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>
I was pretty skeptical about this, but it seems to be all the rage on Pinterest. Why not?
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>
Any combination of oils and citrus will work, and the warm oil on your toes will feel straight up luxurious.
6. Make your own moisturizer>
Making your own lotion is a great way to save money and save your feet from unnecessary chemicals–try out this recipe.
7. Give yourself a massage>
Use this reflexology chart as a reference to get the most out of your massage. Always pay special attention the the buttocks region.
8. How to paint your nails the right way.>
No, seriously. Do it this way.
9. Get the most out of your nail strips.>
Nail strips are super stretchy, and you can give yourself a pedicure with just two strips.
10. Protect yourself from smudges>
Have you tried the Pam thing? It shockingly works to set your polish and speed up your drying time.
