Fall might be on display in the storefronts, but ladies, summer is still in the air! Therefore, ‘tis still the season for a cute pedi to show off in your favourite summer sandals or peep toes. For picnics, patio lunches and weekend brunches, you just gotta keep those toes adorned. (After all, nothing like staring at your own ratty toes at the beach or during a hot yoga class to just bum you right out.)
This past weekend, I pondered over which colours I have yet to try this summer — before stocking up on the latest fall colours, of course. It was time for a quick and super inexpensive at-home pedi. If you’re still looking to keep those toes looking fabulous this summer as I was, here’s a refresher on the season’s hot nail trends.
From metallic, to blues, to nudes (always a great choice!) to pinks, there are endless lacquers to choose from. Metallics can be a great option when you’re looking for a colour to pop. Then, there’s your classic nudes which can look adorable with any dress, or be office and corporate appropriate.
There’s always the peachy lacquer as well – a nice soft balance between colourful and nude – very cute with a simple flat (like the one below) worn with bright shorts and solid linen top. It’s soft, subtle and has a little colour-blocking action tossed in there.
If you want to have a little fun and play with the bold blues, this turquoise shade can be adorable on various skin tones is very fun for the beach. Pair it with a bohemian-looking thong or flat sandal and maxi dress (maybe even a large sun hat!) and baby, you are beach ready!
Now that you’ve gotten the refresher on colours to wrap up your summer with, perhaps you deserve a little pampering yourself. Word on the street (according to BlogTO) these are some of the best places in the city. We’re open to suggestions if you have others!
