8 simple steps for perfect pedicure at home:
1st step:Remove polish
3rd step Soaking feet:
4th step: Cuticle care
5th step: ScrubbingFifth step is scrubbing your feet.
Apply an exfoliating body or foot scrub to a foot file or wet pumice stone to slough away the dead skin on the balls and heels of your feet.You'll want to scrub the balls, bottoms and sides of your heels and around the toes. To get the most leverage, sit on the side of a bathtub, facing inward. Remember the pedicure motto we read about once, "smooth, don't remove." You'll want to stop if your foot turns bright red (this means you've scrubbed too hard). Remember, that tough skin is there for a reason.
6th step: Moisturizing
Dry feet thoroughly including between the toes and rub in a thick moisturizer or foot cream Massage the moisturizer into the feet and the calves. You can go all out by rehydrating cuticles by rubbing in a dab of cuticle oil.
7th step: Polishing toe
Use acetone remover to get rid of any excess oils on the nails. Apply a thin base coat using 3 strokes, one down the middle, then one on each side. Don't paint the cuticle. Wait a minute before adding 2 coats of your favorite polish, then finish with a thin top coat . Clean up any errors with an orangewood stick wrapped in cotton and dipped in polish remover.Let nails dry for at least 40 minutes.
8th step: Finishing touch
Finally after nails have dried, you can really go all out and spritz with a moisturizing oil This sets your polish and moisturizes your cuticles.
