Top 8 Pedicure Colors for Summer 2012 per Allure Magazine

Posted on: June 29, 2012

Allure magazine has to be one of my favorites. It’s a great magazine for women of all ages. Yesterday they ran an article showing how to look younger by using your make up different. I did a video on the tips they highlighted and how to make them work for you. They also showed the top 8 pedicure colors for this summer. Their list is as follows:

1. Lemon – they suggested L’oreal Tweet me or Revlon Lemon Meringue from scented line

2. Aqua – their number 1 suggestion was Butter London Slapper. I couldn’t agree more. Love that color. Another great aqua would be For Audrey by China Glaze, although lighter than Slapper, I still would call this aqua.

3. Petal Pink – Allure magazine suggested Shelby from Zoya or Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink.

20120629-122350.jpgGo Go Pink from China Glaze. This is also a real pretty petal pink. I think a lot of us have this color because it was marketed in a kit for Breast Cancer Research. You can buy this kit here under my page, Polish for Sale


4. Red-Orange Allure suggested L’oreal Caught Red Handed. One of my favorite red-orange is LC from Zoya.

5. Electric Purple Illamasquasca Stance and Butter London HRH were the 2 examples given. I haven’t seen those colors but my favorite electric purple is Anne from Julep.


6. Bronze -the magazine suggested OPI Brisbane Bronze and Maybelline Bold Gold. They both look a lot like Browno Mars from Catrice.


7. Orange Sherbert – I don’t have an orange Sherbert-y colors, as we all know, orange and I don’t get along very well. The magazine suggested China Glaze Orange You Hot and Essie Fear or Desire.

8. Barbie Pink – who doesn’t love a Barbie Pink pedicure? My favorite Barbie Pink of all time has to be CHANEL May.

What’s on my toes? That would be #4 Red-orange. This is from L’Oreal called Rajun Cajun.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
