There are some popular products that you can use to get a professional pedicure at home.

First, you need to slim and shape your nails. Use the nail polish remover to remove the old nail polish and carefully trim your nails. Make sure you cut straight and don’t cut too much at the corners, as this can lead to painful ingrowing toes. Use a nail file to figure them into the shape you want.
Treat your feet to a nice foot bath. In a basin or tub, pour enough warm water to cover your ankles and add some bath salt. You can also add a few drops of essential oil of your choice. Also, put some smooth pebbles in the water. These provide a gentle massage when you place your feet on them. Soak your feet and reduce for 15-20 minutes. Dry them with a towel.
The next step is peeling. When you finish with the foot bath, pat your feet dry and rub some cuticle cream onto the base of each nail. Leave it on for a few minutes. For the time being, use a foot scrub and remove any dry and dead skin cells. Be firm but don’t scratch too much. Then wipe off the cuticle cream and carefully push back the cuticle with a cuticle pusher.
When you’ve finished scrubbing, wash and hydrate your feet. Hydration helps smooth, moisturize, and protect the skin from cracking. Apply a generous portion to the feet and massage in well. Regular foot massages also help stimulate nerve endings, improve blood circulation, and nourish the skin and muscles of the foot.
Now your nails are ready to be clothed. Paint them with a color of your excellent. Always apply a basecoat. Please wait for it to dry, and then use a coat of nail polish. Let it dry completely before applying the next layer. You can also liven up your feet with a nice anklet or toe rings! Makes the nail polish last longer.
