40 DIY Nail Art Hacks That Are Borderline Genius

It’s officially time to start wearing open toed shoes, meaning you should probably take off that polish left from last winter, scrub off your dead skin, and get your toes pretty for the public eye. While you could go spend money on a pedicure, I’m too ticklish to let anyone touch my feet. I do it at home instead, and save money, to boot. These easy hacks makes pedicures at home just as luxurious and effective as salon pedicures, for a fraction of the price.

1. Figure out the steps.

Well, this seems pretty easy.

2. Set up a foot bath.

I thought this was a pretty genius and hilarious idea, but if you don’t have a bathtub or a lawn chair, just use a bit pot or bowl (or one for each foot, if that’s more comfortable).

3. Try the Listerine foot soak

4. Make your own foot scrub

I might sub in coconut oil, but that’s because I have a giant bottle of it sitting in my pantry. You can pick your own foot scrub from any of these easy DIY recipes.

5. Deal with your cuticles
