IDEAL HOME PEDICURE

IDEAL HOME PEDICURE Posted on June 23, 201616 Comments

Happy National Pink Day! Apologies to Mean Girls, but this year, girls wear pink on Thursday. In celebration, we decided to do a pedicure of our own in our favorite shade of pink. The lady time was not only a great opportunity for bonding as we laughed at our messed up toes, but we were able to give our feet a much-needed pampering. Below, I give you a few steps and products that will make your feet feel like queens. Because who doesn’t want their feet to feel that awesome?

HOW TO DO THE IDEAL AT HOME PEDICURE

1) Epson Salt

This simple ingredient is just as great for a foot soak as it is for a bath. The salts soften the skin on the bottoms of your feet, making them ideal for exfoliating. The warm water will begin to relax your muscles before the real pampering begins.

2) Pumice Stones

Pumice stones are life savers! If you do not already have several in your house, it may be time to go spend a few dollars on yourself. Aside from being a helpful cleaning aid, pumice stones are perfect to use for pedicures. This is the part where you get to say, “Bye, bye calluses!” After that softening, the pumice stone should wipe away all of your troubles and calluses.

3) Foot Scrub

The next step to your at home pedicure is a foot scrub. Use some sort of exfoliating scrub and give your feet a nice massage. I know with my feet starting to swell, this was my favorite part! (Too bad I won’t be able to reach them much longer!) This is a great time to use a brush to make sure to get any dirt from under your toenails. Now is time to move from the water.

4) Using The Nail File

I know one of the things I can’t stand is when I cut my nails too short. This creates discomfort and makes my toenails look deformed. To avoid this, do less work with the nail clippers and more with the file. The nail file will allow you to get the perfect shape and look you want!

5) Vaseline

If you are like me, painting nails becomes a battle. I have to fight the brush from contacting the edges of my skin and then rush to wipe them off when it does. To avoid this, rub vaseline around the edges of your skin. After you finish painting, the paint will rub right off!

 

I love looking at freshly painted toes! These tips should help you give yourself the best pedicure in support of National Pink Day! Before we finish, here are a few interesting facts about the color pink:

  1. The Chinese were unaware of the color pink until they begin interacting with Western civilization.
  2. The color gained its name in the late 17th century from a blooming plant called pinks.
  3. “Tickled pink” is a phrase keyed to mean the subject was feeling joyous.
  4. A pink carnation (my favorite flower) means, “I will never forget you.”
  5. The sight of pink helps suppress anger.

  1. I just so happen to have bright pink nails today! I love using Epsom Salt for a relaxing foot soak. I usually go to the nail salon, but every once in a while I’ll do my own pedicure at home.

  2. Epsom salt soaks are so good for your skin. Not to mention, they’re very relaxing. It’s so nice to soak your feet.

  3. My oldest daughter loves the color pink. She had to do a poetry project in school and she did it on the color pink. I also hate cutting my toenails too far, drives me crazy (I can’t stop touching it).

  4. I love the bright pinks you used, even the lighter one just looks fantastic! My toes are currently red, will have to do this home pedicure with a different prettier color like pink!

  5. My two girls and I often do pedicures together. They love it, way more than I do but they feel pampered and love the time we spend doing!
