Wanna cure your pocket blues? You can get a professional summer pedicure at home by following these at home pedicure tips.
Start by removing any nail polish using the cotton balls and nail polish remover.
Next, trim nails with toenail clipper. The best shape for toe nails is straight across. This will help prevent painful hangnails. Smooth out edges with a nail file.
Clean your toenails with the nail brush and soak for ten to fifteen minutes in the water basin. For extra relaxation, add a couple of tablespoons of Epsom salt. This step will not only feel great, it will also help soften cuticles and calluses on the bottom of the feet.
Apply a foot scrub. Keep on for ten minutes. Rinse mask off with water and foot file to thoroughly exfoliate calluses and other rough spots on the bottom of the feet.
Wrap a little bit of cotton from a cotton ball around the edge of the orange stick. Apply cuticle oil and gently push cuticles back with an orange stick.
Apply a base coat. This is especially important if using a dark nail polish to help prevent staining on the nail of the toe.
Pick out a favorite color and apply two coats. A bright fun color is great for the toes! Try a hot pink or a personal favorite, bright orange.
Once the color has dried, apply a top coat or clear nail polish to prevent chipping and to help the polish last longer.
Once the toenails have dried, apply a foot lotion to keep the rough patches away. Wear a pair of socks or spa booties to keep the moisture locked in and to get the ultimate benefits from a pedicure.
