YELLOW & GRAY
Just like the sun, just one look on Illuminating uplifts our spirit. The color stands out wherever it is, so it might look too strong to blend into your daily outfits, but worry not, it also works like a reflector to brighten your skin as well. A basic solid yellow nail like N Tropical will immediately bring vibrant accents to your total look. Calming grayish solid nails such as N misty is all that reminds us of Ultimate Gray’s feelings of composure. Multi-colored nail sets with yellow or gray such as N Dumbo or N Wendy is another way to add the hues to your style.
If Your color of the day is Illuminating
What if you’ve chosen Illuminating as your main styling concept for the day? If the most dominant shade of your outfit - outers like jackets, or items close to your face like shirts or oversized scarfs - is a vivid one, the classic trick is to balance it with toned-down, muted color. Brown syrup based nail sets like N Brown Terrazo, or coral ombre nail like N pm 6:00 will go together with Illuminating beautifully while highlighting your main concept. If you feel like adding some fun to your style, then we are in no short of vibrant matches as well. Complementary color matches have power to gather all eyes at once, and N Polaris pure navy solid with reverse french glitter will complete the dramatic contrast like illuminating day and night sky.
