1. Remove All The Polish
2. Soak and Trim
If you want the full at-home pedicure experience, soak your feet in a nice warm tub with some bath salts or bath oils to soften and cleanse the skin. Then, trim your toenails and cuticle, and dry before painting.
3. Buff Your Nails
For a longer-lasting pedicure, try buffing your nails with a small buffing brush before painting them. Be sure to wipe away any nail dust that accumulates.
4. Choose a Smaller Brush
If you have smaller toenails, it can be tricky to get the polish on without making a mess. Opt for nail polish with a more narrow brush head, or use a separate brush to apply your nail polish with ease.
5. Apply Base + Top Coat
Keep your toenails from staining by using a base coat, and apply a gel-like top coat to ensure your pedicure lasts as long as possible.
6. Trick: Take a Hot Shower
Once your toe nails are dry, remember your toe nails are pretty forgiving when it comes to applying nail polish. If you’re having trouble staying inside the lines, don’t fret! Let your polish dry completely and then take a hot shower or soak your feet in warm water and watch the polish on the skin flake right off.
Rock it like a Redhead!
