We thought it would be a great time to try out some at-home beauty treatments since we’re now in quarantine for a couple of weeks and confined to our homes. We’ve covered creating a salon-style face at home, but we haven’t yet talked about DIY spa pedicures.

In a perfect (or, should I say, “the world we used to be accustomed to”) world, of course! In an ideal world, we would be getting a spa pedicure in our local salon, spa, or nail bar. But since this is not an option in the near future, we decided to show you how to get a spa pedicure yourself at home ….. We promise it’s easy!

Step 1: Get your tools ready

Setting the mood is key to making DIY pedicures feel like spa treatments. If you want to create an environment that is relaxing, we’re talking about soothing music, burning the essential oils, and lighting the candle that has been gathering dust for months. Then ensure you have the following tools at your disposal:

Nail polish remover

Cotton Pads

Foot or Bath Soak


Nail clippers

Foot file

Nail file/buffer


Paper towel

Toe separators

Top coat that dries quickly

Nail polish


Cotton buds


Step 2: Prep your Tooties

It would be best if you used a cotton pad to remove any remaining polish from your toes before starting the pedi. (A cotton ball can leave cotton “hairs” on your toes!) It is best to soak the cotton pad in nail polish remover before removing it.



Step 3: Soak your feet …. and relax your senses.

Next, I recommend my favorite step – the foot soak. It will relax you and soften your foot. Pour a small amount of relaxing foot or bath soak in warm water. (This can be done in a tub, bowl, or foot spa!) Put your feet in. The Phytomer Oligomer Relaxing Bath will make you feel like a king or queen! This is a heavenly, ultra-relaxing, lightly foaming bath that’s enriched with Oligomer. It’s a sodium-reduced concentration of seawater.

Another bath soak I love is the Pure Lyophilized Sea Water Bath. It contains unique seawater minerals and trace elements to balance skin and create a tension-free experience.

Do not soak your feet for more than 5 minutes. You don’t want to end up with two wrinkled, large prunes. Towel dry.


Step 4 – Scrub your feet, not forgetting your legs

Give yourself the ultimate spa experience by massaging a smooth exfoliator onto your feet and legs for a few moments. This will not only soothe the skin but also relieve any tension. This step is best done with the Silky Skin Body scrub. It gently removes dead skin cells and impurities and smoothes and softens the skin.


Step 5 – Remove dead skin

After your feet have been conditioned and made soft, it is time to remove any dead skin that has accumulated on your soles. This can be done by gently scrubbing your feet with a foot file or pumice stone. Pay special attention to the sides and bottoms of your heels, where the most buildup occurs. Also, please pay attention to your balls fe,  feet, and the area around your fingers. It is important to remove any layers of skin, not just smooth out rough areas.


Step 6: Trim, file, and shape your nails

This step requires good-quality clippers, followed by a file to shape and smooth the nails.

Trim any longer nails. Trim your toenails to the top of the skin. Then, using your nail file in a single direction to make it even, you can smooth the raw edge and corners (depending on the shape of the nail).



Step 7: Moisturise your skin and massage it.

For the final part of this foot treatment, apply a rich moisturizer to your feet and massage your legs from your toes up. This will nourish and rehydrate the skin. This step is best done with the Multi-Active Pevonia Foot Cream. It provides outstanding repair to feet by soothing, restoring, restoring, and replenishing.



Apply nail polish

If you have toe separators, grab them now. If not, roll or twist a piece of paper towel and weave it through your toes. This will prevent the polish from slipping. Toe separators are handy, but if you don’t have them, you can use a paper towel to weave them through your toes to prevent polish from smudging.

If you want, apply a base first. Otherwise, your toes will be ready for color. I cannot recommend using a nail polish that is free from toxic ingredients, which are commonly found in nail polishes. I love the nail polishes. The polishes are made with high-quality Australian ingredients and do not contain DBP or Toluene. They also don’t contain Resin, Camphor, Formaldehyde or Camphor. There isn’t much of a range, but there are a few different shades. I have never experienced any problems with my toenails weeks after application, as I did with other nail polishes, which can make your nails weak and yellow.

Then, shake or roll your polish bottle to get the correct consistency. Paint a thin coat of polish, followed by a second, with smooth, even strokes. Wait a few moments between each coat.

Finish your DIY pedicure by applying a topcoat, preferably one with quick drying. This will prolong the life of your polish and seal in its color. If you’ve got any “rogue” polish marks (let’s be honest, we weren’t exactly nail pros before!) You can remove the marks with your polish remover, a cotton tip, and a small amount of it.

The results may not be as good as your trusted nail technician’s, but your feet and nails will still look great …. and will last you until your next spa pedi.
