Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

Is summer also your season? I personally can't wait until I can wear cheerful dresses, skirts or my shorts again and then I prefer to wear flip-flops or sandals. But of course those feet have to look a bit...

Your feet have to endure a lot. They carry and take you where you want to be, all day long. In winter they are tucked away in socks and shoes. But when the temperature rises, they can 'breathe' again and then you naturally give them a thorough overhaul so that they become summer-proof. I'll give you some nice3 tips so that you can get real Happy Summer Feet in no time. 

  1. Feet pampering
  2. Happy nails
  3. Decorate your ankles
  4. Pimp your own flip-flops

Tip 1 - Feet pampering

Foot bath

Your feet deserve some pampering, right? First remove some old nail polish, the 'left overs' from last summer and make a lovely foot bath with lukewarm water. Add some nice bath oil drops or one of those nice bath bombs from Lush, for example.

Remove your calluses - It is probably not an unnecessary luxury to scrub your feet with some scrub gel for nice and smooth soles. And if there is still some callus left, remove it with a pumice stone or a callus file.

Take care of your nails - Only cut your nails if a large part of the nail needs to be removed. But is it just a small edge? Then you better file your nails. First rub the cuticles with an oil before pushing the cuticles back with a cuticle pusher.

Massage your feet - Pamper your feet with a delicious foot cream. Because after a winter in socks and tights you probably forgot to lubricate them. And while you are applying it, massage the cream firmly and give yourself a foot massage, good for the blood circulation and your feet will thank you, trust me.

Tip 2 - Happy nails

A natural deserve summer feet, summer nails. You can of course opt for the classic 'red nails' . But also try something new. For example, each nail is a different color, or dots with a skewer with a different color of polish on the still wet base layer. Make nice flowers or figures. Or how about simply covering the first colors straight or diagonally with adhesive tape and then painting that box with a different color. And if you mess up the polish, you can remove it with a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover. Let it dry thoroughly, carefully remove the tape and then apply a layer of clear varnish over it. Have fun, just try. Your feet can take quite a bit and you will steal the show.
