There is something to be said about matching your nails to your outfit: It’s a subtle detail that can wrap an entire look together.

Now, Thai-born U.S. designer Thakoon Panichgul has taken the concept to a whole new level, pairing with French beauty giant NARS to release an exuberantly hued five-piece nail-polish set featuring shades he used prominently in his spring 2012 collection.

Matchy-matchy, here we come.
