Sundays have became at home pedicure days of late for me much to the horror of my Podiatrist. As I am diabetic my medical professionals insist I consult a Podiatrist for all foot care issues. God forbid I ever cut my own nails or let a Beauty Therapist touch my feet (which regardless of what anyone says happens once a month every month lol).
Anyway my at home pedicures are pretty basic but I love doing them because I like my feet to look nice and feels smooth.
Step 1 - A nice foot soak for around 15 minutes in a bucket filled with warm water, a few drops of essential oil and a fizzing Lush Bath Bomb.
Step 2 - Dry off feet and attack heels with a foot file to remove any rough or hard skin. Don't be shy get in there are file the crap out of them.
Step 3 - Apply some Solar Oil to cuticles and gently push cuticles back.
Step 4 - Massage a scrub all over feet for a few minutes. Then rinse off in a bucket of water and dry off feet.
Step 5 - Apply a coat of Creative Nail Designs Super Sticky Base Coat.
Step 6 - Apply a coat of desired nail colour, allow to dry and repeat.
Step 7 - Apply a coat of either OPI's Drip Dry or Creative Nail Designs Air Dry. Allow nails to completely dry.
Step 8 - Massage a rich foot cream or body butter into feet and pop on some socks to allow the lotion to thoroughly moisturise the feet.
Nail polish colour of the week is OPI - Lincoln Park After Dark!
