Easy Tips For A Quality At-Home Pedicure
Spring is finally here and warmer temperatures bring out summer gear including sandals. So that means a good pedicure is in order. A visit to a salon is great, but if you can’t make it to your local salon, it is possible to get a high-quality pedicure at home, DIY style!
1. Prep. Remove old nail polish/nail art using a nail polish remover.
2. Soak. Fill a basin with warm water and some bubble bath or bath salts and let your feet soak for at least five minutes to soften the skin. Using a foot paddle, exfoliate anywhere you have dry, rough skin. If you don’t have a lot of time, use a tool such as Amope Pedi Perfect Wet Dry Electric Pedicure Foot File and Callus Remover and follow it up with a quick foot soak.
3. Scrub. Use a quality foot scrub and massage the product onto your calves and feet to help remove any lingering dry, rough skin. Rinse.
4. Shape & File. Use a nail clipper and trim your nails to the desired length. Then file nails.
5. Moisturize. Pat your calves and feet dry and moisturize well with a hydrating foot moisturizer.
6. Apply cuticle oil. This will help strengthen nails and ensure a longer-lasting pedicure.
7. Polish. Using a toe separator, apply a base coat to each nail then follow-up with two coats of your desired nail polish.
