It is that time of year again when you are ready to take off your winter coat, switch out your heavy moisturizer, and update your manicure and pedicure. In springtime, pedicures are essential not just because they make your feet look prettier in your open-toed shoes, but also because they moisturize and clean your feet to keep the skin healthy.
By getting a pedicure in Doha (or wherever you live), you are not only indulging in some much-needed self-care but also ensuring you are taking care of your body. After all, you stand on your feet every day!
The hardest part about getting a pedicure is deciding which color or design to get, so we have rounded up the best options for every style. Read on for the five spring pedicure trends you need to know about for your next salon visit.
Once the winter is over, it is almost expected that you are going to quickly strip off the dark colors you have been sporting and switch to something lighter and airier. This is why pastels are always a go-to for manicures and pedicures come spring.
A sheer-pinky nude is a classic colorthat works well with all skin tones and for all events. However, for something slightly different, consider opting for a pastel lemon shade, a soft periwinkle, or a metallic lavender. Alternatively, a shimmery rose goldpolish looks beautiful on the toes and is a little more fun than a pure nude.
Undoubtedlythe color of the season, green is going to be seen everywhere and on all your favorite fashion girls. However, it doesn’t need to only be present in your wardrobe; instead, you can also choose to wear it on your toes for a trendy pedicure. While you may not have thought of it before, there is certainly a shade that is right for your aesthetic.
For a chic look, consider a deep mossas it almost looks like black. Alternatively, for a lighter option, pistachio is fresh and surprising. Finally, for a glamorous choice, you can’t go wrong with a sparkly greenthat will have you looking like a mermaid in no time.
Another classic option, white nail polish is a go-to choice for women around the world because it is clean, summery, and helps you achieve that sun-kissed glow. That being said, not all whites are created equal, and there are plenty of varieties on the market in terms of shades and finishes. What is more, white nail polish provides the perfect base if you want to add a shimmery topcoat or nail art.
A white nail polish witha smooth, gel-like finish is your best optionif you are looking for a clean and sleek pedicure, while a white polish with a slight shimmeradds a beautiful extra detail. If you aren’t ready to go fully white, look for a nail polish that has a hint of peachin the formula or a greyish-blue. The latter is a fantastic way to have a mix of modern and classic at the top of your toes.
4. Jewel Tones
If you are itching for the vibrant colors that summer brings, then you may want to skip the pastel shades and instead go for something a little louder, like jewel tones. A fun idea is to paint every other nail a different jewel-toned coloror alternate between two complementary colors such as tangerine orange and peach. You will feel warm just by looking down at your nails!
A creamy, cobalt blueis a surefire way to get yourself into the spring mood and is an excellent option for a pedicure, while a magenta polish is flirty and playfuland complements most spring outfits. Other jewel-tone colors for you to try include ruby red, emerald green, citrine yellow, and sapphire blue.
5. Nail Art
While nail art is usually reserved for fingernails, there is no reason why your feet can’t participate in the fun as well! This spring, look for a design that you love and can be shown off while wearing your new sandals or open-toed heels. Then head to your favorite nails salon in Qatar(or wherever you reside) and let the professionals work their magic.
One of the biggest nail art trends this year is striped nails, a look that a professional nail technician can do on your toes. For some creative artistic stripes, choose a few of your favorite colors and then decide whether you want the lines to go horizontally or vertically. Alternatively, consider an ombré French manicure with either an orange or a pink hueat the tips and a taupe or cream base. Or, you can never go wrong with a pop of metallic!
