12/31 | DIY Holiday Pedicure | 5 Tips for the Best at Home Pedicure

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé. The opinions and text are all mine.

The holidays are coming up which means hosting people and going to lots of holiday parties. They are so fun because who doesn’t love seeing distant family members? But, if we are honest, they are exhausting at the same time. I know that for me, being on my feet all day is tiring. I like to prepare myself and my feet for the busy season with the best at home pedicure. I love giving myself a pedicure in the comfort of my own home. I thought I would share my best tips with you so that you can get ready for the holidays too! 

5 Tips for the BEST At-Home Pedicure:

  1. Use the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File

This thing is a game changer and probably the main reason I prefer at home pedicures. It buffs away all of your hard skin and leaves your feet so smooth. You’ll totally be able to feel the drastic difference after a few minutes and pretty much zero effort. For real, if you don’t have one yet, you need one! Add it to your holiday wish list or just pick one up for yourself at Walgreens! It can be a little hard to find in store, but you will be able to find it in the foot care aisle. BONUS- here is a $10 off coupon for you to use on it (available between 12/4/17-12/25/17). I love that it is electronic and battery operated because that means it does all the hard work for you. Between the electric power and the long lasting micro-abrasive particles with finely ground diamond crystals, it is no wonder the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File does the job so well.

2. Soak your Feet

Letting your feet soak in warm water for about 10 minutes will soften the skin and nails. Not to mention, it is relaxing! You can even add Epsom salts, essential oils, bath bombs, or citrus fruits to your foot bath!

3. The Massage

Grab some of your favorite scented lotion and give yourself a 5 minute foot massage. Even better – find someone in the house who loves you and have them pamper you with a luxurious and relaxing foot massage! 

4. Add Nail Art

Adding nail art to your pedicure is like the bow on top of a present! It just makes it a little bit more special and fun. Some tips for executing DIY nail art is to start simple, practice and sketch out what you want on paper first. Then use toothpicks or very small brushes to create the design. Adding the simple snowman face to my white pedicure was the perfect and easy way for me to make my pedicure more festive for the season. Isn’t he cute?!

5. Use a Good Top Coat

This final step is crucial! You have put lots of time and effort into this pedicure, you want it to last, right? The only way to make sure that happens is with a high quality top coat! The thicker the better! You may have to pay a little bit more, but it will be well worth it! 

So what do you think, are you ready to give yourself the best pedicure of your life? You now have all the tips you need to be successful and have a relaxing experience. Treat yourself before your schedule fills up with holiday parties and events. And don’t forget to pick up Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File from Walgreens with the $10 off coupon (valid between 12/4-12/25).
