DIY: How to do a Perfect Self Pedicure

Hello beauties JEvery girl wants her feet to look the best, which means no cracked heels and blisters, but only smooth and supple skin. Use these home seven simple steps to get a perfect pedicure right in the comfort of your home:Step 1: Remove the nail polishStart by removing all of the odd nail polish on your nail using cotton pads and nail polish remover.  Put some nail remover onto a cotton pad just enough to do all of the toes hold it down onto each toe for couple of seconds and then wipe away really gently. Now to get rid of that yellowish outer layer on the nail, massage with lavender oil for about a minute and then buff the nail. Take normal lavender oil and apply it to your finger and then apply it to toe and massage until it sinks in. First do the big toe and then all of the other toes exactly the same way. For buffing use a strip, rub against the toe that will leave the nail glossy and shiny.

Step 2: Cutting and filing the nails DIY: How to do a Perfect Self PedicureFor clipping the toe nails use a fine clipper and leave it in any rigid shape as you will later use a nail file for nice and smooth shape.
