5 steps to the perfect pedi

Sandal season is officially here! Get those tootsies in tip-top shape with our super-cinchy DIY pedicure tricks. No more waitin’ around at a pricy salon—you can get pretty piggies at home.


1. Soak your feet.

Remove any lingering nail polish. Then, Break out a bucket or fill the tub with warm water. Squirt in some lavender-scented soap or a foot soak. Splash around for 10-15 minutes to soften your skin.

2. Buff it up.

We’re suckers for scrubs but, let’s be honest, they can get expensive. Follow our recipe and whip up a sweet foot treat in your kitchen. Slather it on and totally blast away dead ‘n’ dry skin (blech). Then, rinse your feet and pat them dry with a towel.



1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons light oil, such as almond, canola, or sunflower

2 tablespoons milk



Mix together a:ll the ingredients into a smooth cream.


3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.

Right now, we’re beyond hooked on shea butter creams. Massage some into your peds (it’s OK if they’re still a little damp—you’ll lock in more moisture that way).

Psst: Got cracked skin? Apply a salve to make them supple.

4. Prep your nails.

This step is sooo key! Use some nail polish remover to clean your nail beds. It’ll help your polish stick like glue. Then, swipe on base coat. Never, ever skip it (that’s like asking for chips).

5. Polish up.

Now it’s time to slap on two thin coats of polish. We’re all about blues and greens right now, but classic coral is perf for this time of year, too.
