How to Create a Spa Pedicure at Home
Oklahoma weather is so unpredictable. Though we are technically still in the winter season, some days feel like the middle of Spring. On days like these, I proudly break out my sandals and sundresses to soak up that lovely sun.
The only problem? My winter-ridden cracked feet.
While I could run out to my local nail salon for a pedicure, I really don’t want to shell out that kind of cash. Instead, I like to give myself an at-home spa pedicure. It’s not as difficult as you may think, especially when you use the right products.
I recently partnered with Amopé, one of my favorite brands, to use during one of my at-home pedicures, too.
So, I headed to my local Walgreens yesterday to pick up everything I needed for a home spa pedicure. I have to say – it’s really nice having a store right around the corner.
I immediately headed straight to foot care section of the store to grab a Amopé Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File device and some refills.
Next, I threw in some nail polish remover, cotton pads, toe dividers and nail polish in the cart, then made my way to check out at the beauty counter (which didn’t have a line, yay!). I was in and out in no time and back home in a just a few minutes. It was time to get this at-home spa pedicure officially underway!
As I mentioned earlier, my feet were in bad shape. My toenails had chipped polish, they needed a good clipping and MY HEELS WERE SO DRY AND CRACKED.
Knowing that I could use the Amopé file either dry or wet, I decided to soak my feet in some water soapy water before filing. This not only helped soften the feet a bit before treating them, but it was very relaxing. I may have been playing some spa music on my phone, too. 😃
While still sitting on the side of the tub, I used the Amopé Wet & Dry Foot File on the rough areas of my feet. My heels were by far the driest sections, so I concentrated mainly on that.
The Amopé was extremely easy to use, got the job done quickly, and was extremely gentle on my skin. The device was 100 times more efficient than a standard foot file, as well as much less painful.
After using the Amopé Wet & Dry Foot File, I dried off my feet and used a pump nail polish remover (much easier than a regular bottle) to remove all of the old toenail polish. It was then time to paint.
To get me in the mood for Spring and sun, I went with a color that reminded me of the beach. So fun!
When my pedicure was all said and done, I took an after photo so that I could really see the difference that the Amopé Wet & Dry Foot File made to my cracked heels. I believe that the before and after pic is pretty telling.
I’m a fan.
I also love that I can integrate the Amopé Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File into my regular bathing routine, making it even easier to keep my feet sandal-ready this Spring and Summer.
Are you ready for sandal weather?
