The 'It' Colours of Summer
Everyone wants to know what the “it” colours of summer are, and we always say “whatever your heart desires.” However, we’ve seen a growing trend with nudes, pinks, and whites because they are flattering and bright, but bold pops of colour are always a good choice for your summer pedicure. Give your feet a bit of TLC, now is the time to colour them happy!

Make Colour Last
Nail lacquer is a good choice for a regular pedi, but if you want to go one step further for your summer pedicure, ask for gel nail polish on your toes. With up to 21 days of wear, you won’t have to think twice about whether or not your feet are sandal-ready. And if you’re looking for something bright, this formula is available in hundreds of shades.

Say bye to Dry Skin
Going barefoot brings on cracked heels and dry skin, which is why pedicures are crucial in the summer. How do you get rid of dead skin on your feet, you ask? Exfoliation and buffing offer much-needed relief to these common skin issues and will keep your heels looking perfect for all your backless sandals. We suggest asking your nail tech to focus on your feet and calves when it comes to exfoliation and trying a foot mask for added moisture to combat cracked heels.

You Don’t Have to Match
We always get asked if the shade on your toes should match your hands, and we say NO. We’re huge proponents for wearing whatever you want, whenever you want, even if that means five shades on one foot. Don’t be afraid to mix and match when it comes to your summer mani-pedi.

Up Your Shine
While nail lacquer is a popular choice for pedicures, you can majorly up your shine with Infinite Shine. This polish is a 3-step system featuring a base, colour, and top coat that will give you gel-like wear (without curing) that’s super glossy. Plus, it offers up to 11 days of chip-free wear, which is much longer than traditional lacquer.
