Pedicure At Home

First remove applied nail polish completely by using nail polish remover. Soak the cotton band with acetone remover and then remove the old polish. If the color is not coming off the press the cotton on to the nail and let it soak for a while.

While removing nail polish using cotton balls, traces of cotton are left on your nails. So try using cotton bands to avoid with this problem.

Use high quality clippers to cut your toenails. Cut your nails straight across, leaving about 1/8" of length. Do not let your nail extend over the tip of your toe.

If you want a soft square shape, file the nail around the corners in one direction. Use emory boards and not metal files, as metal files rip nails. The smoother surface is for smoothing the nail edge while the coarser surface is for shortening and shaping nails.

After that fill a tub with lukewarm water(warmth shoud be in accordance with comfort zone). Add bath salts, aromatherapy oils or Epsom salts and allow your feet to soak in for few minutes. As lactic acid in the milk loosens dead skin. So add about quarter cup of milk to the warm water.

Apply cuticle remover to the base of each nail and rub in. Wait for a minute and then using an orangewood stick, slowly push the skin back where it meets the nail.

Use cuticle nippers to trim loose skin. Do not cut your toe flesh.
Use an exfoliating body or foot scrub and a foot file or a wet pumice stone and remove the dead on the balls and heels of your feet. The idea is the smooth and not the remove. If your foot is turning bright red then stop. This means that you are scrubbing too hard.

Dry your feet thoroughly including between the toes and apply nourishing foot cream. Rub the feet and rehydrate cuticles by rubbing a little cuticle oil.

Use an acetone remover to get rid of the extra oils on the nails. Apply a thin base coat and using three strokes, one down the middle and one on each side. Do not paint cuticles. Apply three coats totally and then apply a thin topcoat. Use orangewood stick wrapped in cotton dipped in nail polish remover to remove excess nail polish.

Let your nails dry completely before you wear shoes.
