Spring 2021 Nail Colors: 7 Picture-Perfect Color Combos

The Everygirl’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. We only recommend products we genuinely love.





In my life, I historically panic-choose two things: my meals at a restaurant and my nail polish. I can spend any amount of minutes scouring my choices, and without fail, at the very last second, I choose the option I didn’t really want and that I regret immediately. And if you add in the caveat of needing to choose a shade for my fingers and toes? I don’t stand a chance.

Sure, you can always go matchy-matchy with your mani-pedi, but sometimes, two different but complementary colors are much more fun. And lucky for us, it’s almost sandal season, so our toes are about to be out and provide the potential for another color to be on display. Looking to start your spring mani/pedi game on the right foot? Try one of these no-fail color combos:

 

1. Sky blue and pale pink

 





Nothing says “warm weather” like pastel colors, and this power duo is as dreamy as they come. Opt for a shade of blue with purple undertones to avoid looking like you’re just preparing to go to a gender reveal.

2. Bubblegum pink and mint green





Celebrate two of this season’s hottest colors by pairing them together for an unstoppable mani-pedi duo. Bubblegum pink is a perfect pop for your toes, and mint green is a perfect venture from a nude mani for something a little more seasonally appropriate.

3. Marigold and hot pink





Partial to bright colors for your nails? Make a statement with eye-catching marigold, one of 2021’s hottest hues, and pair it up with a classic hot pink for a summery combo that’ll make you never turn back to your white mani again.

4. Grey and lilac





We can’t get enough of the sweet lilac shades of this spring, and in our humble opinion, it’s one of the best nail shades of the year. If you want something understated, a muted lilac paired with a cool grey is the combo for you.

5. Sage green and beige





Sage and beige were a match made in heaven, and the earthy tones are perfect for a minimal mani-pedi combo that you’ll be proud to bare your toes for.

6. Lavender and mint





We love the look of choosing nail colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, and lavender and mint are a perfect example of why: it’s simple and understated, but just the right amount of eye-catching.

Essie in Mint Candy Apple

7. Orange and red





Our personal favorite go-to for the summer is a bright orange paired with a classic red. To pull it off without a hitch, opt for an orange that’s in the same color family as the red (OPI’s “Cajun Shrimp” will always be our favorite), and a warm red that’s more hot summer sun, less Christmas season.

How I Found Confidence Again

A woman's reflection in a mirror that has the decal "be confident--you got this."

Growing up, I was a confident girl. I organized kickball games in the cul-de-sac where I lived. I memorized and recited the Declaration of Independence for a speech meet. Once when I spent the night at a friend’s house, I recruited her two older brothers to do relays with us up and down their hallway.

As a teenager, I was the captain of my volleyball team. I led a small group in my youth group. On the morning of my 15th birthday, my mom took me to get my learner’s permit, and I drove home from the office on one of the busiest highways in town. 

Confidence was always something that came naturally to me. My transition to college, however, was a difficult one. The number of people on my campus overwhelmed me. I missed the familiarity of the people I had grown up with. Early adulthood diminished the light I possessed in my adolescent years.

The scary part was that I didn’t know how to make it brighter again. I had begun to lose my way and with that, my confidence waned. 

So I tried moving to another country. The women native to my new country of residence were extremely beautiful—not only in their looks but also in how they carried themselves. They wore heels to run errands on Saturday mornings and fake eyelashes to work. They greeted me with embraces and cheek kisses, and they fussed over me when I visited their homes.

Slowly but surely, I found myself comparing myself to their version of beauty. Comparing myself to them extinguished my light completely. 

Comparing myself to [these women] extinguished my light completely. 

Years later, when my daughter was born, I threw all my energy into teaching her how to hold a spoon, then on how to take her first steps and how to say “please” when she wanted something. Early motherhood was so demanding that it was easy to ignore my insecurities and the feeling that I was living less than whole. 

A few months before my daughter’s third birthday, my world fell apart. I was met with one of life’s unexpected blows, and my heart was broken. At first, I cried, I asked why, and I let myself be a victim. After a few months of this, I thought about the life I wanted to create for my daughter, and I decided to move back home.

Soon after returning home, I played in an alumni volleyball game for my high school team. During the game, I served, jumped to block and bent my knees enough to dig. For those few hours on the volleyball court, I felt my confidence returning. For a moment, I remembered what it was like to be 17 and the captain of my volleyball team—17 and confident, 17 and alive.

I smiled the entire game. I knew what it was like to live diminished. I wanted to live again. I wanted to light a new fire in my bones, body and heart. 

I wanted to live again. I wanted to light a new fire in my bones, body and heart. 

It has been a few months since the volleyball game. Now, I have a new job. Every day that I am there, I am surprised by how much I like the job and how much I like the people I work with. I wake up early to write and pack my daughter’s lunch for preschool. I make my lunch for work, and after I get off work, I take care of my daughter until she goes to sleep. As I make my way through my daily routine, I am finding my way again.

Just as my daughter watched me play in the alumni volleyball game, high-fiving me during time-outs, I know she is watching me in life. Watching me pack those lunches, seeing me go to work and hearing me say that I am tired but still choosing to take care of her. My daughter is watching me put one foot in front of the other, even when it’s hard. She is watching me choose to live again.

Instead of “living with a broken heart,” I think of it as living because of the broken heart. The broken heart was what propelled me forward, opening my eyes to a full and beautiful life that, for a long time, I had only been living halfway. 

The broken heart was what propelled me forward, opening my eyes to a full and beautiful life.

I once was a confident girl. Then, I became a confident teenager. This is the year that finally, I became a confident woman.

Have you ever gone through an experience that crushed your confidence? How did you find your way again?
