Nowadays, it is becoming a trend for people to not only paint their fingers, but also polish their feet. Have you ever coated your feet with nail polish? Do you know the rules? Should we put the same color of varnish on feet and hands or mismatch? Follow us to find the answer!
What color combinations to achieve?
If you don’t want to choose the same nail polish on your hands and feet, you will have two options. The first is you have to stay in a fairly close range of colors. If the toenails are varnished with a coral color, for example, opt for a red-orange varnish, a slightly pastel mango or a color fairly close to orange for the nails of the hands. Thus, the key to a successful combination is to avoid wearing cold colors with warm colors.
The other possibility is to decide completely by radically changing the color palette on the hands and feet. The only shade that really stands out and goes with everything is white. For example, it can be worn with black for a very marked contrast, or with cooler colors such as pink or orange. The choice is yours!
How to apply it well on the hands and feet?
Now all you have to do is apply your nail polish, on your hands but also on your feet. Putting varnish on the toenails is done, ideally, only after having taken care to push back the cuticles and file your nails. This will allow the varnish to last longer. To prevent your nails from being too close together, you can use a foam toe separator. Apply a thin base coat, then two coats of colored varnish, and finally a coat of top coat.
As for the manicure, it is a question of reproducing somewhat the ritual carried out on the nails of the feet. Indeed, a beautiful application of varnish holds much better on clean and healthy nails. Once the nails are ready, you can move on to applying the base: its role is to allow the varnish to last longer, but also to prevent the nail from yellowing. After two thin coats of colored lacquer, a top coat is essential.
