Lounging languidly beside any pools this summer? Planning any barbecues at the beach? Don’t forget those all-important warm-weather essentials like your swimsuit, big floppy hat, sunscreen, cooler filled with drinks and snacks, and of course, your matching lips and tips.
Some among us may argue that those last two items aren’t summer fun essentials. Either way, I sure do love bright nails and lips this time of year, especially when they match!
Gotta get that quick burst of color from your fingers as you write your name in the sand, or blow kisses into your camera phone as you snap a quick selfie to send to your sweetie (“Wish you were here, boo!”).
I searched high and low for a few fun, affordable combinations to wear this summer and combed through countless contenders (a tough job, but someone had to do it) to come up with the following five trendsetting color combos.
You don’t have to pay Dolce & Gabbana prices to look fashionable and fab. These five lip and tip pairings are available now at Target stores and online at target.com.
Look 1: Fruit salad
This juicy combo with lime green nails and lush peach lips begs to be worn with umbrella drinks and on lazy days by the pool.
Look 2: Playful purple
Nothing says “fun in the sun” quite like shiny purple tips and shimmery violet lips.
Look 3: Think hot pink
Where my pink girls at? This pink pair balances hot pink fluorescent nails with just-kissed pink lips.
Look 4: Orange you glad?
Creamy orange nails and a coral lip!? I think this particular pairing looks ferociously fetching when worn with crisp, summery ivories and/or nautical navy blues.
Look 5: Yellow, it’s me
You could stop traffic with these show-stopping yellow nails and glossy strawberry lips. This combo always demands attention.
