Summer Nail Polish Trends.

Depending on what part of North America you live in, it may or may not feel like summertime.

Here in Toronto, it's been mild, but very sunny. In Boston, Mother Nature hates that I left... And has been weeping since. In Arizona and California, God has been helping everyone with natural detoxification by keeping it steam-room hot. I've heard it's been unseasonably warm and sunny in Seattle as well.

So since Summer is here (except for you Boston), it is most definitely time to think about pedicures and fashionable colors. Gray, silver and inky purple were all big hits for late Winter into Spring. But now, it's time to energize the colors on our feet!

Here is what I am currently going with on my toes...



I have no idea what the color is called. I went to Holt Renfrew's spa last week in dire need of a pedicure. I wanted a color close to my natural toe nail color. I picked out a light pinkish peach Essie color.

And apparently, I am not the only one loving light colors this season. Rachel Zoe is loving them too. But, OPI is wants you to consider some bright colors (fuchsia, hot pinks, oranges and chakra blues) from their India collection. The younger set, according to Harper's Bazaar, are rocking out with the 1980s day-glo colors of yellow, bright purple and a shocking blue.

So what colors are peeking out of your Gladiator sandals this Summer? Do tell!

Don't stone me, but currently am sporting nasty "clear" polish that is in dire need of a change-up.

I'll probably go with pale pink something. My brand is OPI, but I certainly ain't following their India lineup.

Oh, and it's boiling in BC. Love it. :)

Oh I wouldn't hate on that Mommy!

Until I went and got this latest pedicure, I had NOTHING on my toe nails!

Talk about eww!!!!

At least with clear polish you get a nice sheen.

I'm all about the neon 80's colors. Yellow right now but I'll thinking lime green might be next.

You probably should refrain from posting photos of your feet. EEK

Jealous much, Lily? I have very pretty feet, mostly when they are polished... But pretty nonetheless.

I like "clam bake" by essie in the summer. It's like an orangy red, but more orange. Very cape codish. I stay neutral on the hands, usually, I'm not going to lie, at the end of summer I usually put on an obscenely bright color before I switch to the dark fall colors. My way of savoring summer!
