It's just not something that instinctively comes to mind unless you're lucky enough to show off your feet in sandal weather all year long. Sigh. The truth is, both sets of your nails are there for you to get creative with. Even though toenail designs feel so underrated, that doesn't take away from their cool factor. The options are endless. Just think about how fun your feet will look in your favorite open-toed shoes!

From intricate details to abstract designs, here are 50 screenshot-worthy toenail designs, many created by talented Russia-based nail artist Anastasia Maslo, that every nail-art lover will appreciate. Plus, a little encouragement to show some love to these neglected nail beds. Below, we've rounded up a few must-see nail designs for your toes.

Half-Star Cutouts

Don't just save the nail accessories for your fingernails. This half-white, half-golden star design shines bright for a fun design that looks elegant with open-toed heels.

When applying nail jewelry, use tweezers and dip the adornment into clear nail polish like a topcoat. This will act as an adhesive and secure the embellishment.

Mani-Pedi Match

Coordinate your fingers and toes in a subtle way by choosing a plain polish that complements the nail art without perfectly matching.

We love the look of this classic spin on confetti nails over a neutral pinkish-white base.

Sweet and Speckled

The cherries in this pedicure look like a still life. And the robin's egg blue speckled base color is so unexpected, but works.

47 of 50

Metallic Print

A pink metallic print over a light pink base color adds another dimension to an otherwise monotone pedicure.

48 of 50

Accented White

As a dark pedicure is to winter, white is the color of summer pedicures. Separate yourself from the pack with an accent nail, like this watercolor-esque leaf branch.

  • How much do pedicures cost?

    The cost of pedicures tends to fall between $50 to $100, or more. This can vary depending on different factors, such as where you live and the type of pedicure you're looking for. A standard pedicure with no design will likely cost less than a pedicure that involves an intricate design.

  • How long do pedicures take?

    Depending on the design you chose for your pedicure, and how complicated it is, you may find yourself relaxing in the salon chair for anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes.

  • How long do pedicures last?

    Unlike a manicure, pedicures can actually last up to four weeks or more (even without gel polish). Winter pedicures also tend to last longer than when we get them in the summer due to our feet being covered more often.
