Cuticle Nipper are essential for women to get their toenails trimmed and groomed for the summer. We adore pairing adorable sandals with equally adorable shorts, and we expect the appearance of our feet to be every bit as lovely as that of our hair and cosmetics. No one likes to see toenails that yellowed and overgrown while the wearer is wearing attractive sandals with straps.
How to get a professional pedicure:
Amazing results can achieved with Cuticle Nipper professional pedicure, but the service can get quite pricey. If you give yourself a pedicure at home every once in a while, you can maintain your toenails looking gorgeous at a fraction of the cost of going to the salon for a spa treatment in between those times.
You only need the appropriate tools, which are as follows:
- A dry skin buffer or pumice stone.
- Toe separators; but, cotton balls will work just as well (and are far more affordable!!).
- A piece of emery paper.
- A remover for the cuticles.
- An orangewood stick.
- Polish for the base and the top coat.
- An eraser for polish.
- Toenail clippers.
- A dishpan or any other container into which your feet can fit easily and which filled with warm, soapy water.
- Cotton balls.
- Cuticle nippers, if you want to use them.
- Nail buffer, if desired.
As soon as you’ve amassed all of these supplies, you’ll be able to launch your very own at-home spa.
Let the good times roll:
1. Remove any old polish from your nails with the polish remover. It is still a good idea to clean the toes with the remover even if you are not currently wearing any lacquer on your nails.
2. While holding the cotton ball soaked in polish remover against the nail for approximately five to ten seconds to soften the lacquer, wipe the nail clean to remove the polish.
3. Spend the next five minutes soaking your feet in warm, soapy water. (You should also soak the pumice stone.)
4. Maintain balance by standing with one foot in the water and the other on dry land.
5. At the base of each toenail, apply cuticle remover and massage it in. Let the remover work on the cuticle for about a minute to make it more pliable (or according to the directions).
6. Using the angled side of the orangewood stick, carefully and slowly work the cuticle backward. You can also use a clean towel or cloth to remove any dead cuticle that may be present.
7. At this point, you can start to cut your nails, but you should make sure that the nail is shorter than the toe. Be cautious, as cutting the toenails too short can result in ingrown toenails.
8. Make the nails into a square form by filing them with the emery board.
9. With the nail buffer, even out any uneven ridges that may be present on the nails.
10. Start rubbing the bottoms of your feet and heels with the wet pumice stone (or buffing sponge), making sure to focus on any rough spots. Avoid rubbing too harshly, but keep in mind that you might need to use some pressure in order to properly remove the dead skin. Because of the warm soak, the skin on your feet should be nice and pliable, so doing so shouldn’t be too challenging.
11. Immediately give your foot a quick washing, pat it dry, and then apply moisturizer to your entire foot, as well as your calves and knees.
12. You are now able to take a brief rest and relax in order to allow the lotion to absorbed by the skin.
13. Use the nail polish remover to clean the lotion residue off of your toenails, and then go back over them again. If you omit this step, you will have a difficult time getting your nail polish to stay on your nails.
14. Use the separator between your toes or cotton balls to separate your toes.
15: After applying the base coat, wait one minute for it to dry completely.
16: Apply two coats of your preferred nail color, and then wait five minutes for it to dry completely.
17. After applying the top coat, wait for it to dry completely.
18. After an hour, your toenails should be totally dry and ready for use.
