Electric yellow, lime, cobalt blue, and fuchsia are making a big splash this year. Your toes will definitely get the attention they need with these colors. Try a fun trend by putting a different color on each toe. China Glaze has a fantastic neon summer 2012 collection.
Going to the club one of these summer evenings? Metallics are classic lacquer shades that you can wear from the beach to the club, say, in Miami or Brazil. Match this color with silver or gold pumps or heels with metallic embellishments. Kleancolor has a collection available in dark hues as well as lighter, pinker ones. Picture the sandy beaches of all the most wonderful tropical destinations in the world and you are sure to envision some of the metallic sandy pinks and beiges in this summer nail polish collection.
Of course, classic colors will never go out of fashion. Deep reds, nudes, and pinks will always look great on any feet. You can wear these to semi-formal day and afternoon events such as weddings, bridal showers, and birthday celebrations. Essie has a lovely collection that boasts colors such as watermelon and clam bake.
Like metallics, shimmer is a good color to wear when out partying. Layer them over bright or dark hues for an attention-grabbing set of toes. It also helps to buy colors with added shimmer. Zoya has a pretty set of shimmers that can make some of the most perfect summer pedicures.
Ombre is especially chic when done in metallic or shimmery shades. To do this, choose colors that are in the same color family. You’ll need a makeup sponge to dab one color over the other. Ombre is a style that can be done using different brands and different colors, so it’s as fun as it looks.
Summer is a time to let your hair down and have a break away from stress. Beach vacations are a must, and so are happy, colorful feet. One thing to consider is to get yourself armed with an array of colors, all bright and fit for the sun. Next is a pedicure or a foot spa to make your feet look like they’ve been waiting for sun, sand and surf. Happy summer!
