The relaxing bath

Start by removing all traces of nail polish from your feet. Nothing could be simpler: let your feet soak in a mixture of warm water and sea salt or essential oil for a little while. This step helps clean your feet, soften the skin and reduce the feeling of tiredness in your feet.

Foot sanding

Regularly file your feet, paying particular attention to the heels and the outer side of the big toe. The movement is always done in the same direction and gently so as not to damage the epidermis.


Thanks to the wooden stick, gently push back your unsightly skin. Pushing back your cuticles during your pedicure has two advantages: allowing your nail to continue to grow properly and clearing the edge of the nail in order to apply semi-permanent varnish.

The scrub

Remove dead skin with an exfoliating gel or a homemade foot scrub. This step stimulates blood circulation and makes the skin soft.

Cutting toenails

To cut your toenails, nothing could be simpler. let’s stay classic for the pedicure! Cut your toenails at the tips and straight. Take a file and proceed parallel then perpendicularly, tilting the file downwards. Be careful not to cut your nails short!


To maintain beautiful, strong and shiny nails, you need to hydrate them. To nourish them daily, take a moment to massage the tips of your nails with a moisturizing cream or moisturizing vegetable oil. This little gesture will help you give vitality to your nails after a while!

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure and pedicure sets to care for your nails.
