At Home Pedicure: my Weekly Guilty Pleasure {Guilty Pleasures}

October 9, 2014

As the weather cools down in the south, my feet retreat into Toms, and boots.  So I like to indulge in at home pedicures in order to enjoy the cozy footwear.  They are a great guilty pleasure after a long day at work. It is also a way to keep feet soft in the closest thing we have to dry weather.   Lock your doors, turn on some good music, light a candle, open up some chocolate, and give my steps to an at home pedicure a try.


1. Remove your old nail polish while filling up a tub or basin with warm water.  Add some epson salt to soften up your feet.

2. Enjoy a nice long soak.  Take a few deep breaths in order to enjoy the quiet.

3. After I soaking your feet take a moment to trim and shape nails.

4. Pick a great fall color in the purple, brown, or burgundy family.   Use a base and top coat to seal the color.


5. Use your favorite lotion to moisturize as a final step.
