Combining a classic nude with Pantone’s color of the year is an easy way to keep your look timeless while staying on-trend, and April Foreman, who works with Natalie Portman, recommends doing just that. “In the summer, I like to balance bright neons on the toes with a neutral flesh tone manicure,” she said. Her favorite buff hue? Dior’s Safari Beige ($23; sephora.com
). “For pedicures this summer, I’m a bit obsessed with Lal Mirchi by NARS ($18; narscosmetics.com
), and Ginger Fire by Tom Ford ($30; saks.com
). Keep the look modern by pairing with a neutral tone on your hands.”
