It also allows you to creatively design your own pedicure nail art or even a basic plain pedicure. Depending on your budget, you might even consider a luxury pedicure, complete with pedicure scrubs, a foot spa, ultra-soft towels, and music for your own relaxation and enjoyment.

Choosing Your Creative Pedicure Style for the Summer

Consider these fun and exciting summer pedicure ideas:

Bright and Bold Summer Pedicure
Try a bright and bold pedicure for the warmest months of the year.Paint all your toenails in the brightest, boldest color you love for summer. Consider bright orange, hot pink, deep green, turquoise, or yellow. Make a statement with a pedicure no one can miss. You can paint all your nails the same color, each a different color, or alternate between colors.

Pedicure Nail Designs
If you get easily bored with a simple solid color pedicure, be sure to spice things up a bit with a nice nail art design on your toenails. Paint all your nails in the desired basecoat color and then spruce up a nail or two with a summery nail art design like a watermelon slice, a beach ball, or the sunshine. You might also consider less seasonal nail art ideas, like a daisy or another pretty flower.

At-Home French Pedicure
If you aren’t confident about painting your own pedicure, look for French pedicure kits to help you get started with a classic, timeless look. To create your own French pedi, simply gather the right materials – white nail polish, nude or light pink nail polish, and a clear topcoat. You might also consider using French Pedicure guides to allow you to paint the tips of your nails more flawlessly.

No matter what you decide to do for your pretty summer pedicure, be sure you enjoy a pedicure treatment about twice a month while the warm weather lasts. Your feet will be softer, smoother, and more beautiful than ever.
