While we still love a bright, tutti-frutti pedicure during summer, pastel polishes can actually make you look more tan! A vivid coral or neon pink will certainly make a statement, but a flamingo pink or baby blue creates the illusion of tanner skin on paler complexions. Same goes for your bikini. Opt for a lemon yellow rather than a chartreuse, and those limbs will look like they’ve spent a few summers in St. Tropez. Try out some of our favorite summer pastels below for your next pedicure.
Quite possibly the prettiest pink we’ve applied in a long time, the opaque formula is a soft salmon hue, great for all complexions.
This beige/cement hybrid may seem boring in the bottle, but the neutral tone gives your skin a moment to shine. Plus, how can you resist that gorgeous packaging?
Mimic the sky with this baby blue shade! Blue and orange are color-wheel complements, so a blue hue amps up any tan/red tones in the skin. We imagine wearing it with caramel-colored sandals and a fuschia pink bikini!
Imagine yourself in a field of buttercups. That’s how you’ll feel every time you look down at your tootsies with this hue. Formulated with a slight olive undertone, this muted varnish suits golden/olive skin tones best.
