DIY: Pedicure @ home step by step

Dear ladies,
I am sure you know how expensive beauty can be. Cut your hair and get a fresh color for this spring, have some massage, get your nails done etc. So I suggest that you save some money and do what you can at home. Pedicure for example. It's not difficult at all! So, let's see what do we need for this beauty diy:

1. nail remover (if you have old nail polish)

2. cotton pads
I believe you don't need an explanation for this :) but use it to remove old nail polish.

3. nail clippers
Trim your nails.
              I am using this set because it has almost everything I need and it' s perfect for travel.

4. nail files
Use it to shape your nails.
5. warm water and towel
6. essential oil / bath salt *
7. foot scrub
8. foot file / pumice stone
Be gentle with this one, you don't want to hurt yourself! Slowly remove dead skin.

9. cuticle pusher
(the same set i showed on 4. nail clippers)
This is a must! I know it can be painful if you never did it, but it is obligatory if you want your nails looking good.

10. moisturising cream
Use a generous amount so that you have really soft heels. But be careful- avoid nails area because your nail polish won't last long if it's greasy.
11. finger divider*
Instead of this you can use a few pens.
12. nail polish of your choice
I used pink one, decorated with white dots and then used mat top coat.



*13. quick dry nail spray
If you are always in a hurry like I am, then try this trick!
