Playing with Complimentary Nail Colors


So today i decided it would be fun to create a nail look simply by playing with complimentary colors.   I'm using Julep's Lucy (a deep wine) and Diane (a deep forest green).  I thought it'd be fun to paint my nails using Lucy and my pointer using Diane.  Then i applied a stripe of Diane on all the nails painted in Lucy for a bit of interest and dimension.  I reversed the process for the pointer finger just for fun.  The cool thing about this look is that because the colors are so complimentary of each other, they kind of blend a bit. From a distance, you wouldn't know i mixed two colors.  However, if you look closer, you can totally see the fun I've had with these two complimentary shades.  I love the idea that you can rock this look anywhere... even if you have a formal or more conservative event to attend, you could totally get away with this look.  I will say this is equivalent to the mullet in the 80's... you know, business in the front, party in the back!  Except cuter... i mean, who the heck wants to rock a mullet these days right?





So lets chat! What are some of your favorite complimentary color nail polish looks?   Thank you SO MUCH for reading! XOXO Carla - FMM
