How is it fair that we only get to wear sandals for like a quarter of the year? They’re so beautiful and we can’t stop buying them! Hands up, who has five pairs of sandals and only goes on one holiday a year? Well there’s seven days in a week you guys, so really we’re not doing too bad. And every fashionista is going to want the new season sandal style. We rest our case.


We’re going to show our fabulous summer footwear off to the max this year with the coolest nail art, the most flattering pedicure colours and the hottest toenail trends of the season. Join us in a perfect pedicure with these tips.


One of the hottest fabric trends for SS17, gingham makes for a hella cute manicure or pedicure. Use Dorothy as your inspiration like @picturemynails or opt for a red check that brings to mind old-worldy picnics in the sun. You’ll find a tried-and-tested tutorial we LOVED – and loads of inspo – right here.

Nude nails are low-key and majorly sophisticated in the same breath. Classy, yet sultry. Add gems to your cuticle line for extra glamour or paint your ring finger with gold glitter for sandals with gold metal accents.

Grey Chrome

One of the most glam nail art styles around, yet super-easy to achieve. Mirror nails require metallic nail wraps or a black paint base and some chrome powder rubbed over the top when dry. The result looks so powerful and expensive – without emptying your bank account – and it looks amaze with low-key, dark brown sandals.

Another idea inspired by an SS17 trend, slogan nails are possibly our fave option for the season. Make a statement or keep your own little secret if nobody gets close enough to see what it says! Works as well on feet as hands but we’d stick the transfers to big toenails only for obvious reasons! Just Google “word and letter decals” to find the decoration that you want to shout about.


The Footwear!

We couldn’t have all this talk about feet and not mention the must-have holiday footwear for this season. Explore clog-heeled sandals and strappy going out heels, as well as suede and metallic wedge styles right here at Jane Norman.
