You know when you see an impeccably dressed woman and her manicure just goes with her incredibly chic ensemble, as if any other nail color choice would have been just ridiculous? Okay, maybe you don’t notice these sorts of things as readily as we do—but trust us when we say a manicure can make your outfit. To prove our assertion, we put together 8 dress-and-polish pairs. Keep reading to experience the manicure magic we’re referring to!
Black And White Dress + Red Nails
Black, white, and red—nothing beats this classic combo. Dior’s Colour Icons Vernis Gel Shine And Long Wear Nail Lacquer ($25) in Tout Paris is the perfect hue to wear with a black and white ensemble.

Mustard Yellow Dress + Orange Nails
Mustard yellow is not only an seriously tough color to wear, but also a challenging one to (beauty) accessorize. Stick with a warm nail color, but make it bright for a bit of contrast. Try an orange polish, like Orly’s Nail Lacquer ($8) in Melt My Popsicle.
