It may be winter, but keeping your feet perfectly pedicured is important for those moments when shoes come off in the presence of someone special.
STEP ONE: CLEAN AWAYRemove any signs of polish from toes using a nail polish remove that works for natural, gel or artificial nails. Clip nails to desired length and shape using a nail filer. Buff nails for a natural sheen.
STEP TWO: SOAK, SCRUB, AND BUFFSoak your feet in warm water for about two minutes to soften and cleanse feet. Use an exfoliator or foot scrub to gently remove tough skin. A foot file also works wonders for those stubborn calluses.
STEP THREE: CUTICLE CARECuticles are excess dead skin that appear at the base of your nail – this can be removed or pushed back with a cuticle remover. Apply a nourish nail oil for extra care.
STEP FOUR: APPLY BASEDon’t forgo the base coat. It prepares the nail for the polish, and acts as a barrier that protects your nail bed for nail discolouration.
STEP FIVE: POLISH PERFECTGet the perfect polish by aplying 3 layers (middle, side, side) – let it dry, then apply and repeat. Finally, apply a top coat to seal in colour.
