Getting a pedicure or doing your own is a summer must! It’s essential to have fabulously, colorful nails that stick-out with any outfit! It’s the only thing that won’t get ruined in the summer heat (aka: frizzy hair and melted makeup). So how exactly do you keep that pedi going strong after all that your feet go through?! Follow these simple tips for a long-lasting pedicure!Chelsea Crockett- cuticle oil

Have you ever walked on a sandy beach and noticed how dry your toes look after a certain amount of time? Like your skin, your nails can become dry and brittle. This also contributes to your polish chipping. Keep your toes moisturized and polish silky-smooth by applying cuticle oil to the area. It’s also important not to shower after “just because your toes are dry”. Give it a few hours before getting in water. There’s always a possibility that a little pocket can allow water to get under the polish.

If you’re doing your own pedicure, begin by cleaning your toes with acetone. This removes all oils from the toenails, which allows polish to stick better! It’s also important never skip the base and top coat! This will save you the time of touching them up in a few days. When you’re finished putting color on each toe, make sure there’s no polish on your skin. If there is polish attached to your nail and skin, the polish can tear off very easily. No one wants that!

Now get off your computer, go find some fun nail polish, and get your pedi on!!

Hot oil manicure is an effective treatment for dry, brittle nails and cuticles. It doesn’t only strengthen the nails and cuticles, it’s also softens and nourishes them. This treatment is great for those dry winter nails! In this treatment you can use any natural oils you have at home! Looking for a way to pamper yourself? Look no further!

Ingredients:

 

1. Mix all the oils together and heat it up (microwave) for about 10 seconds. The oil should be warm, but not hot.

2. Soak both of your hands in a bowl of warm water for about 15 minutes. This will soften the cuticles and nails.

3.After that, rub a piece of lime of lemon on each of the nail. This will exfoliate and brighten the nails and loosen up the cuticles, too!

4. For the last step, massage the hot oil into each nail and leave it on until it dries.

And there you have it! You can get a five star manicure at home!

XOXO, Chels
