All women out there love a great pedicure, especially when sandal season rolls around, but I love my feet looking perfect regardless of what time of year it is. And I know many ladies out there feel the same way that I do. Sadly, a trip to the salon can be time consuming and really expensive. Many of us don’t have the time or the money to spend on a pedicure.
But don’t worry ladies I have a wonderful at-home pedicure that’s fast, inexpensive, and will have your feet looking, and feeling, absolutely perfect!

Step 1: Create a Nice Shape

Step 1: Create a Nice Shape
First, remove any old polish. After clipping nails to your desired length, file them in one direction using even strokes, then smooth surfaces with a buffer.

Step 2: Clear Away Imperfections

Use a dry-skin foot file to whittle down stubborn calluses or rough patches on the heels and balls of your feet, leaving the areas soft.

Step 3: Soak Feet

Fill a basin with warm water and add a cup of warm milk to help slough off dead skin (the lactic acid does the trick). Then, exfoliate with a grainy scrub—do your legs, too. Gently push cuticles back and clean under toenails with an orange stick. For a real spa experience, add Epsom salts or essential oils like lavender to the soak instead of milk.

Step 4: Massage and Moisturize

Wipe off excess cream and oily residue from nail beds with a cotton pad soaked in polish remover. Separate toes with rolled paper towel.

Step 5: Apply Polish

Start with a base coat, then add two thin layers of color. Seal with a topcoat. Allow at least 20 minutes drying time. Revive with a new layer every other day.
