Save money and have fun with a home pedicure. You probably already have everything you need at home:


  • 1 good nail file,
  • 1 foot file
  • 1 big bowl (enough for a foot bath with warm water)
  • Some cotton balls
  • 1 cuticle stick
  • Nail clippers
  • Nail polish remover (acetone-free is best)
  • 2 fluffy towels
  • 2 small towels,
  • Nail polish
  • An exfoliant or foot scrub
  • Your favorite lotion


  • Gather everything you need next to you and make yourself comfortable on the couch.
  • Fill your footbath with water and four tablespoons of oil. Place the bath on one of your towels.
  • Warm the 2 small towels in the microwave.
  • Remove your old nail polish.
  • Cut and trim your nails.
  • Soak your feet in the warm water for 5-10 minutes.
  • Now use the cuticle stick to gently push your cuticles back. Use the scrub to rub off any dry skin. Rinse and rub in lotion.
  • Wrap the warm towels around your legs and leave it on until the towels cool.
  • Smooth out any rough skin with your file.
  • Paint your pretty toes!

Hint: For a fun, hip new color, try black!
