At Home Pedicure Tips from Skyy Hadley

Are you looking for the perfect at-home pedicure with Spring right around the corner. Here are some tips from beauty expert, Skyy Hadley.

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
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:
