Love how your feet feel after you get a pedicure? Don’t love how much it costs, though? Well, cheer up, because you can easily (and cost-efficiently) give your toes some spa time in your own house!
Here’s a list of everything you’ll need:
Bathtub or bucket (big enough for your feet)
Nail polish remover
Base coat nail polish
Top coat nail polish
Your favorite nail polish color OR a Sally Hansen French Manicure set, if you prefer the French look
Step 1: Run hot water in your bathtub or fill up your bucket with hot water. Soak your feet for 5-10 minutes.
Step 2: Take out one foot and remove old nail polish, if you have any. Replace foot in water, and repeat with second foot.
Step 3: Take out one foot and scrub with moistened pumice stone, especially your heel and the ball of your foot. Replace foot in water, and repeat with other foot.
Step 4: If your toenails need to be clipped, clip each one and file nails to desired shape. Replace in water.
Step 5: Remove on foot from water and dry on towel. Spread lotion over foot; place foot in sock. Repeat with other foot. Leave feet in socks overnight or for at least 2 hours.
Step 6: Now it’s time to paint those nails! Start out with a base coat (make sure it’s good quality–base coat & top coat quality matter more than the regular color if you want your polish to stay put), then paint on at least 2 coats of the desired color. Allow color to dry. Then finish it off with an even layer of top coat, and you’ve got soft, pretty feet for summer sandals!
