Summer is here! That just means two things – thongs and bare feet on the beach. Worried you’ve still got your dry skin from winter? Couturing explores ways to get the best feet for summer.
Going to the salon to get your feet pampered by the professionals – what more can you ask for? Get your feet soaked in aromatic oil, bath salts or wrapped in a nice smelling foot mask to soften any calluses and dry skin for exfoliation. Get a relaxing foot and calf massage to remove all the built-up tension from high heels and heavy boots you’ve worn over Winter and Spring.
Of course, the most exciting part is when you choose the colour of your nail polish. This season, the floral obsession is not applied only to fashionistas, but to beauty addicts too. Thus, the trend ranges from pastel to vibrant colours.
Arm Candy by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
This colour exudes a feminine and nude feeling, blending in to the colours of the sand and allowing your feet to look natural but polished.
Marmalade by Revlon Colorstay
This vibrant orange shade stands out so much that it won’t be missed and will be adored by your girlfriends as they see the bright contrast to the neutral colours around you. Tip: Wear a pair of light coloured pair of thongs (eg. white) for better contrast.
