The easiest way to add a splash of colour and brightness to your look is simply to jazz up your nails. I love this set from OPI that really captures the mood of a sizzling hot summer. Don’t worry if your finger nails are short: toes need colour, too! Toes that have been perfectly pedicured and painted look sophisticated and well-groomed so it’s well worth the effort of keeping them in tip-top condition. To give your feet a quick make-over, buff over any dry skin with a pumice stone or foot file, smother in moisturiser and pop on a pair of socks. After an hour or so, remove the socks, gently push back your toe cuticles and get painting! Be sure to use some polish remover on your nails before you paint them after moisturising to get rid of any oil – nail polish doesn’t adhere well to oil.
