When the time of year comes around to let your toes be free, do it in style. A bright yellow dress and basic black strappy sandals practically screams "spring" and requires the right accents to match. In other words, your toenail polish has to be on point. There are several colors of polish that will both help the black heels pop, while complementing the sunshine hue of your dress.
This might not be the first color to come to mind; however, on the style color wheel, yellow and purple directly complement one another. If your dress is a bright and sunny yellow, go with a nice, deep purple -- perhaps even an eggplant hue -- to accentuate both the color of the dress and the neutrality of the black sandal. Be sure to add a top coat to the top of the polish, so your purple polish literally jumps off of your toes!
Red looks fabulous with both yellow and with black, so it stands to reason that it would be a nice complement to yellow and black together. However, if the yellow is a lighter hue, go with a fun-loving cherry red; if the dress is a deeper golden color, then go with a more sophisticated burgundy hue. Red will add yet another bright element to your outfit, while keeping the focus on the sunshine color of your dress.
Explore your more adventurous side and go with an electric blue toenail hue. This ensures your toenails will do more than just pop; they will burst right out of those sandals and draw attention to your well-pedicured tootsies. Again, consider the yellow of your dress. Lighter yellows mean deeper hues; darker golden means a lighter and more deep blue color, such as gray-blue or a light cobalt.
If you want to focus solely on the color of the dress, then opt for a nude polish color, such as flesh-toned or light pink. This gives you a nice, polished appearance to your feet, without distracting from your yellow and black combination. Moreover, a nude polish makes your feet look clean and neat and allows you to wear some polish, even if it is not obvious what color you have on.
