There are some rules that never change. Never. For instance, not eating things you find on the ground or ever being seen drinking alcohol out of a can unless you're a 45 year old man at a cricket match, those are the kinds of things you just don't mess with. However there is one rule that it's A-okay to break at the moment. The matchy matchy rule. I'm not talking about the time when your mum told you not to play with matches either, but the old fingers and toes matchy matchy.
As spring has now sprung its completely acceptable to not only wear bright, amazing shades of candy on your nails but also to sport the same colour on your toes too. Until recently this has been a major fashion faux pas and only acceptable for those under the age of nine. The new matchy matchy also lets you to match your nails with your outfit too (but not toes as well if you're doing this, as that would be, like, totally, waaaaay too much!).
I'm particularly loving soft peachy oranges on fingers and toes right now, paired with pinks, neutrals and yellow outfits. I'm also enjoying coral nails with clashing pink lips and pink toes. Totally Copacabana chic, no? Now all we need is to sail off into the sunset on our perfectly matching yacht....
