Spring Pedicure Essentials

The essential products you need for pulling off a quality pedicure at home.

Sandal season is coming (anyone else itching for a new pair of Birks?) and that means your chipped toenail polish is no longer in seasonal hiding. If an hour in the massage chair isn’t working it’s way into your schedule, don’t fret. These at-home pedicure essentials will have your tootsies ready for public viewing in now time.

In never hurts to start an at-home pedicure with a 10-20 minute foot soak. Fill a basin (or the tub) with warm water and your favorite essential oils (we love lavender or peppermint) and then advance through the following steps: 1. Treat yourself to an exfoliating foot scrub with this delightful product from Essie ($10.99). Kudos if you can get someone else to do the rubbing. 2. Get rid of dead or dry winter skin with this inexpensive and natural pumice stone by SwissCo ($1.49). 3. Clean up hangnails and your cuticles with a cuticle clipper ($26.00) for a polished look. 4. Prep legs and feet with a quick layer of Essie’s Feet in the Clouds Leg & Foot Cream ($10.99).  5. Welcome spring with one of these gorgeous (and eco-friendly!) shades from everyone’s favorite mani/pedi guru, Jenna Hipp ($32.00 for set). 6. Get into those cute sandals even quicker with these ultra fast drying drops, ($2.99). 7. Before you head out the door, add superb hydration, a radiant glow and a pineapple-y scent by applying Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics Vitamin C Body Oil ($58.00).
