If our mood is reflected in our nail color choices, it’s no wonder I am guilty of going for the dark and muted shades – harsh weather just does that to me, and it’s been so cold in the city this week. Why not illuminate these muted nail colors with a great shoe? After all, a pedicure rarely exists by itself. The Dior Vernis Nail Lacquer in “Gris Montaigne” needs a great shoe to kickstart its a muted hue; after all, almost any nail color looks even better when it is alongside a great pump or sandal. I was lucky enough to find two shoes to match this Dior color: the Alexandre Birman Zipper Python Open Toe Booties and these Alexandre Birman Strappy Python Sandals.
It’s hard to miss the boldness of these blue Alexandre Birman Python Booties, but the muted Dior nail color will give the color a toned-down and colorblocked feel. Or, if you prefer a more subdued pairing, try the Alexandre Birman sandal which features a tan and grey python detailing. This python pattern matches this Dior color perfectly, and the grey nail helps call out the contrast in the python skin. Which shoe would you pair with this Dior shade?
