9 Steps for an at Home French Pedicure ...


French pedicures are gorgeous, and if you're looking for a terrific way to pamper yourself and your cute little feet, you can do them right at home. I mean really, who doesnโ€™t love a good pedicure. Of your course there are times when going to a salon for a pedicure just isnโ€™t in the budget. Knowing how to do an at home French pedicure comes in handy.

1. Gather up Your Supplies

You are going to need a few things for your at home French pedicure.

It is best to get everything together before you get started.

You donโ€™t want to walk around your house with wet feet looking for a cotton ball.

To do your own at home pedicure you need a foot bath, Epsom salt, essential oil, foot scrub, cuticle stick, nail clippers, polish remover, file, polish, nail line strip, cotton balls, lotion, toe spacers and towels.

2. Footbath

Start by filling the bath with the hottest water you can handle.

Add in some Epsom salt and your favorite essential oil.

Lavender is a good oil for relaxing.

3. Foot Scrub

The next step in your at home pedicure is a foot scrub.

Use a foot scrub on your wet feet to soften up calluses and get rid of dry, tough skin.

Follow up by rinsing the scrub off in the footbath and drying off your feet.

4. Cuticles

While the nails and skin are soft form the hot bath you want to push the cuticles back.

To do this, use an angled cuticle stick and gently push down the skin growing up over the base of the nail.

Finish by applying a little bit of oil or lotion on the cuticles to keep them moisturized.

This is an essential part of French pedicures, so that you can make the final steps work correctly.
