Favorite Pedicure Colors

It’s pedicure season again, and while I’ve had the best of intentions, I fully admit that this weekend I took off my chipping nail polish (it had been on for about 4 weeks) and haven’t had a chance to put on more. Today is the day, my friends. So, it was especially appropriate that the nice people over at Martha Stewart sent me pics of June’s beauty article, and it was all about pedicures and colors and great pedi tips!

(I’m not sure how they discovered me and started sending me the articles, but I’m always inspired by Martha, so I’m going to keep sharing!)

One product mentioned in the article is Baby Foot’s Foot Exfoliate Peel, which kind of looks amazing. Has anyone tried it? I need to order it!

the best colors of nail polish for a pedicure
I tend to be more adventurous with my pedicure colors than I am my mani colors, but I’m especially drawn to bright pink shades. The Essie Plumberry is the color I wear about 80% of the time, in part because my husband always says that he likes it.

What’s your go-to pedi color?

Note that I’m sure that I’ve received some of these shades as a sample for consideration for feature on the blog, but other than the OPIs I’m not sure I remember which ones! I know I bought the Essies… sigh.

    Oh my goodness! You have the new Clinique Nail Enamel! Do you think the formula is really so unique that people with sensitivities can wear it? How does it apply overall?

    I ask bc I'm actually on a polish no-buy right now. =( I'm that girl who sometimes gets dermatitis on her eyelids and I'm suspecting my nail polish.

    Once I'm done making sure some new eyeshadows, shadow primer and eye cream aren't bothering my eyelids–I'm thinking about easing back into nail polish starting with my Zoya polishes since the brand is supposed to be 5-free and maybe purchasing some Clinique too before I branch out.

    Great choices indeed! They really are perfect for pedi. I also love putting on Essie plumberry.

    @Magstermash- I've only used it enough to take some swatch pics, that then didn't turn out! I need to actually "use" the polish! It applied nicely, but I don't remember anything particularly special about it. I love Zoya!
