The French pedicure is one of the most popular designs and despite being a classic and traditional style, it's a great option for manicured feet, flaunting a look that's elegant and sophisticated. For a French pedicure, you'll only need two nail varnish colours: white and one in pale pink or pale peach for the base. Once your feet are clean and exfoliated with perfect nails, apply an even coat of the base colour to each toenail and wait for the varnish to dry completely. Next, apply the white varnish on the tip of your toenails, using a thin brush to make the line thin and straight. For the finishing touch, if you want the pedicure to last longer, reapply a light coat of clear varnish or the base coat.

Floral prints are very popular, especially during the spring and summer, providing a fun and fresh style to your nails. There are plenty of floral patterns and colour combinations that you can use to decorate your toenails. If the flowers are light coloured, then choose a dark colour for the base, or the reverse, to better highlight the design. Alternatively, draw different coloured flowers on a pale background, as shown in the image. The first step is to apply a base coat and then let it dry before drawing the petals and a small white dot in the centre of the flowers with a thin brush. Draw all the flowers you want and seal the design with a coat of gloss.
