Sandal-wearing weather is upon us, but if (like us) your toes have been stuffed in socks for six months without a pedicure in sight, help is at hand. From a bright coral perfect for the beach, to a tan-enhancing orange shade, these pretty toenail polishes are the easiest way to flatter your feet in flip flops this summer (because as much as we love an acid green, not all nail polishes look great on your tootsies). Get ready for the big reveal...
This summery blue will look great with a tan.

From the Mani Feel the Vibe Collection, this mini Orly polish is the perfect size to stash in your suitcase - and the hot pink shade will take you from the beach to the bar.
A punchy red is a classic pedicure shade - bring the look bang up to date with YSL's bright coral.
Green can look a bit bizarre on toenails (our mother's disapproving stare when we experimented with a pea green shade springs to mind), but this pearlescent Jade colour has a pretty metallic sheen.
From Zoya's Surf Collection, this glittery wet-look purple is a more sophisticated alternative to summer's sickly sweet pastels.
Nail polishes with a metallic sheen are more flattering on un-pedicured feet. This subtle copper shade is also office appropriate.
This show-stopping neon polish will look great on dark and white skins alike.
This girly hue will look great with Summer's candy colours.
A hot orange is universally flattering. Wear on hot summer nights.
The summer is a time when you truly can get away with glittery toenails. This shimmery aqua shade from Revlon is fun without reminding us of some dodgy nail polish experiments aged 13.
