Here is a brief comparison of the prices between a beauty salon and an at-home pedicure.
While a nail salon can often do a better job and can be more fun, those of you who are on a budget, do pedicures on a regular basis, or cannot leave your home often enough to make going to a beauty salon for a pedicure a practical idea, should consider doing a homemade pedicure.
Step 7: Apply a Base Coat – A base coat smooths your toenails to ensure the nail polish goes on without bubbles or bumps. Apply one coat. Not only is it more affordable, but the supplies used for an at-home pedicure can be used time and time again, making it even easier on your budget. Allow to dry, and then, apply a second coat. I personally like bright pink or red – colors that really stand out! I also enjoy purple; I have many purple bottles that “dry faster” than normal ones. Before painting your toenails with color, allow the base coat to completely dry.
Step 10: Apply a Top Coat – A clear, finishing coat of nail polish can often harden your nails and ensure that the colored polish stays on your toenails longer..
Step 8: Paint Your Toenails – Pick a fun color of nail polish, and paint away. Also, apply sun-block if your feet will be in the sun.
Step 6: Apply Toe Separators – Once you paint your toenails, toe separators will ensure that you do not smudge one toenail’s polish onto another one. Sometimes I am impatient or in a hurry, so I like the “jet dry” ones.
Step 9: Moisturize and Apply Sun-Block – After your polish has completely dried, keep your clean and beautiful toes perfect by applying lotion. Therefore, apply these foam separators before painting your nails.
