews Gel Effect nail polish.
For darker skin tones: Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Colour in Confident and OPI Barefoot in Barcelona.
Both matte nails and matte lips were everywhere on the Spring/Summer runways, so wearing them together can only double their cool.
