The “High School Musical” star recently posted a picture of the manicure she got in preparation for this weekend’s event, which cost a whopping $160 USD (or roughly $205 CAD).

With the world’s largest marathon, the TCS New York City Marathon, happening on Yahoo Beauty’s front steps this Sunday, we’ve consulted the foot care experts — a podologist (a medical pedicure expert) a physical therapist, a personal trainer, a podiatrist, and a nail salon owner. Before the Marathon Get proper footwear “That doesn’t mean expensive footwear,” Portland-based physical therapist Alice Holland, who has run two marathons and regularly works with runners, tells Yahoo Beauty. “Draw an outline of your foot, and make sure that outline can fit into the shoe fit that you’re buying.” Like wearing pointy-toed stilettos, wearing too-tight running shoes can cause an unattractive deformity called “hallux rigidus,” in which the big toe starts pointing inwards.

Make grey polish your go-to neutral this fall.
