I was pampered a few weeks ago by my amazing spouse. As a reward for meeting a personal goal Jake rolled out the Pedicure supplies and treated me to the bliss of a full Spa Pedi.
Heaven. My feet and little toes look so spectacular I almost wore flip flops…it was 30 degrees outside.
I’ve been doing these treatments at home for at least 10 years. It wasn’t until he began that I realized everyone has their own method or ‘plan’ as Jake put it. Here’s the method I’ve been following for more than decade (taken from this book).
Spa Pedi At HomeTools:
Clippers A heavier grade nail file Cuticle pusher backer Teeny tiny scissors
Step One Remove polish, trim and file nail edge
Step Two Soak feet in warm water
Step Three Gently push cuticles back, trim any hangnails and exfoliate feet
Step Four Massage feet with lotion
Step Five Wash with soapy water to remove lotion and clean nails
Step Six Using toe separators paint base, color x2, and top coat-let each coat dry completely.
Step Seven More lotion
Step Eight Refuse to do anything for 45 mins to 8 hours claiming ‘my toes are wet’ and relax.
