From the summer nail colours that celebrities have been requesting most this season to the mismatched manicures that have been flooding my Instagram feed since sunshine season began, you could easily be forgiven for thinking that this summer's biggest nail trends are all about bright colours and quirky nail art. However, now that sandal weather has officially arrived, I've quickly spotted that our fashion friends have been taking a more subtle approach to colour for their pedicures.
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 cost you less than your morning cup of coffee.
The nail polish of choice for editors and our fashion friends? Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Cotton, which costs a mere £4. It glides on super opaque, has a glossy finish and genuinely looks like you've visited the nail salon for a full gel pedicure. In fact, our very own assistant editor, Nell Block, showed up to the office this week wearing the very shade.
Keep scrolling for all of the ways are fashion friends are embracing the white pedicure for summer—and shop all the best white nail polishes (and their sandals, of course) while you're at it.
