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!!

Some may say a pedicure is the perfect time to relax, unwind, and get pampered.  I can agree with this.  Freshly painted toes are one of the best feelings in the world!  Unfortunately, most pedicures come at a heavy price; especially if you go regularly!  Instead of hitting up the salon every 2 weeks, try giving yourself an at-home pedicure!  It’s simple and easy; plus, your bank account will thank you!  Give it a try!

As crazy as it may sound, a milk bath is actually beneficial to your feet by smoothing calluses.  Start by filling a bowl with warm water and milk.  Let your feet soak for as long as you’d like!  Next, rub cuticle oil on each toe and start to push back each cuticle with your finger nail.  Rinse each foot and dry them off with a towel!  Now, cut back and file your nails to your liking!

Refill the bowl with clean hot water.  Using a pumice stone or foot scrub, scrub away any dry, unwanted skin.  Be sure to target your toes and heels!  Once your feetChelsea Crockett- painted toenails feel new again, rinse away the dead skin, dry your feet, and lather them with lotion!  Last but not least, pick out your polish and paint away!

Next time you’re dying for a pedicure, but don’t have the money to do so, try giving yourself one!  You may surprise yourself!

XOXO,

Chelsea
