Play Matchy Matchy With Your Polish

Matching done right.

How I coordinate: J.Crew Chino Short, $42.50, jcrew.com; Essie Punchy Pink polish, $8, amazon.com

I had a phase in high school where I went overboard with color coordination, but ever since I’ve tried my best to dial it back. Of course, I do dabble with matching, like wearing a top that has the same colors in it as a skirt or grabbing a belt that is the same shade as my shoes. But that’s about as far as it goes. Until yesterday, that is. I went full-throttle coordinating — and found that I really loved it. As I was pulling on my brand-new hot pink J.Crew shorts, I realized they were the exact same shade as the Essie polish I was wearing on my hands and toes. It was a very happy accident, so I decided to rock the ensemble and enjoy the coincidence.

Would you have done the same or pulled a clothing switcheroo? Vote in out poll below and tell us what you think of your nails matching your outfit.
