Relax your feet
The first step for a perfect homemade pedicure begins with releasing stress of your feet. Prepare a bowl of warm water. Sit in a comfortable chair and put the bowl in front of you and soak your feet into that warm water for about 15 minutes.
Add salt in water
Add some salt in that warm water to soften and cleanse the feet. Let salt dissolve in water. This will help you to clear the dead skin and calluses. Rubbing and massaging the feet with salt will accelerate your peripheral blood flow as well. Salt granules should remove any dead skin for a softer look and touch. You can also use a soft brush to get rid of excess of dead skin
In case you did not know, a few drops of vinegar will make wonders with your toenails. You can forget about yellow nails if you wipe them with vinegar. Make sure that your nails are clean, without any transparent nail polish, for this trick to work.
While your feet are still in the water, rub them with a pumice stone to remove thickened skin. Do it firmly, yet gently, so as not to irritate or harm the skin. Get rid of those corns! Wipe your feet with a clean towel. Apply coarse cream on the cuticle to soften them. Your feet will have a neat look. Use a stick to push particularly stubborn cuticles to facilitate the nail polish process.
Prepare the tools for cutting and shaping your nails- nail cutter and nail file. The first thing you have to do is to trim your toenails straight. Nail corners should always be square, so as to avoid incarnation. Do not ever cut the side of the nail! After all toenails were cut and given shape finish each nail tip with a nail file. This will make the nail edges smoother.
Use a special nail file to gently finish the surface of each nail. Be as gently as you can, because you do not want to harm in any way the deep layer of your nails. Apply clear nail polish wait a few minutes, apply color polish and wait for half an hour to prevent smudging.
