With summer comes sandals, flip flops and open toed shoes. Oh, and bare feet! We all know that a great pedicure can be good for your health, plus it makes your feet look fabulous. Getting a pedicure is a great way to get ready for all those summer shoes, or lack of them and here are some of the summer trends.
Color trends are really kind of all over the place. From nude to natural looks, including light milky white, soft beige, pale pink and ultra-light yellow, to bright or dark colors including red, soft orange, sunny yellow, fuchsia, black, navy blue, green, and chocolate or even a stark black and white, color can be what you want it to be. Wearing spring pastels? Match your nail color.
Patterns are also diverse. One of the rather popular ones is called moon-shaped. If you look at your nail beds, you have an oval or moon shaped area at the base. Where a French tip finishes the tip, the moon shaped area is a different color from the rest of the nail. As with French tips, you can do light on dark or dark on light, dark shade on the nail with the same color as a lighter shade on the moon, or contrasting colors, think red and blue for 4th of July or even your favorite baseball teams colors. Remember, color trends are all over, so experiment and have fun. Another pattern that is popular now is stripes. No matter which way they point, vertical, horizontal, diagonal or even checkered are all the rage.
Another thing for this summer is to match your manicure to your pedicure. Same color, same patterns. So go crazy, try color and try patterns and make your hands and feet shine.
