At Home Pedi

Happy Friday ladies I hope this week was successful for all of you. For today's blog I would like to discuss how give yourself a wonderful pedicure at the comfort of your own home. Let's take a look.

Soaking the Feet: Okay, first thing is first, make sure you place your feet in nice warm water, or the foot massage. Leave your feet in the water for about five minutes, and just relax. After that, you will want you use a pumice stone to scrape your feet. I promise you will feel the difference after scrubbing them. Pumice stones aid in the removal of callouses or harden skin around the heel.

Cut and File: This step is quite simple. However, I recommend you cut your toenails after having had your feet soaked in water for a while; water makes the nails softer and therefore easier to cut.  After you have cut you nails you want to make sure you remove your cuticle! Removing the cuticle is a must; it forms great part of your overall look, making your nails look clean. There are several ways to go about removing the cuticle; you can even use your nail clipper. Once you have completed these steps you want to shape the nails with a nail filler so they look delicate and pretty.

Polish: Finally, once you have completed all the steps above, pick your nail polish. Personally I think a simple French pedi looks very pretty and classy. If you decide to go for the French pedi, you can even add a design to your big toe to make the overall look pop out. If you are a talented nail designer, than by all means go for it and make a design. If you're like me and love nail deigns but can't draw them yourself, do not worry, there is nail sticker you can use.

Top Coat: Finally make sure you add a top coat to seal the look. I recommend buying a good quality top coat to guarantee its performance. Remember cheap isn't always best.

Alright ladies, that concludes the end of our discussion. I hope you all take care of yourself from time to time. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
