My Top Pedicure Picks for Those Hot August Days Ahead of Us!

Posted on: August 8, 2013

I love and adore Allure Magazine . I think they give the best advice for young and NOT so young women, like myself. Recently they came out with a list of 8 Pedicure Colors for the remaining of the summer. I agreed with them, mostly. But you know me, you know I have my own list for pedicure colors.
Here is my list of great pedicure colors for Summer 2013.

You Don’t Know Jacques from OPI is a the exact same brown as the Nike brand of flip flops I buy every year. You know the ones, with the little swoosh where your big toe goes. This year mine is pink, (the Nike swoosh that is) but the rest of the flip flop is brown. You Don’t Know Jacques is the exact same brown. Makes your toes match with the flip flops. I like that look.
Allure Magazine suggested silver and I agree with that one. I think we all have a silver in our collection. My favorite being Pedal to the Metal from Sally Hansen CSM. I’d love to have my car painted that exact same color someday.

Baby blue was another color suggested by Allure Magazine. I’ve never had my toes painted a baby blue until this week (before I read the article, oddly enough). I used a Sally Hansen Extreme Wear called Breezy Blue. No, I’m not going to show you a picture of my toes, foot fetish creepers and all, I’m sure you understand. 😊 But it is the perfect baby blue, not too light and not too dark.

Mollycoddled from butter LONDON was mentioned in the article as a great pastel color without being so pastel it gets lost, and I agree completely. If you want a pastel color on your toes, it needs a bit of oomph, otherwise it will get lost with your tan. Does any one else have feet that tan faster and darker then the rest of the body? No? Ha! Me neither. 😁

Back to the Fuschia from Sally Hansen CSM was mentioned as a great bright pink as being a perfect stand by for those summer days at the beach. There are so many pinks out there and whileBack to the Fuschia is a great one, another favorite of mine is Wet n Wild Mega Last in Candy-Licious, for me it’s the perfect pink for your toes or your nails.

Then of course a bright, duo-chrome blue was mentioned in the article and the best, IMO is Azure from CHANEL. My darling son bought this for me for my birthday/ Mother’s Day gift. Of course I had it all picked out and just waited for him to leave the men’s department so he could pay for it. It is like all CHANEL nail polish, a very multi-dimensional color. There are plenty of colors out there close to Azure but I have not come across a dead on dupe or even a close dupe, yet. I’ve had Azure on my toes most of the summer and I love it. Thank you again, Drew!

The next color on my list is a nude like butter LONDON Yummy Mummyor All Hail the Queen. Another great nude for me, with my skin tone is San Tropez from Essie. I lucked out with this Essie having a great formula and I will use it often as an “undie” for very sheer polishes.

Heat Wave from Wet n Wild Mega Last is the perfect pedicure color for those hot August days ahead of us. (It’s hard for me to include this one because this was my Mom’s all time favorite polish. She loved it so much). I had to include this on my list because it is that perfect bright orange that looks great on your nails or your toes.

When in doubt, use 2 colors half & half style, these 2 from OPI’s Euro collection would be great in a half & half pedicure. Shown here are You’re Such a Budapest and I Can’t Find My Czechbook.

I’m sure you all have your favorite pedicure colors but maybe some of these will inspire you to try something new and different. You know what I always say about different? Different is Good.

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

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
