If you've been putting off your summer pedicure until the season's official start date (we'll call that the summer solstice, June 21), it's just about time to switch to open-toed shoes for the months ahead. Now that you're leaning into sandal season — and, naturally, looking for a toenail colour to match — we have your foolproof guide to the nail polishes you'll wear on rotation from now through Labor Day.
Ahead, check out 8 shades of polish the pros are recommending for summer 2019 pedicures. From OPI's classic red-tinged coral to the most flattering shade of marigold, find the prettiest bottles to inspire your summer DIY mani-pedi — which will hopefully be followed by a week (or at least a long weekend) of R&R spent sprawled out on your favourite beach towel.
