We like to think pedicure season is year around, which means it's never a bad time to plan your polish MO. (If you're a hot-pink person, these 20 shades have us feeling a certain type of way right now—just throwing that out there.)
Electric shades of neon or pastel hues like mint have been the pedicure prescription of choice, but this year, we're throwing some new colors into the mix just in time for your next salon appointment. Yes, scarlet reds and go-with-everything nudes will always be on the polish menu for our toes, but we'd also like to introduce more unexpected nail colours like dusty olive, denim blue, and antiqued shades of peach and pink for your consideration. Ahead, we're highlighting the 12 best pedicure colors to experiment with. Plus, the exact nail polishes you should snap up before they fly off the shelves.
#12: Denim Blue
#11: Dusty Olive
Olive green might seem an unlikely pedicure colour, but it's a surprisingly flattering option for your toes. It goes with pretty much everything, and it's a fresh alternative to the tired and expected mix of mints or neons. (I'm especially obsessed with Essie's 8-free, quick-dry formula above!)
#10: Peaches 'n' Cream
Think of this perfect pedicure colour as a rich, sleek alternative to your usual salon order of pale pink or coral. J.Hannah's lighter option feels subtler, but if you're craving something more intense, we're having a moment with Nailberry's peach colour below.
#9: Go Buff
#8: Hot Pink
#7: True Turquoise
#6: Baroque Purple
#5: Glossy Hematite
When in doubt, black is always the answer. Yep, even on your toes! It's unexpected and the superior colour choice if you're looking to hide sand or any other inevitable damage your pedicure might accrue once you're outside more. The key? Keep it ultra-glossy with a durable topcoat and reapply every few days.
#1: Electric Cherry
You can't argue the power and compliment potential of a bright-red pedicure. There are so many great shades, but these are our forevers.
This iconic shade of Chanel's is a timeless colour for toes.
