Summer is officially here…finally! And with that comes the exposure of the feet…yes, that’s the feet that have been wrapped up in socks all winter and have come out all pale and white and starved of the sun. Open-toed wedges, slides, flip-flops and sandals don’t leave much room for your toes and feet to hide.
I am a huge fan of creating an ‘at home spa’ and this has recently extended to my feet with Scholl’s Pedicure Foot Spa.
I first poured half cold water and half boiling water into the Scholl Pedicure Foot Spa to create the perfect temperature. This is great after a long day-especially if you have been on your feet all day. I find that if my feet feel refreshed then this slowly spreads to the rest of my body so take care of feet first!
The Pedicure Foot Spa is really easy to use. It is plug and go with a large power button on the top. Once it is on, there is a vibration at the bottom of the foot spa and this gently massages your feet and increases circulation. It also comes with a splash-proof pad to decrease the chance that you will end up with water all over the floor.
Once your feet are fully relaxed and dry, it’s time to make them look as good as they feel. I take off all traces of polish with Crabtree & Evelyn’s Nail Polish Remover Wipes, which are oil-based and very gentle and nourishing for the nails. Think of them as a cleansing oil-just for nail polish.
I used the Scholl Pedicure Kit that comes with the Pedicure Foot Spa to perfect my toenails. I buffed, filed and cut away any jagged edges and it wasn’t long before my toes were looking quite nice…like I had received a professional pedi!
For toenails, follow up with a clear base coat and the colour of your choice. I used Essie Professional Application in Peach Daiquiri.
Voilà! Perfectly polished toes. Now…where did I put those open-toed wedge sandals?
