While French manicures are more common these days, a French pedicure can be a great way to dress up your feet for any season. The clean look of the pedicure is a must for every woman. You know it’s important to care for your feet and toenails regularly and it’s also important to give your feet a pedicure at least every two weeks, though it’s better to do it once a week.
Even if you decide to do a French pedicure, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have your pedicure professionally done in an expensive salon. You can do your own perfect French pedicure in the comforts of your home. Sure, it may be difficult at first, but with a little bit of practice and patience you will do your own French pedicure with almost no effort.
You can go with the traditional white and transparent polishes or get creative with some bright colors. Trust me, you can give your toes a whole new look without ever stepping foot in a salon.
Read on to find out a few essential steps to a perfect French pedicure. With a French pedicure, you can always show your beautiful feet without any shame.
1. Assemble your supplies
The first step to a perfect French pedicure is to assemble all of the essential supplies you will need for your pedicure. You are going to need two bottles of nail polish, one opaque and one transparent, as well as a sealer and a primer if you want your French pedicure to last more than a day or two.
You will also need a basin of warm water, a pumice stone and nail file/clippers and some nail polish remover. You need to make sure that your nippers, pumices, files and scissors are in shape.
Having everything ready to go will help you move faster and will lessen the chance of the pedicure getting messed up. You should also have a towel handy, too.
You may think that this step is not so important, but do you really want to run about looking for necessary items while you’re in the middle of your pedicure? No one wants, so we should admit that this step is a must.
If you are going to do a French pedicure regularly, I suggest you to store your pedicure tools and nail polishes in one place. This way, you can easily skip this step the next time you want to get a French pedicure.
