How To: Do Your Own Pedicure at Home

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.
