With a beach trip coming up very soon, I realized that between my son’s school trips and concerts, being sick, etc., I never did get my spring pedicure — horror of horrors! – so now I’d better get on the stick to get my toes ready for those summer sandals.
So off I went on my nail polish scouting, to see what new shades I could see. It’s always fun to take a peek at what OPI is doing, also Essie, Chanel, Nicole by OPI and others.
From OPI I saw lots of cool hues, but Ink, a gorgeous deep blue grabbed me, but it’s SO not me – with my pale feet a hue like this would make my toes look heavily bruised. Maybe one day when I’m feeling extremely bold?
Continuing my love affair with lilac-lavender lipstick shades from spring, Nicole by OPI’s Get a Mauve On and Play Fair caught my eye. As did Sephora’s Formula X in a gorgeous deep lilac pink called Harmonics.
And for a chilly, frosty look, I love the elegant, icy Chanel pastels Atmosphere and Paradisio.
And that’s actually pretty daring for me, as I tend to think of glitter as more for younger folks. But last summer this combo made for a pretty look without being as dramatic as some of the deeper turquoises and teals can be, and it made me feel like I had cool feet – in both senses of the word. It really did help — on a 90-plus degree day it was refreshing to look down and see soothing aqua toes peeking out of my sandals.
So do share: What are your tootsies sporting this time of year? And what are your favorite pedicure shades? Do you do your own toes or do you spring for a pedicure? I know Portia has talked about having a pedicure party at a salon with friends, which sounds like a blast.
As for me, I could probably do my right foot, but a wonky back and left leg prevent me from doing that one. And I figure the nail tech wouldn’t be too amused if I went in and asked her to do just one foot, for half the price, right? 🙂
