Are you thinking about doing your own pedicure? I used to spend a lot of money to have other people do it for me in shops. That is, until I learned how to do it myself. And here are a list of supplies that I started with. Take a look at these before you even take your shoes off!
- 1 package of cotton balls
- 1 polish remover
- 1 emery board
- 1 good nail trimmer
- 1 cuticle remover
- 1 decent fingernail polish
- 2 toe separators
- A couple of paper towels
You might want to pick up the foot cleaner too because it is good for getting your feet really clean.

Now you definitely would be interested to know, how the abovementioned items will help you in doing manicure / pedicure.

Removing Nail Polish:

First, grab some cotton balls (probably 4 or 5) and soak each in nail polish remover. Remove all of it from your nails. Try not to get too much on your cuticle because that stuff will dry it out quick. And never soak your whole finger because that is even worse.

Soaking and removing cuticles:

Your cuticle is like a fore skin. It is found at the bottom of your nail, where finger nail cartilage and skin meets. To remove cuticle, soak your nail in warm water for 3 minutes or less. Now use cartilage remover to push the cuticle down.

Trimming your fingernails:

Grab your trimmer and start trimming. General rules are as follows:
-Don't trim your nails after taking a bath or shower if you have soft nails.
-But if you have hard nails then soak them before trimming.
-Don't cut them too short. This can cause bleeding and you can even get an infection.

File Those Nails Down:

Grab your trusty emery board and smooth your fingernails until they look good. A word of caution: Don't use this board to scrape your nails. They will end up looking rough and ruined.

Exfoliating & Moisturizing Hands and Feet:

Create a quick sugar wash and massage yoru feet, arms, and legs. Do a quick rinse of your hands and then grab the pumice stone to run away all the rough spots on your feet. Rinse and scrub everything else. When you are finished use a good moisturizing cream or lotion everywhere.

Polish Those Nails

Remove excess moisturizer using polish remover. Polish your nails and dry them between coats, preferably minimum of four coats. If you have weak or brittle nails, place one or two coats of ridge filling nail polish on the nail as base coat to shore up the nail. Two coats of a colored nail polish are next, followed by a topcoat to add luster. Use foam toe separators to fingers, while polishing. Allow drying the polish.
