mani monday: perfect pairs

matching new nail colors with new summer sandals.

by ray siegel

As all of the new summer and resort nail colors started to trickle in, our first thought was how badly we need to get pedicures. Our second thought: we're going to need a whole new batch of open toe shoes this season. We chose eight of summer's best new polish colors from RGB Cosmetics, Essie, Illamasqua, Clinique, and Nails Inc.

Plus, eight summer pairs of shoes to match. Get a fresh pedicure and then get inspired by our perfect pairings.
