From sandy beaches to flip flops that expose your toes to pretty much everything, sometimes summer pedicures barely last a week. To keep your tips looking fresh try one (or all!) our favorite pedi quick-changes.
Ombre Toenail Art
To DIY, simply choose a rainbow of five colors and paint each toe a different hue. The effect looks really on trend, but takes no extra time than a standard pedi.
Diagonal Glitter Toenail Art
Subtle, but really fun, a glittery diagonal effect starts with a coat of nude polish. After it's completely dry, position a strip of tape across the top. Paint glitter polish on the exposed part of the nail, and then peel away the tape. The result is nude with a little attitude.
Glitter on Top Toenail Art
A topcoat of matching glitter adds dimension to a plain pedicure. Begin with a bright color (such as the orange we used here) and select a glitter in the same color family (we went with gold).
Polka Dot Toenail Art
Start with day-old white nails and select two or more colors for dots. Choose complementary hues (think shades or blue and green) or contrasting colors like blue and orange dots. Drop blobs of nail polish on a scrap of paper. Dip a small brush (a pointed Q-tip also works) into the nail polish and paint tiny dots on your toenails.
