Prepare your feet:
Fill your bathtub or a bucket with warm water. Fill the tub with enough water to soak the feet. Add some bath salts or desired amount of foot soak into the tub. Let it dissolve. If you do not have bath salts or foot soak try salt from your kitchen.
Clean the nails:
Remove any nail polish from your toes.
Soak your feet:
Soak your feet minimum for 15-20 minutes. You may enjoy relaxing music, interesting magazine or wear a soothing face pack and enjoy the warm water on your tried feet.
Remove dead skin cells by gently scrubbing calluses and heels with a pumice stone. This is an important step to attain soften and touchable feet. This would help to exfoliate your feet, resulting in soft feet.
Massage you feet:
Dry your feet with a clean towel. Massage gently one foot at a time, then do the other. Begin by massaging the cream (Les Savons Foot Lotion soothes and smoothes rough feet) gently into the whole foot, top and bottom, toes to ankle. End this portion with strokes going from your toes to your ankles.
Trim toenails, cutting them in a square shape which will prevent ingrown nails. Gently using the orange stick or cuticle stick push back cuticles . This will allow you to paint your entire nail by guiding the supple cuticle out of the way. Never cut your cuticles — they are necessary for keeping bacteria from entering the skin.
Pick a color:
If you wish to apply nail polish, choose a desired shade of polish. Apply each coat at a time, slowly. Apply the next coat once the last coat is completely dry. Repeat the step until you have achieved a desired shade of the polish.
Let your nails dry for at least half an hour, then rub a dab of olive oil into your cuticles and nail beds to moisturize them.
