Who says you need to drop a ton of money on a pedicure? You can get a fabulous pedi at home!
Clip nails to just less than a quarter-inch – don’t go too short or you’ll risk an ingrown toenail – then gently file.
You have a couple options – soak in a hot water with a scoop of Epsom salt to reduce swelling or soak in one part milk and two parts water to exfoliate and soften cuticles.
3. Push and Pamper
Rub a drop of oil into each nail (My salon uses CND Solar Oil and I’m hooked!) and gently push back skin along the permiter of the nail with a cuticle pusher. Exfolaite heels and balls of feet – choose a natural pumice stone – then massage a body scrub to even out all roughness.. Then slather on a thick cream to hydrate those dry feet – one with shea butter is best.
USe a base coat, to avoid yellowing of nails and fill in ridges. (Nail Tek Foundation is wonderful.) Then follow with two coats of color. Clean up any mistakes with a angled eye-makeup brush dipped in remover.
