The best nail shades to wear with your hair color
Your gorgeous locks are part of your head-to-toe signature look, right? Well, we’ve kinda nailed(!) a new idea to bring your hair+style game to a whole new level: Pick your mani-pedi palette to either compliment or contrast with your hair color. C’mon—how cool is that?
We enlisted Julianna (AKA Jules) Dahbura of Deco Miami Nail Lacquer, the awesome Miami-based brand of cruelty-free, vegan and wallet-friendly nail polish collections, to help us with this one. She’s as obsessed with making the perfect nail polishes as we are with making the perfect hair products. Her colors are totally off the charts and the packaging is so pretty they’ll earn a place on your sink, not buried underneath it. (And of course we love supporting another Florida-based, woman-owned business!) We gave Jules the hair colors to work with and she picked the nail shades. We loved that she came up with on-trend pairings, more classic duos and monochromatic matches for each color and unexpected plays on the paler nails/darker toes idea. Find your match here…
The hair color: Blonde or blonde/pastel
Your Truhair Color & Lift Root Cover Powder: Blonde
The nail colors, clockwise from top left: Bubble Tea (purple-tone periwinkle). Champagne Mami (rose gold). Coco (white). Cake (neon pink). Don’t Call Me Baby Girl (baby pink).
Jules says: “With a pastel palette, there's no wrong way to pair colors since the shades are all soft and compliment one another. I’m loving rose gold as a fun pop! on toes.”

Jules says: “Really dark hair pairs well with so many color palettes, but blues, yellows, and taupes are going to be hot this summer. If you've ever been curious about yellow nail polish, now is your chance to rock it!”
