Spring is nearly here and you know what that means? Our hands and feet will be free of layers, letting our manis and pedis shine! There are some gorgeous new colors and trends for you to rock this Spring, especially those inspired by the Pantone color of 2017. But before you show off your Spring manis and pedis, you might need a little detox to get those hands and feet ready to be on show.
If you’ve been wearing gloves and cozy socks for the past few months you may be suffering from dry or callused skin, so guess what? You need to pamper yourself before Spring arrives! Worry not, we have the perfect way to do this! To give your hands a little bit of love, try out this hand rub recipe which will keep them hydrated well into Spring. Rub one teaspoon of almond oil into your hands and cuticles then wrap each hand in a small towel or place each hand in a clean sock. Allow the oil to penetrate your skin for at least five minutes (to spoil yourself even more, do this in the bath). Wipe the excess oil off your hands, but don’t wash it off as any remaining oil will be absorbed within the next few minutes. Voila, your hands and cuticles will be gorgeously soft and ready for your Spring Mani! Don’t forget about your feet! A while back we wrote this article on five DIY foot scrub recipes which are all amazing, so give one of them a try.
What colors will you choose for the first Spring mani and pedi? Well let us give you a guide to what we think will be the hit colors of Spring.
Every year at around this time, brands release their Spring polish lines, which tend to be pretty similar. Pastels, nudes etc. etc. However this year, we are LOVING the different trends for you to rock, strongly influenced by this year’s Pantone Color of the Year – Greenery – a gorgeous bright yellow/green shade. Spring brings a brighter mood and color palette to our wardrobe, so this year we are loving mixing contrasting bright colors. Colors that you wouldn’t normally mix are now on trend, bright blue and dark red, bright green and hot pink, orange and purple. You name it! A nail kit that fits in PERFECTLY with this trend is the Butter London Pantone Nail Lacquer Set which comes with four travel sized polishes for only $19. A trend that has followed on from Winter is bold metallics, copper, silver and gold look gorgeous on your fingers and toes. To rock this look we love OPI ‘Cozu-Melted In The Sun’ a gorgeous rose gold polish. All in all we are loving the Spring 2017 trends and cannot wait for our first Spring mani/pedi combo!
