The Perfect Home Pedicure

My Favorite Summer Fashion Items

Maybe you love a good pedicure but just don't want to spend the amount necessary for a professional pedicure? or maybe you aren't sure how to achieve an excellent pedicure on your own? I'm sure you have most of these items on hand which makes giving yourself a pedicure so easy! Plus you can do this anytime of the day or night and your don't need an appointment! So here is the 6 simple steps to creating the perfect home pedicure.

1. Peppermint Foot Scrub - Soak your feet in water for a few minutes and then apply a foot scrub like this one (this could be done at the end of your shower). Massage along your feet to remove the rough, dry skin. If your feet have gotten very bad it could take a few times to get them back to perfect. Rinse and dry off.

2. Sephora Foot File - Now gently use a foot file to remove even more of the unwanted dry, rough skin.

3. Foot Beauty Cream - Next, you will want to apply some kind of non-greasy lotion like this to moisturize your feet and to help them remain soft and smooth.

4. Deborah Lippman Cuticle Remover and Cuticle Pusher - Now use a cuticle remover like this Deborah Lippman one to soften and remove dry, dead cuticle skin. Use the round edge of a cuticle pusher to aide in this process.

5. Beach Bum Blu Essie Nail Polish - Pick an awesome nail polish color and apply to dry nails. I'm partial to slightly metallic, shiny polishes like this Beach Bum Blu. I like the extra shine and I think it helps to hide my mistakes.

6. Julep Quick Dry Drops - If you are impatient like I am when it comes to waiting for polish to dry use some quick dry drops. I keep these Julep ones on hand and they really work. After painting your nails you just drop 1-2 drops on each nail and wait like a minute and they are dry.

  3. Great tips! I've not yet tried the quick dry drops but they are such a good idea after a pedicure. I'm on the look out for a new foot file too!
