If I have a spare hour on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon, there’s something I love to do, something to pamper myself… I love to do home pedicures! I don’t want to have to rush out at the last minute though, looking for a scrub or polish, so I keep a basket handy of all the things I need for a DYI pedi. Here’s my list of 7 items to keep on hand for an at-home pedicure!
1. Sephora by OPI Nail Polish Remover
Price: $9.00 at sephora.com
This nail polish remover, made exclusively for Sephora, is gentle but effective, removing even the darkest of shades with just a few swabs with a cotton ball. It won’t dry your nails, or leave behind that icky white residue, like some removers. Keep some of this handy for taking off the polish from your last pedicure before you get started!
2. Bliss Blood Orange+White Pepper Sugar Scrub
Price: $36.00 at sephora.com
After you’re done soaking your feet in warm water for about 5 minutes, give them a good scrub, from toes to ankles, with this lush, sweet-smelling sugar scrub! It foams up nicely, and will leave your feet ready for the next pedicure step!
3. Tweezerman Pedro Callus Stone
Price: $20.00 at sephora.com
After your sugar scrub, rinse well, then gently file away those pesky rough spots and calluses with this ergonomic foot file! I like this one because it’s washable, which is nice, so you can keep it clean between home pedicures.
