When packing for a vacay, there’s one thing you don’t want to leave behind, and that’s your favorite nail polishes. Bringing several shades with you on your trip is equally as important as packing your swimwear & SPF. 😉 You just never know if you might want to update your nail color to coordinate with a certain outfit. Additionally, nail chips are inevitable on trips, so you’ll want to be prepared in the event this happens. Lastly, it’s nice to have a little “me” time on trips – I find it relaxing to give myself a DIY manicure and refresh my nail polish if time permits.
I made sure to pack all of my shades from @COLORDEPT with me on my trip to Puglia, Italy. Ahead, I’ve rounded up six cute nail polish ideas that coordinated perfectly with my outfits. From mismatched shades on my hands and feet, to fun designs, these hues/designs were key to elevating my travel looks. I hope you enjoy them and they inspire you to have fun with color on your nails for your next trip.

AVO GUAC X OVERSIZED SHIRT
This green hue is so cool and so beautiful. Green has been the trendiest go-to color for all fashion items, I can’t get enough of this shade. I paired it with a crisp-white oversized shirt to really make the green pop. This look felt so effortless and chic – wore it to pick up a green juice. Obvi made for a great matchy-matchy photo op!
GRAPE JUICE X LINEN DRESS
This breezy linen, flowy dress (by Sandro Paris) with pops of purple, matched perfectly with our Grape Soda shade. Finished the look with slides + statement earrings. L-O-V-E! The perfect look to dine al fresco at II Bastione in Galipolli – a must place to eat btw!
COCONUT WATER X STRIPES X FLORALS
White polish is a summer go-to forever, as it goes with everything in my closet. I paired it here with this adorable set by Entireworld and a floral bandeau top. Finished the look with cute gold sphere earrings & flip flops. Love the unexpected contrast between florals x stripes – I specifically chose a white hue on my nails to add a subtle element to this look. Spent all day eating pasta, having gelato and wandering around Puglia in this ensemble.
MORNING SQUEEZE X ONE PIECE SWIM
Our perfect orange shade, Morning Squeeze on my toes is probably my most favorite atm. This shade scream’s summer and truly makes any outfit pop! Styled here with a striped one piece + oversized white sunnies! Wore it for a day by the pool while enjoying some fresh squeezed orange juice, sole and catching up on VOGUE.
STRAWBERRY JAM X FUN MATCHING SET
If Color Dept. were a matching set, this would be it! This little cutie is by Sandro Paris. How fun and adorable is it? I knew I had to pair it with our pink shade, Strawberry Jam. Went a little extra mile to create a fun design. Perhaps I’ll do a quick DIY tutorial – surprisingly some designs are totally doable from your home. You just have to have the patience. 😉
You can’t go without our trusty clear Top Coat. Applying a clear top coat is essential – especially if you’re planning on dipping in the ocean. You’ll want to add an extra layer of protection against that salt water! 😉
