Want to give yourself a pedicure at home ; follow these steps and get adorable feet.

Tools you require are:

  • Cotton pads and swabs
  • Nail polish remover (with moisturizer and must be of good company)
  • Nail clippers
  • Nail file
  • Nail brush
  • Foot Basin ( if you don’t have no need to worry, your bathtub will work too)
  • Cuticle Oil
  • Cuticle clippers
  • Cuticle pusher
  • Orange wood stick (used as a cuticle pusher)
  • Pumice Stone (sandpaper type is better than usual stone)
  • Cotton or foam toe separators
  • Base coat
  • Nail polish
  • Top coat
  • Moisturizer

First of all remove existing polish with nail polish remover and cotton pads. Use a cotton swab to remove any lingering polish near the cuticles.

Then trim nails to the desire length using clippers and filing in one direction shape nails with a file. Avoid trimming and filing your nails once you’ve soaked them. They become too soft and can easily ripped.

If your nails are long, a nail brush may come in handy to remove any dirt under the nail. Be sure to use a soft bristle nail brush.

Next, soak your feet in a foot basin filled with warm soapy water. Once the skin has had a chance to soften, use the pumice stone to remove dead skin and smooth calloused areas. (Be careful not to scrub too hard, if you remove too much skin your feet will be raw.

While your feet are still soft from the soapy bath apply cuticle oil to further soften and moisturize your cuticles. Using the orange wood stick gently push your cuticles back. If you must, use the cuticle clippers to clean up any unsightly cuticles or hangnails. Make sure your tools are sterilized before and after use, as tools can be a breeding medium for germs.

Dry your feet thoroughly and moisturize. Peppermint moisturizer works well as it cools the skin and has a pain relieving and antiseptic effect. Look for anything containing peppermint oil. Quickly clean each nail with nail polish remover to remove moisturizer from the tops of the nails. Place cotton or foam toe separators between each toe to prevent the polish from being smudged.

Next apply a base coat and let dry. Base coats typically dry fast, so you may not have to wait more than 2 minutes before applying the polish. Apply at least two coats of polish and let dry between each. The nail should not be tacky between each application; otherwise, the next layer you apply will be gummy. Apply a top coat to help prevent chips and scratches. One coat should suffice.

Finally, let dry thoroughly before slipping into a pair of fabulous heels and enjoy.
