First you need to clip your toe nails to the length that you like and file them and shape them. I like mine square.
Then take the polish remover and a cotton ball and remove all your old polish. Now is also the time to apply cuticle oil if you need it and massage it into your cuticles.
Soak your feet in the foot bath for 5 - 10 minutes, or until you feel like taking them out. You really just want to soften up the skin to make it easier to slough off the dead/excess skin.
Take your foot grater (I don't know what the proper name is, so feel free to correct me on that) or pumice stone and slough off all the dead skin and callouses that you may or may not have. Then rinse in the foot bath. Also, this is the time to push your cuticles back if you need to.
Use your scrub and work it into your feet and up the ankles to buff out the skin and make sure that your feet are super smooth.
Take your lotion and work it into your feet and up the ankles. This is the part people tend to love, so take your time and really work it in, taking time to relax your feet and such. You deserve it.
And voila! Happy healthy looking feet! No more icky dead skin or callouses going on here.
And all that's left is to paint your toe nails. I used a base coat, 2 coats of a nude polish, a white polish for the tips, and I used a pink polish for the flower.
To make the flower, I just took my pink polish and put 5 dots in a little circle for the petals, pulling the polish in toward the center. Then I took an orange wood stick and dipped some white polish on it and sliced it through the center of the flower for some oomph.
And this concludes my DIY at home pedicure, I hope you liked it. There really is nothing like a pedicure to get you ready for spring. I'm ready to go get my flip flops, don't know about you. So what do you guys do to get ready for spring? I'd love to hear about it in the comments. And don't forget to check me out on Twitter @KashmirSeaside and on Facebook @KalamityJaneKosmetics. Til next time!
