A DIY pedicure in 6 easy steps

Have you scheduled in some time for self-care this weekend? I highly recommend kicking things off with a DIY pedicure, and here's how in 6 easy steps...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Create a vibe
Light some candles, pour a glass of wine, pop your fave Spotify playlist on, and find yourself a cosy spot (whether it's the bathroom, lounge, or outdoor deck) to chill while you're giving your feet some love
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Time to soak
Fill the bathtub, footbath (or even a laundry bucket will do), with enough warm water to reach your ankles, and add a dash of natural soap or body wash. While you soak one foot, leave the other foot out to remove any old nail polish, and then switch-a-roo
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Scrub the week away 
Use your fave foot scrub all over your feet, between your toes, and up to your ankle. If you don't have a foot scrub on hand, you can make one using just olive oil, epsom salt and poppy seeds - or use a pumice stone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Clip, Clip
Dry your feet and trim the toe nails straight across with nail clippers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Nourish & hydrate 
Massage your feet (working in between the toes, and around the ankle) with a moisturiser high in shea butter, coconut, and/or vitamin E. If you have a cuticle oil (Hanami 'Rescue Me' is perfect for this step) use this on each toe and massage around and in to the nail bed.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
6. Polish to perfection 
Now is your toe's time to shine, literally! You can use a toe separator if you have one, or a piece of tissue (rolled up length-wise and woven between the toes) also does the trick. Apply a base coat, 2 coats of colour, and a top coat to seal the deal - waiting 5 minutes between every coat before applying the next.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hey, your feet look AMAZING! And I bet you feel pretty relaxed now too.
