Do-It-Yourself Pedicure
 Here's how to transform your feet from dull to dynamite in 20 minutes
Your feet are good to you - they carry you everywhere and support your body - and it's time to return the favour. Help them look and feel incredible this summer by treating them to regular mini-makeovers. If you're cringing at the thought of expensive spa bills, worry-not. Avon has everything you need to get a fast, pampering pedicure at home.

Must-have tools and products
A few inexpensive essentials are required to get your feet in tip-top shape. Make sure you have them on hand before you begin your pedicure.
  • Nail polish remover.
  • Cuticle pusher.
  • Nail file and buff.
  • Nail clippers.
  • Cuticle balm.  
  • Pumice stone or micro-fine foot file.
  • Moisturizer or foot cream.
  • Base coat, top coat and coloured polish.
TIP: Pick up a pedicure kit to save. A kit is a great way to get your pedicure essentials and it's more affordable than buying your tools individually. Why not order the Mini Pedicure Set - on sale for only $3.99 and includes steel nail clipper, 2 foam toesles, emery nail file, wooden cuticle stick and case.


Step 1: Use polish remover
Wipe your nails with remover to get rid of old lacquer and to sanitize your toes before you start working on them. The alcohol in nail polish remover helps clean the area.

Step 2: Soak your feet
Fill a basin with warm water. Add a drop or two of your favourite essential oil or a capful of
Tranquil Moments Relaxation Foam Bath to make the experience more relaxing. Keep your tender tootsies in the footbath for at least five minutes to soften your cuticles.

Next, dry your feet by patting lightly with a plush towel. Be sure that your cuticles are still soft and damp; it can be very uncomfortable to push back dry cuticles.

Step 3: Work on your cuticles
Clean up your nail beds and make room for polish by giving your cuticles a delicate nudge with a cuticle pusher. Where the skin meets the nail, gently push back, moving all the way around from one side of the nail to the other.

Step 4: Clip, shape and buff your nails
If you're nails are long, trim them with clippers to minimize the amount of free edge.

With a nail file, shape your toenails, making the tips straight and sides round. Be careful not to rub the file back and forth, as it causes trauma to the nail. You want to go in one direction. At the end of every stroke, quickly lift and go back to the beginning and start again. Using this motion gives the surface of your nails a speedy buff to help even out ridges.

Then, rub
Nail Experts Rose Cuticle Balm into your toenails and cuticles. It helps keep them soft, moisturized and nourished.

Step 5: Tame calluses
Smooth out calluses or rough spots with a pumice stone or micro-fine foot file. Try Avon’s exclusive
Sassy Soles 4-1 Pedicure tool, which contains Pumice, Coarse file, Steel file, and Brush to 1. pumice, 2. exfoliate, 3. file, and 4. brush.  Just don't get overzealous and remove them completely, as they help to protect your tootsies. If you remove too much, your feet can feel a little bit sensitive. As well, avoid exfoliating areas with cracks or cuts.

Next, massage with moisturizer. Choose between one of the great
Footworks moisturizers, such as Deep Moisture Cream or Berry Mint Moisturizing Cream.

Step 6: Brush on polish
Put spacers between your toes to avoid smudging the polish. If there's still cuticle balm on your nails, clean them off with nail polish remover (leave the product on your cuticles). Residual oil will make nail polish lift.

And now it's time for the polish: start with a thin layer of
Smooth Beginnings Base Coat, which instantly smoothes out ridges and primes your nails for a smooth, flawless finish. Apply two to four coats of nail enamel (the more you put on, the more intense the hue will be), waiting a minute or two between each layer. Complete the look with a layer of UV Gloss Guard Top Coat to extend the enamel wear.

TIP: If enamel gets on your toes or cuticles, use Smudge Corrector, which smoothes away mistakes in a second.
