It should come as no surprise that when the weather starts to warm up and the season edges towards summer, our thoughts turn to our holidays. There are all kinds of different types of vacationing to be had, but the most common one has to be by the seaside, relaxing on the beach and hearing the sounds of the waves lapping at our feet.
Talking of feet, it is time to get our toes pedicured and ready to be shown off. But if you are having trouble picking out a suitable colour for your next pedicure you might be interested in learning that the latest summer theme for feet is seaside nail polish.
Colours that evoke either sandy beaches or the deep azure blue of the sea are in vogue this summer.
We have picked out our favourite seaside nail polishes:
