Give a girl a nice pedicure, and she can conquer the world! Self-care is all about taking care of your body and improving your overall appearance, and since you’re on your feet every day, they deserve some love as well.
Pedicures are the perfect way to pamper your feet and improve foot health since they make you feel relaxed while adding the perfect touch of glam. Speaking of foot glam, we have rounded up all the hottest pedicure and foot trends that will bedazzle your feet from ankle to toe.
1. Pastels for the Win
Pastels are the official color theme for spring and summer. When you’re tired of using the same old dark fall tones, these light hues give you the perfect color transition. You’ll know that the weather’s becoming warmer when the nail paint gets lighter and pastels have been all the rage lately.
So many people have opted for a full white nail look even in winters. However, we're spoilt for choices regarding adorning our feet with delicate shades of lilac, peach, and baby blues. You can never go wrong with the subtle pastel nail colors as they complement your feet perfectly on a bright, sunny day.
2. Mood Polish
We may not have flying cars in the 21st century, but we thank science for blessing us with mood polish. Who would've ever thought that we'd ever have a nail paint that changes color according to our mood? These amusing nail paints will surprise you with a change of color with the temperature change.
While most of us change our nail paint on our own to suit the temperature, mood polishes save you from the hassle as they adapt to their changing environment on their own. This particularly happens when your body temperature drops or increases due the change in the surrounding temperature.
We all know that dark and vivid is the way to go in colder seasons and mood polishes adopt darker hues when it gets colder. Therefore, you’ll see your nail paint get darker as you enter a chilled air-conditioned room or go out at night.
Similarly, your nail paint develops a lighter hue in warmer temperatures. So, this nail paint will have lighter colors in summer, when you hold a cup of coffee or even when you have a fever. However, the colors remain neutral at a normal temperature.
These nail paints are also true to their name since your mood influences your body temperature as well. Therefore, those internal thermal fluctuations are one of the reasons behind the self-changing colors of this nail paint.
3. Eye-Catching Red
Red nail paint is a classic that has withstood the test of time. This shade has always been a show-stopper and makes one stand out of the crowd with its attractive and vibrant tones. However, there are variations in red as you can take your pick between a darker or a lighter shade of this color.
Red is the color of power, confidence and sex appeal. This shade can also make your nails pop and shine with a lustrous finish or give them a darker subtler look a matte finishing. Therefore, if you want to boost your confidence and make heads turn, then red is your go-to shade.
4. Glow in the Dark Polish
You know that fashion has come a long way if you have glow in the dark nail polish. As the name suggests, this nail paint glows and shines bright when it gets dark. It usually gives a neon-hued luster which almost make your nails stand out like a neon board. Talk about donning a head-turner.
This nail paint is a Halloween favorite as it helps people get their spook on and experiment with their creativity and Halloween looks. You could also wear this a glow in the dark nail polish on a fun night out with the girls as it will give you the perfect funky look. Waving your hand in this nail polish will definitely make it easier to spot you in a bustling crowd.
5. Natural Pedicure
Most people get their pedicures done in the warmer seasons as it gives them the perfect opportunity to flaunt their feet in sandals and other open-toe shoes. A natural pedicure usually consists of natural-looking shades which are very similar to our own nail color.
Since everyone usually has a pinkish nail tone, these pedicures enhance the underlying pink tone of your nails using a natural colored nail paint. You can also top this paint with a generous coating of a transparent nail polish that will enhance the shine and luster of your nails.
If you'll notice, all that's missing is a coat of white nail paint, and you will have a perfect French pedicure. Therefore, you could just keep your natural-looking nail tone, or you could go one step ahead and adorn the French pedicure look. The choice is yours.
