Get the perfect at-home pedicure with tips from beauty expert, Skyy Hadley

Check out our guide to get the perfect at-home pedicure with 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: 
•        Lauren B. Gel-Like Top Coat gives you a long-lasting gleam without all the harmful chemicals

•        Sally Hansen Vitamin E Nail & Cuticle Oil increases nail flexibility and helps softens nails
