Giving your toe nails a pedicure without going to a professional salon will save you time and money. A home pedicure will not take much of your time if you follow these easy steps that give your feet a vibrant look.
1- Prepare a basin filled with sufficient amount of warm water, enough to soak your feet. Pour in the basin desired amount of foot soak, bath salts, or Epsom salts.
2- Wet a cotton ball with nail polish remover or acetone. Use it to remove old polishes from your toe nails.
3- C lip and file nails. Length and shape of the nails depend on one’s preference.
4- Soak your feet in the basin filled with warm water for at least 10 minutes. You can soak them much longer if you wish to.
5- Buff both feet with a small brush. The process will not only remove dead skin but will soften your feet as well.
6- Apply foot scrub cream to your feet to further soften and exfoliate your heels and rough spots.
7- Take off your feet from the basin. Then, towel dry them. When done, massage your feet with a foot massage lotion.
8- Push your cuticle back along the nails with an orange-wood stick. After soaking your feet the cuticles are already supple.
9- To strengthen the nails and avoid breakages, apply a base coat. See to it that ridges and uneven surfaces of your nails are properly covered
10- Apply your chosen nail polish color. Let the first coat dry up before doing a second nail polish application.
11- Apply a top coat.
