How to Do Your Own Pedicure at Home
If you don't have the time or money for a trip to the spa for a pedicure, follow these steps for a quick at home fix.
Step 1 Prep
Use a scrub or pumice stone to remove dead, cracked skin from the bottoms of your feet while in the shower.
Step 2 Add Moisture
Immediately after getting out of shower, rub feet and legs with lotion.
Example: Olay Quench Daily Lotion with Shimmer
Step 3 Cuticles
Push back your cuticles if needed.
Step 4 Tools
Make a toe separator with toilet paper and pre-dip cotton swabs with polish remover.
Step 5 Paint
Use base coat and then two coats of color. Add top coat and let dry for at least 30 minutes.
- Rub each nail with remover before painting to remove any lotion.
