Ready to put your best foot forward this summer? We went ahead and took all the guesswork out of your favorite footwear and polish pairings. All you have to do is put your feet up and relax — though you’ll likely want to go out and show them off.

1. Ocean dip

Add some sparkle to your everyday look or prep for a special getaway) with this ocean-friendly pairing. Make like a mermaid with the Calypso polish set, which includes two shades — one sparkly and one solid — so you can switch up your style as you wish. Bonus points if you sport the complimentary sequined pouch as a mini clutch for essentials.
