Step 1: Remove the coatings on nails with nail polish remover

After poaching your feet, use a foot filer to scale out the dead from feet. The hard areas are the sole, skin of ball of big toe and near the malleolus. Rub against the skin to remove the dead skin.

Step 4: Shape up the nails.

Step 6: Apply the moisturizer.

This is one of the concepts of pedicure i.e. to keep the skin soft and moisturized. A point to remember is that always use unscented moisturizer. The synthetic ones make the nails crack.

Step 8: Apply the base coat first.

The professionals say that base coat avoid the direct contact of nail polish to the nail and it sits on for a longer time.

Step 9: Women! Paint the walls, Men! stop here.

The moment of truce has arrived for women. Apply 2 coats of nail polish and wait for it to dry after application.

The pedicure for men is same as above neglecting the base coat and nail paints.

Step 10: Top it with a cherry.

Finish the process by applying a topcoat which gives a continuous shine and freshness to your polish. The nail polishes remain intact for 12 hours but dipping the nails in cold water make it live a bit longer.

Now you get a salon quality pedicure and the effects are real.
