I thought it might be useful to start a sticky so that we can post any colour combos that really work. I know some newbies have been struggling with this so maybe this will help get you started with some tried and tested combos.
Here's my top combo - CIM dirty martini and Reichenbach antique clear (preferably etched!)

effetre cool kiwi and CIM lapis, loverly Smiley
the usual variations on block colour wheel shades are a good way to go if you are stuck...blue meets orange/brown, yellow/citrus meets purple etc. be careful with green meets red though, until we get to december! Cheesy

My easy standby is black, white plus one other intense colour.
