16 Colors You'll Want For All Of Your 2023 Pedicures

Do you have a go-to color that you always choose when getting a mani-pedi? A lot of people do! Or, they rotate through a few select shades they know work for them. Many choose a neutral color for their manicure because it's easier to coordinate with different outfits and works for multiple occasions. After all, most of us aren't working with a Kardashian-style budget that can allow us to get our nails done daily or even weekly, so we want to make sure we're choosing a color that is versatile. Plus, nude nails never go out of style

Pedicures are really where you can get a bit adventurous. Showing off your toes depends on many factors, including the weather and shoe type, which means you don't have to worry about your pedi matching your outfits or your fingernails. Getting a pedicure is a wonderful way to treat yourself to some self-care, and choosing a fun polish color is just part of it.

If you're tired of coordinating your manicure with your pedicure, or you're simply looking for a bit of inspiration for a new favorite polish color to try, we're here to help. Here are 16 colors you'll want for all of your 2023 pedicures.

Cobalt blue

If you're looking for a polish color that works with every skin tone and for every season, cobalt blue is the one. While there are a ton of fantastic blue nail polishes you can buy, this cobalt blue is our top pick. It's dark enough to be worn during the fall and winter, yet its vibrancy gives those summer vibes we all desire in the warmer months or while on vacation.

White, white baby

White will always be a hot pedicure color because it's just so versatile and goes with anything you wear. This year, we'll see more milky white shades than stark, bright whites. But you really can't go wrong with any shade you choose. If you want to get a little creative, add some glitter, like in the photo above.

Icy blue

Choose an icy shade of blue for your next pedicure if you're looking for a pretty pastel polish that isn't your typical pink or purple. This color looks fantastic in the sun and will also brighten up a cold, rainy day. LA-based nail artist Sigourney Nuñez told InStyle that icy blue "pairs perfectly against any sunny backdrop."

Pastel citrus

Show off your toes with a variety of gorgeous shades of citrus. Mazz Hanna, CEO of Nailing Hollywood Agency, told The Zoe Report these "muted" shades will be some of the top trending choices of 2023. "Think the inside of a lemon, lime, and orange rather than the vibrant outside peel," she explained. This stunning lime polish is the perfect shade for your next pedicure.

Grays for days

You can never go wrong with a neutral-colored polish for your pedicure. It's classic, versatile, and simply leaves your toes looking polished (pun intended.) Essie's Global Lead Educator Rita Remark told Bustle that "grays will replace beiges this spring," adding that you should "try grays with a blue or green undertone — think slate, cove, or stormcloud."

Crushing on coral

Whether you're planning a beach vacation, prepping your toes for summer, or simply want a polish color that will make you smile, coral is a perfect choice. This bright hue looks gorgeous on everyone, especially when walking through sandy beaches or poking out through open-toed shoes. This is a color that's vibrant and serene at the same time.

Timeless nude

Like gray, a nude polish for your pedicure is always a good idea. "A nude toe is so versatile," celebrity nail artist Tom Bachik told Who What Wear. "It helps to elongate the foot and leg, looks great in any season, and works perfectly with your favorite shades on your fingers." When in doubt, go for a nude polish.

Eye-popping purple

Spring is right around the corner, which means we'll be seeing lots of purples, pinks, and greens on our toes. Although neutrals are a common choice for manicures and pedicures, we love reaching for a bright color like this purple to add a bit of personality. This is a fun way to bring some color to your nails if you prefer to wear a more neutral tone on your fingers. Not to mention, you can wear purple nail polish for every situation and rock it. 

Orange your toes happy?

Go bold and choose a bright orange polish for your pedicure in 2023. This vibrant color is less pink than coral but still gives you sunny summer vibes. You can also choose an orange with a bit more of a red undertone to wear during the cooler months if you don't want something quite as bright. One thing is certain: Looking down at your orange toes is sure to put a smile on your face!

Viva magenta

Pantone labeled magenta as the it-color of 2023. But, not just any shade of magenta — "Viva Magenta." According to Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman at Pantone Color Institute, this shade "descends from the red family." So, of course, it's going to be one of the hottest colors for pedicures too. This is a bold and rich shade, perfect for any occasion or time of year.

Mint green

If you're looking for a crisp, clean color that is sure to brighten your mood and lift your spirits, this mint green is it. A nail color that's poised to rule 2023, this mint green shade makes us want to dye Easter eggs and enjoy a nice lunch with friends on a patio. Green is a color you can wear all year round, but this minty hue is lovely for spring. 

Bright turquoise

Turquoise is a classic pedicure shade and one that is going to be very hot in 2023. Celebrity manicurist Tom Bachik told Who What Wear that bright colors will reign supreme this year. "The '90s/Y2K-inspired shades will continue, as we're loving pops of unexpected color," he said. Add a touch of nail art, embellishments, or glitter for even more fun.

Pastel pink

While many of us love to go bold when it comes to our pedicure, a pretty pastel pink will always be in style, especially if you like to wear a bolder color on your manicure. Pastel pink works for all seasons because it's a classic, feminine neutral that can go with any outfit.

Classic red

Speaking of bold, a classic red polish will always be a stunning choice when it comes to your pedicure. Maybe you'll opt for a deeper shade of red in winter, while a candy apple red will look stunning for summer. Whatever shade you choose, you can't go wrong with the daring and seductive color. 

Bold black

There is nothing basic about black polish for your pedicure. If you're looking for a neutral shade that will match everything but still be a bit bold, black is the color choice for you. Black is severe enough to be worn for a night on the town yet classic enough to be worn on the beach. Always bet on black if you're unsure what polish color to choose.

Any variation of neon

Whether you're hitting the pool or simply want to make your toes pop, a neon-colored polish is a fun and playful choice. You can choose any color in a neon shade, but we're partial to this gorgeous neon yellow, which is sure to help you participate in the dopamine nail trend. It's like a little bit of sunshine on your toes!
