good vibrations

good vibrations

Have you ever tried to read a sign that hurt your eyes? I'm talking about bright lettering on top of a bright background. In the design world, that's called a vibrating color combination. The two bright hues interfere with each other, making it hard for your eyes to process the words and letters. It's not a good thing.

But in the whimsical world of nail polish, there shouldn't be rules. Especially not about vibrating colors. All three of these color combinations are considered vibrating colors on paper — but let's forget about that for now. How can you wear these colors together?
  • beginners: wear one color on your fingernails and the other on your toenails.
  • intermediate: choose one color for nine of your 10 fingernails. Paint one fingernail the contrasting color.
  • advanced: try using one color as a base coat and the other color as a polka-dot accent.
