Summer is upon us, which means that frequent pedicures are a top priority for all the nail lovers of the world! Our 13-Piece Nail Lacquer & Tools Kit includes everything you need to get your toes summer ready plus a Luxe Zip Up Reusable Portfolio to store your nail tools! This week in the blog, we are going to be going through how to use our You’re So Pedi kit, as well as give some inspo for the perfect summer pedi colour!
Getting Our Nails in Shape
The first step for our summer ready pedicure is getting our nails trimmed and shaped! Start with our Signature Nail Clippers Premium Stainless Steel Tool to clip nails to your desired shape. After trimming nails, file any rough edges with our Signature Glass Nail File Gentle Precision Filing to help prevent breakage and splitting. Before moving onto cuticles, apply our Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator to magically melt away dead or dry skin before pushing excess cuticles back with the Signature Glass Cuticle Pusher 2-in-1 Cuticle Perfector.
Baby Soft Soles
Once nails are trimmed and prepped, it’s time to focus on the feet! Start with our Signature Glass Pedicure Tool Callus Remover & Foot File to gently slough away dead, rough skin for healthier-looking feet by using the textures side to remove calluses and the smooth side to give your heels a velvet-like finish. Next, gently exfoliate feet with So Buff Hand and Foot Polish with Glycolic Acid to help promote baby soft soles and feet that appear brighter, smoother and more renewed.
Prep for Lacquer!
Now that the feet are exfoliated and smooth, it’s time for nail lacquer! Begin with a Nail Scrubber 2-in-1 Prep & Lacquer Removal Wipe to remove any nail lacquer and prep and condition nails. Once nails are clean, apply one coat of our fan-favorite Horse Power Nail Rescue Basecoat to act as a protective primer for your nails.
Fun Colours for Summer
Once your nails are prepped thanks to the You're So Pedi kit, it's time to add some colour. The best part of a new season is choosing new nail lacquers! We love wearing bright and fun colours during the warm summer season. Here are some of our favourite nail lacquer shades to try out before sealing in your colour with Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat to help prevent fading:
- Pop Orange Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer: This light tangerine crème is the perfect hue to lay by the pool as this energetic colour exudes feelings of excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth.
- Candy Floss Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer: A sweet and airy powder blue crème is the perfect pastel for summertime and adds a posh and polished look to every occasion.
- Garden Party Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer: This vibrant green crème was inspired by the simple, rural English life and reminds you to take a breath of fresh air for the ultimate cottagecore inspired pedicure.
- Flusher Blusher Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer: This bright pink crème is bold enough to make anyone blush! We love this colour for summer as it adds a fun and cheeky look to any occasion.
