How to Make Your Pedicure Last Longer

How to Outsmart a Chipped Pedicure

Summer is the best time to show off your perfect pedicure, but when you're strutting around in sandals or barefoot on the beach, there's nothing protecting your toes from getting scuffed up. And getting chipped polish halfway through your beach vacation is a bummer. So what's the trick for a pedicure that will last through Labor Day and beyond?

A gel pedicure. That's right, the mini-miracle manicure isn't just for your fingernails. Shiny and impervious to chips, it's the set-it-and-forget-it way to keep your pedicure looking perfect. (The only catch is that you'll have to go back to the salon to get the color taken off.) Though Summer may be ending, this is a pedicure you'll want all yearlong. Since it dries instantly, you can get a pedicure in the Winter, throw your boots on, and walk out the door.
