Prepare to bare | Seven steps to sandal-ready

Prepare to bare | Seven steps to sandal-ready

Slip confidently into sandals this summer with our expert guide.

Whether home or away, when the sun is shining none of us want to hide our toes in stifling pumps or courts. Strappy sandals and peep-toe heels are calling, meaning it’s time to show our feet a little more attention than we have of late and ensure we stride smoothly and confidently into summer.
Our at-home pedicure will keep feet soft, smooth and sublimely styled all summer long.

  1. Smooth | Use a fine foot file to smooth away any rough, dry skin. Follow by massaging sugar or salt scrub into dry skin for added exfoliation.
  2. Soak | Rinse off the scrub and further soften skin by soaking feet in warm water for at least 20 minutes. 
  3. Soften | Seal in the effects of your efforts with a rich moisturiser. Layer on feet at night, pop on some socks and wake to super-soft soles.
  4. Prep | File and very lightly buff toenails, then remove lingering moisturiser or nail polish with our award-winning, acetone-free nail colour remover, Clean.
  5. Style | Apply one coat of Strengthen & Breathe Base Coat before following with a thin coat of your chosen polish.
  6. Set | Add a second thin coat of polish then finish with a layer of Shine & Breathe Top Coat to prevent fading, prolong wear and deliver outstanding shine.
  7. Dry | Apply our Dry and Dash Lacquer Drying Drops to speed up your pedicure dry time and ensure no smudging

    Shades of summer

    Here’s our top summer picks for this season.
    Peony Blush
    Vibrant yet by no means overpowering, the tropical and oh-so seasonally appropriate hue of our classic coral is sure to brighten up your every summer ensemble.

    A shade that featured prominently on spring/summer ‘19 catwalks, our creamy yet cool lilac polish is feminine without any hint of sickly sweetness, adding a delightful yet edgy effect to your summer look.

    The must-have shade to complement newly bronzed skin, our bright pastel turquoise evokes dreams of azure seas and infinity pools. No summer wardrobe should be without it.

    Delicate, elegant and reassuringly versatile, the subtle, soft tones of our timeless nude polish can be worn with almost anything, beautifully complimenting your style without stealing away any attention.
