Summer’s top-trending pedicure polishes

Summer’s top-trending pedicure polishes

Sandal season is in full swing and if you’ve joined the many thousands scrolling through ‘best pedicure colour’ searches for inspiration, you’ve arrived at the right place. Bright hues are, of course, a summer pedi mainstay. This year, though, we’re also loving a little newness… and so are you. These are our five pedicure polish favourites, along with expert tips that guarantee your longest-wearing, most glossy finish.

Pastel perfection

"Pastels are the newest trend, with light greens, corals and yellows all in demand."
Sonia Hully, Nailberry Founder


The mood right now is playful; expressing your creative side through standout, less conventional colours. Pistachi-Oh! fits the brief perfectly. This fresh, fun and energising pastel green really pops from flip-flops or peep-toe pumps, plus it works day to night, making it an effortless style choice when going from beach to bar.


Peony Blush

Tropical corals truly are an oh-so seasonally appropriate tone and our light pastel Peony Blush is another top pedi pick. Distinctly vibrant and yet chic enough for special occasion wear, we love how it brightens our mood as well as any ensemble we pair it with.


Simply The Zest

Our upbeat pastel lemon-yellow is the kind of bright, can’t-miss-it colour that’s just perfect for summer pedicures. It’s fresh, sweet and works with a host of summer style choices (evening sun dress, beach wear, daytime casuals), plus it looks stunning against sun-kissed skin.

Pop pinks

"With toes, anything goes! Though vivid pinks and corals are always bestsellers."
Sonia Hully, Nailberry Founder

Bubble gum

Love a punchy pink on a sun-filled day? So do we. Our deliciously sweet rosy-coral, Bubble Gum, is a perennial summer polish favourite. Bright and fun, yet still neutral enough for daytime wear, we love the upbeat edge this adds to any look.


"After months of being covered up, we’re often very eager to let our toes stand out in summer. Bold is most certainly better!"
Sonia Hully, Nailberry Founder

Golden Hour

Shimmering chrome colours are big this summer for both manicures and pedicures; there’s something rather magical about how they shine even brighter when worn during this season. You won’t find a more wonder-filled, sunshine-filled shade than Golden Hour. Versatile and vibrant, our warm gold flatters all skin tones and is a stunning choice for day or evening wear.

Perfect pedi prep

Having been hidden away in socks, tights and boots over autumn and winter, there’s nothing more satisfying than the look and feel of soft, smooth feet and neatly shaped nails. Here’s our essential at-home pedicure routine.

"The most popular pedicure shape is flat along the top with gently filed edges on either side that follow the toe shape. Also, keep toenails short (but not excessively short) to avoid risk of nail trauma from longer lengths hitting the inside tip of shoes."
Sonia Hully, Nailberry Founder

  1. Smooth | Clear rough, dry skin with a fine foot file. Follow with a sugar or salt scrub for extra exfoliation.
  2. Soften | Rinse feet, pat dry and massage in a rich moisturiser.
  3. Shape | File and lightly buff toenails, then use Clean nail colour remover to clear lingering moisturiser or filings on the nails.
  4. Prep | Apply one layer of Strengthen & Breathe Base Coat and allow to dry over 2-3 minutes.
  5. Polish | Apply two thin layers of your chosen L’Oxygéné colour, allowing each to dry fully before applying the next.
  6. Set | Lock in gloss, colour vivacity and ultra-long-lasting wear with a finishing layer of UV Gloss, our lamp-free, salon-gel-effect top coat.
