Summer is the perfect time for showing off glossy, perfectly polished toes — except if you’re me. Between not wanting to blow my budget on pricey salon treatments and my inability to paint my own toes without smudging, my digits are embarassingly neglected. So when I heard about Avon’s new Instant Pedicure, I had to try it and I was pleasantly surprised by the results. Just match the different sized strips to the width of your toenails, peel enamel from the adhesive and press the color onto your nail. After you smooth out any bumps and tear off the excess, throw on your flip flops and head out the door. I tried “Starburst” for a pretty coral look that lasted longer and chipped less than regular polish, at a fraction of a pedicure price. Buy it at avon.com, $8 in one of eight shades. — Isabelle Miller
