Experts and Fashion People Agree: This Is the Best Pedicure Colour for Summer

Take one look at the summer nail trends that experts have predicted we'll be seeing everywhere this season or the most popular manicure colours in salons right now, and you could easily be forgiven for thinking that this summer's biggest pedicure trends would also be about bright colours and quirky nail art. However, now that sandal season has officially arrived, I've noticed that our fashion friends have been taking a more subtle approach to colour on their toes.

Turns out, white is the pedicure colour of choice when it comes to showing off your designer sandals. And it's easy to see why—it's simple, classic (trust me—the white nail trend rolls around every summer, without fail), and makes every outfit look more expensive. Even if the nail polish itself will cost you a lot less than your regular in-salon pedi appointment...




The nail polish of choice for editors and our fashion friends? Essie's Nail Polish in Blanc—a cult classic and bestseller for the brand which costs a mere £9. It glides on super opaque, has a glossy finish and genuinely looks like you've visited the nail salon for a full gel pedicure. 

Keep scrolling for some of the ways our fashion friends are embracing the white pedicure for summer—and shop all the best white nail polishes while you're at it.

Shop the Best White Nail Polishes:

1. Essie Nail Polish in Blanc

The best of the best when it comes to white polish.

White toes and a tan really are a match made for summer.

2. OPI Nail Lacquer in Funny Bunny

OPI's classic nail polish in the shade Funny Bunny is another cult, bestselling white which sells out every summer.




3. Nails Inc Glowing Somewhere Plant Power Vegan Nail Illuminator

If plain white really isn't your thing, why not add a pearlescent top coat? A subtle metallic sheen adds a bit more interest and dimension.




4. Jessica Custom Nail Colour in Endure

If you find that white nails can look a little too 'Tipex' on your skin tone, try an off-white or creamy hue instead.




Still not wholly convinced? Dip your toes into the trend (pardon the pun) by experimenting with a white tipped French pedicure instead.

5. Essie French Manicure Duo Kit

In this handy kit you'll find both Essie Blanc and a super pale pink shade—everything you need for an at-home French pedi.
