Do you get regular pedicures at your local salon? I’m guilty of getting pedicures in the past and paying at least $30 (after tip) each time. When I stopped to think about how much money I was spending on something that I could do myself and for free at home, I quickly decided to cut back on professional pedicures and save money instead. Although I do miss professional pedicures slightly, I feel better about saving hundreds of dollars each year with my own DIY pedicures.
DIY pedicures at home are super easy and fun if you have the right kinds of supplies. These supplies typically are inexpensive and once you have a great set of pedicure tools in your collection, you can enjoy your own pedicures in no time.
Here are my at home pedicure essentials:
- cotton balls
- nail polish remover
- nail polish (at least two to three colors, usually a pink or coral for spring/summer and red for winter)
- toe nail clippers
- foot lotion
When I begin my pedicure, I remove any old nail polish with nail polish remover and cotton balls. Then, I soak my feet in the tub and wash them really well with soap. After I soak my feet, I towel dry them and begin my pedicure. I start with my heels and work my way up to the toenails.
I look forward to my at home pedicures these days. My box of pedicure essentials helps me to keep my feet looking their very best!
