The Pedi Treatment: 5 Ways to Refresh Toes for Fall

The Pedi Treatment: 5 Ways to Refresh Toes for Fall

Summer may be ending, but here are five ways to keep your toes fresh for fall.

The bad news? Spending weekends swimming and beaching are over. The good news? Your rigorous pedi schedule can finally be taken down a notch. While you're figuring out how to spend all the free time you'll have skipping spa treatments (or if you're a DIY gal, painting your toes at home), pick one of these fall-fabulous pedicure hues for your next session.

1. Classic
Even though red nails rose to popularity eons ago, a classic red pedicure is always a gorgeous way to look glamorously ’60s screen siren. When it comes to red, the truer the better. A cherry-tinged hue is fun for fall, with an added top coat for a little extra gloss. 

2. Vampy
After a season of lights and brights, it's downright refreshing to return to a moody hue for your pedicure. Apply petroleum jelly with a cotton swab around the nail bed for ease of removing anything you "colour outside of the lines" post-pedi.

3. Neutral
Whether pink or nude is your bag, a neutral pedicure in an opaque shade is a ladylike way to embrace the fall season. Bonus: A light, neutral pink or nude nail polish hue will take far longer than its deeper counterparts to show chips. Want it to be more opaque? Simply apply over a white nail polish.

4. Bright
Pops of colour on the toes need not be relegated to the neons of summer. For fall, temper the fluorescence, but maintain the brightness with shades of vibrant orange, cobalt blue and purple. For an autumn-appropriate colour palette. Either match your pedicure to your manicure, or opt for complementary hues on the colour wheel. Try purple with yellow or orange with blue.

5. Verdant
Embrace the shade of the year and go for a crisp, green polish on your digits. For a subtle effect. Constant Caribbean is a good way to remind you of that tropical vacation you took far too long ago.

Quick Tip: Running late and your pedi's chipped? If you're wearing peep-toe shoes, you need only apply polish to the first three toes and let dry. Skip the rest until you return home!
