I don’t know about y’all, but my feet get a little rough in the summer from spending so much time in sandals and being barefoot. If you live in a city, you know that your feet get real gross walking around in shoes with minimal coverage. I live in fear of stepping in street sludge.
I love getting pedicures, but I don’t get them often for a few reasons: they’re expensive, I don’t have a lot of time and I’m really ticklish on my feet. I have become somewhat of an expert of doing my own pedicures because I’m constantly scrubbing my feet down and having to redo my polish.
Plus, I get to sit around and binge-watch Netflix while I paint my toes! What’s better than that? In this week’s roundup, I’ve got your essentials for an at-home pedicure!
You've probably seen PedEgg on TV in a horrible infomercial. But, y'all, this thing is amazing! It gets off all that gross dead skin.
If you're not into PedEggs and want something a little less intense, a pumice stone works great too. Lather up your feet in the shower and scrub-a-dub-dub!
This cuticle cream is wonderful and smells like lemons for an added bonus. Let it sit on your cuticles for a few minutes and then push them back with a cuticle tool.
Peppermint Foot Lotion
I don't know why foot lotion always smells like peppermints, but it does. I don't hate it. I highly recommend slathering it on and throwing on some socks for a while.
These aloe-infused socks are one of my favorite things. They are so soft and cozy and really soften up your feet.
Your toenails are a lot harder than your fingernails so go for a medium to hard nail file.
Any polish will do, but I am LOVING Essie's The Girls Are Out for summer!
Fast Dry Top Coat
This is the definitive best top coat in the history of all top coats. You want your toes to dry quickly so you can walk around without smudging, and this top coat is a MUST.
