Finally, here are some amazing pedicure tips and tricks from beauty expert Skyy Hadley!
First, the tools you need to get a spa-like pedicure at home:
·        Cuticle remover
·        Cuticle pusher
·        Cuticle nipper
·        Nail clippers
·        Nail file
·        Nail polish remover
·        Cotton balls or pads
·        Base and top coat

Second, here is a step-by-step guide to get the perfect pedicure:
·        Apply cuticle remover and allow it to sit for the time indicated on the packaging
·        Using a cuticle pusher, push cuticles back away from the base of your toenails. Clean feet with your body wash or soap to wash away cuticle remover
·        Use a cuticle nipper to very carefully remove any loose cuticle or hangnails. You don’t want to cut into your cuticles. Nicking this area can lead to infection.
·        If necessary, trim nails down to a good length
·        Use a nail file to smooth and shape your toenails
·        Using a cotton ball or pad, wipe each toenail with nail polish remover to remove excess oils
·        Next, apply a base coat to all toenails
·        Add nail color, apply two coats
·        Clean up, use a nail brush or an orangewood stick and polish remover to remove any polish slips
·        Finish by applying a clear top coat to protect your work

To make your feet less rough/sough stick your feet in a tub of warm water for about 15 minutes. You can add a capful of distilled white vinegar and/or a few drops of tea tree oil if you’re concerned about fungal infections. For water retention or particularly achy feet, toss in a couple of tablespoons of Epsom salts. Next, to slough off the dead skin, gently dry your feet, then have at the bottom of your feet with a serious foot file. I recommend using a Ped Egg to get rid of the dead skin.

For applying polish to prevent chipping or smudging reapply a layer or clear topcoat every two to three days. I recommend using two particular products to make your pedicure last longer:

·        Lauren B. Gel-Like Top Coat gives you a long-lasting gleam without all the harmful chemicals.

·        Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil increases nail flexibility and helps softens nails.
Which of these awesome items catch your eye, darlings?
