Summer is in full swing and that means it’s sandal weather! I like to change my nail colour often, and I’m not a huge fan of going for manicures and pedicures all the time so I thought I would share how I do my own at home pedicure. I absolutely love being outside in the summer, because I work in an office most days of the week I try to do as much as possible outdoors…yep, that even includes my pedicures! This past weekend I set up a pedicure station on the porch and gave myself a true spa experience.
The supplies I use (in order):
1. A foot/salt soak – I use a lavender soak
2. A foot scrub – I use Dr. Scholl’s Pumice Foot Scrub
3. Toe nail care tools – a file, clippers, and a cuticule pusher like this one from Quo
4. The MICRO Pedi for smoothing your heels and rough parts of your feet
5. A foot moisturizer – I use Dr. Scholl’s Ultra Overnight Foot Cream
6. Nail polish and top coat of your choice! This day I was using Essie in Blanc
I start by soaking my feet in warm water with foot salt soak crystals dissolved. This gets the skin around your toes soft and also gets your feet nice and clean. Once my feet have soaked for about 10 minutes, I use a foot scrub to remove dead skin.
Let your feet dry before using the MICRO Pedi on your heels. Meanwhile, work on the toes. I use a clipper to cut my toe nails to the desired length and a file to smooth them out. A cuticle pusher tool is great for cleaning under your nails and also in the corners to take away any excess skin. Once my toes are looking great I turn my attention back to my feet with the MICRO Pedi.
The MICRO Pedi is a pretty amazing tool! It takes care of what you didn’t think was possible to do on your own. It files and smooths your foot by spinning a mineral roller over the rough parts of your skin. It is incredibly gentle and even stops if you are pressing down on your foot too hard. It takes just seconds to have significantly smoother skin.
After using the MICRO Pedi I use a foot cream to moisturize my feet before applying nail polish. Always apply a clear top coat on your toes to make sure your pedicure lasts as long as possible!
Relax while your polish dries, and if you have to go out, make sure to wear flip flops. Enjoy your fresh new feet!
