Fast and Easy Home Pedicures

You’ve been running around barefoot most of the summer and your little toes have the wear to prove it. Want to get the spruced up for a big event or simply want to treat yourself? A DIY pedicure is a simple (and affordable) way to show your feet some love.

Just follow these easy steps. 

Start with a Soak

Fill your bathtub with warm water and a small bit of good smelling soap. Dip your feet on in and let them soak for 2 – 5 minutes.

Why not a big basin of water like at a spa? You certainly can go that route if you want, but it’s more work. We like to keep things nice and simple.

File

While your feet are still wet, use a large foot file to smooth the rough areas of your foot.

Scrub

Next, select your favorite relaxing foot scrub. Go for something with a scent you love! Scrub your foot and up your leg in gentle circular motions to exfoliate and promote blood flow.

Shape

Using a good pair of toenail clippers, clip each nail so they are straight across. Then, use a nail file to gently curve each nail.

Polish

Place toe separators on both your feet. If you don’t have a set like they use in the spa, Amazon sells them for cheap. You can also use rolled up toilet paper in a pinch. Brush each nail with a thin layer of base coat. Allow it to try for 1 – 2 minutes.

Add a thin layer of your desired color. Let it dry for 1 – 2 minutes. Add a second layer of your desired color, letting it dry for 1 – 2 minutes. Add a layer of clear top coat. Let your nails dry for 10 – 15 minutes.

Moisturize

Once your nails are fully dry (it may take a bit longer than 15 minutes), gently rub your feet with a moisturizing lotion.
