2. Black & Nude

As far as nail color ideas go, black and nude isn’t exactly the craziest thing we’ve ever seen. However, it is an absolute stunner, and we’ll never stop recommending it.

Get The Duo: Laven-Dare + Black To Black

3. Blue & Green

Blue and green look fabulous together — but only if they’re the right shades. And these two shades are definitely the right ones.

This color combo reminds us of an 80s windbreaker, and we really couldn’t ask for anything more special than that.
