Getting a mani-pedi may help you feel like the ultimate goddess, and for good reason. Not only do the procedures rid your feet of layers upon layers of dead skin, but the gentle massage on both feet and hands certainly helps work out painful kinks. If you've been stuck in a nail polish rut - selecting the same professional nail polish shade time and again - the moment to step out of your comfort zone is now. Here are a few of the most fabulous nail polish trends to try in the coming weeks:
Style icon: Miranda Cosgrove
Nothing spells summer quite like the gorgeous and ultra feminine light pink hue. Cosgrove recently refreshed our memory of how stellar and chic the color can be when used on your nails, giving a clean, sophisticated look to your tips. According to Glamour magazine, the actress chose a cool milky-pink color that was bright enough to stand out, but modest enough to wear at the office - a total win-win for any career woman.
Picking up a shade like CND Nail Colour - Pinks in Frosting Cream may be your best bet to achieve Cosgrove's look. However, before applying the gorgeous summer party pink hue, you should treat your hands to an application of moisturizing and wrinkle-reducing cream such as the Elemis Spa At Home Revitalise Me Hand Lotion to soften and tone your skin.
Style Icon: Shay Mitchell
This style guru certainly knows how to play up her naturally sun-kissed skin, whether it be by adding equally warm makeup products on her face, or adding high fashion to her toes. It's the latter we're interested in currently, as Mitchell donned a gorgeous tangerine-peach color on her feet that literally took our breath away.
The hue was the perfect combination of bold tangerine and softer, more feminine peach, helping to provide Mitchell's feet with a pop of color - without taking away from her ensemble (or her wild metallic gold peep-toe wedges). A color like this might be best reserved for your toes, or both your feet and hands if you're headed on a tropical getaway.
Though it might be OK for some work environments, the style may be a bit too bright for others, so sticking with the toes is a safe bet, while still allowing your true personality to shine through.
