15 Steps to a Great Pedicure at Home

Sometimes, it’s the simple pleasures in life that make us happy. Pampering, even for just an hour, can make all the difference. If you’ve never had a pedicure, or it’s been ages since the last one; you’ll agree it is the most soothing and relaxing hour you’ll probably ever spend in a salon. However, you can also derive the same pleasure at home. Wait until the kids have gone to bed; and proceed to your bathroom. Then, follow these home pedicure tips for moms.

  1. Light an aromatherapy candle, and place it on the countertop in your bathroom.
  2. Fill your tub with warm water. Add either Epsom salt or your favorite bath salt.
  3. Using cotton balls, remove old polish from your toenails with nail polish remover.
  4. Soak your feet for ten to fifteen minutes.
  5. Using a pumice stone to rub the heels and balls of your feet to remove dead skin. If you have a soft brush, you can use that as well.
  6. Dry your feet thoroughly.
  7. Cut your toenails.
  8. Using your favorite moisturizer, massage your cuticles and both feet.
  9. Gently push back your cuticles with an orange stick, and remove the excess cuticles.
  10. Massage your legs with the moisturizer as well.
  11. One foot at a time, apply clear nail hardener.
  12. Apply your favorite color nail polish.
  13. Apply a second coat of nail hardener.
  14. Add cotton balls in between toes until nails are dry.
  15. Use flip-flops if you need to walk around, or simply relax in your scented bathroom until nails are dry.

Wasn’t that a wonderful experience? Do you feel relaxed? Home pedicures can be just as soothing as going to a spa or salon; the only difference is it doesn’t cost anything except the price of a small bottle of nail polish.
