Lips 'N Tips

It's a bit of an old-fashioned concept, but I've been finding myself matching my nail and lip colours. Back around the 1940s and 1950s this would have been standard for a woman to do, but it's only something I've recently caught myself doing, and although it's usually completely accidental, I think some products look so lovely together. So I thought I'd put together a post of my favourite matching lip'n'tips combinations!

These are a couple of my peachy go-tos for the summer months, especially when I've got a bit of a tan. Topshop Ohh La La and Barry M Gelly Papaya are a really lovely match, such a pretty peach with the slightest hint of orange/coral!

Very occasionally I fall very deeply in love with pink, and MAC's Speak Louder is my favourite lipstick for that time, as it's such a nice fuschia shade without being too bright for everyday. I've only got it recently but the Soigne Cerise nail polish I got in last months Birchbox is a really nice match. 

I've been absolutely loving NARS Luxembourg satin lip pencil recently, it's a pretty pink/red hybrid that's really flattering, and I found Nails Inc St James is the perfect match, leaning more on the red side but it definitely has a pink undertone on me. 

I love a good orange during summer, and although I don't have a true orange polish, Models Own Fuzzy Peach comes really close! And of course, the perfect orange lipstick has to come in the form of MAC Morange, I'll be getting a lot of wear from it this summer.

I've been loving the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms for quite a few months now, and I decided it was finally time to add the shade Unapologetic to my collection, which is a gorgeous bright medium toned pink. The Avon Nailwear Pro in 'Coral' is a really lovely match, although it's definitely more of a watermelon pink than coral!
