A pedicure made up of stuff you have in your house

I was tired of all the endless nonsense everyone was trying to pimp out random products that do the same job as stuff I found in my kitchen cupboards.

Here is a pedi for a fraction of the price.



Instructions

    Step 1

    Every thing I need to start this project. Something to add is a MP3 player with your fave songs. I made this a two hour project but you can probably do it in 1 and a half hours

    To start dip cotton wool in nail polish remover and clean my toe nails. When the polish is really stuck, wrap the cotton wool over your nail with a piece of foil. Do so with each nail for 10 minutes.

    After that I take a lemon (or lemon Juice) and rub it on my toes to whiten the nail a bit.(10 min about) The scrub your feet with the salt. Rinse.

    To soak I have a foot spa but a bowl would do just fine.

    I usually add a bubble bath or a body wash. In the middle of the pic there is weird jelly stuff I got from one of those random cheapo stores.

    I was thinking another thing that would be excellent was Green Tea of jasmine tea

    Here I add water to the spa. The first jug of cold water I fill my fish tank with or water plants with.

    (See the weird jelloness of that stuff? It's weird)

    Soak for 30 minutes

    Keep soaking your other foot to keep the cuticles soft.

    Clip the nails. Remember the keep the sides square to prevent ingrown toe nails.

    I usually use the cuticle cutter to push back the cuticles.

    Usually I leave my toes nails clean for a breather for a day before I repaint.

    Here I give them a coat of clear polish to prevent staining.
