Summer Colors and Ideas to Choose from for Your Next Pedicure
The summer season is soon approaching, and several summer pedicure colors have made it to the trend list, especially in the previous year. These include neon and earth tones, among others.
It is that time of the year again when one ponders about different shades for their manicure and pedicure. Look no further, as there are a variety of colors to choose from.
For pedicure options, coral, pink, and bright red colors are considered a great choice for summer. However, in May 2022, new popular shades made the trend list.

Shades like earth tones, icy blue, and neon yellow seemed trendy. If trying out an at-home pedicure look, choose suitable cuticle care and the right color.
When opting to paint nails at home instead of at the salon, treatment is recommended to hydrate the skin around the nails to get the perfect look.
10 Bold Pedicure Color Options to Try Out for the Summer of 2023
1. Popping Yellow & Orange
As of this writing, model Hailey Bieber has seemingly already set the trend list for neon yellow nails for the summer this year.
Expert Julie Sarinana said bright shades of orange and yellow are a perfect choice because they complement one's outfit choices for the summer season.

3. Classic Red Shade
Red is a popular color that is often a go-to, and Abramcyk shared its effect when applied, saying, "Keep people on their toes with fiery reds."
She suggested the Tenoverten LA nail polish, which has orange undertones, and stated that the Carmine polish is also another safe choice.

4. Darker Tones
Although summer colors are mostly known to be bright and light-colored, Ambramcyk has suggested otherwise in terms of the expectant polish trends for this year. She divulged darker manis and pedicures are expected to be popular this summer:
"Be enigmatic this summer with an unexpected dark nail."

5. Chrome Hues
Chrome colors are said to be trendy at the moment. Expert Jin Soon Choi suggested which nail polish brand to try to get the desired look for a pedi.
She recommended JINsoon's Akoya nail polish and said the product "makes a statement" on one's toenails.

6. Subtle Pastels
Lavender is considered a neutral shade, and all three experts mentioned above agree. Abramcyk revealed Lavender pedicures are topping the trends list currently. While Sarinana said, pastel colors are her go-to options for the summer season. Meanwhile, Choi noted:
"Lilac is a subtle yet pretty toe nail color and is a good substitute for neutrals for someone that doesn't like pops of color."

Shimmery pedicure is said to be used to match the '90s glam look with body glitter and frosted lavender eye shadow.

10. Forest Green
For warm weather conditions, a lime pedicure is the color choice. If attempting a green look for toenails, there are two products to consider.
A Gucci Glossy Nail Polish is an excellent option. If choosing the lighter route, then the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel is recommended.
